Alen Babic v Eric Molina Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions

Alen Babic may be from Croatia, but he has a cult following in the United Kingdom. The British boxing fans love Babic because he means business and his main intention is to knock his opponents out quickly.

The 30-year-old is unbeaten in his eight professional fights, with all of them coming by way of knockout. This will be his ninth fight and the seventh in England. Fans attending the fight will be wanting it to end quickly, and so will Babic.

Babic has never been scheduled to fight more than eight rounds. The longest he has ever fought is five rounds when he retired Mark Bennett back in August.

Babic constantly admits he doesn’t really train. He believes he is built to knock people out. Guess what? I believe him.

His opponent is no mug. Eric Molina has twice fought a world title. In 2015 he was knocked out in the ninth round by Deontay Wilder, while 18 months later he was sparked out inside three rounds by Anthony Joshua.

This doesn’t mean he is a bad fighter. Many people have been knocked out by Wilder and AJ. The Mexican-American has a record of 34 fights with 27 wins and seven losses.

Molina has won 20 of his wins by knockout, and if he connects with Babic early on, he could claim a shock win.

Don’t worry, I don’t actually think that is what will happen. Babic has one thing on his mind and that is to knock Molina flat on his backside.

The opening two rounds will see Babic swinging wildly in an attempt to knock his opponent out, while Molina will try to stay out of his reach. This fight will come to an abrupt end in the third when Babic connects flush on the chin and sends Molina to sleep.

Alen Babic v Eric Molina Boxing Betting Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Alen Babic: “I don’t think Molina is up to the challenge. His time is long past. My time is just coming. They do know now that I can knock out anybody in the world, even if they’re 40 kilos heavier than me. They still don’t know how good I am.”

Eric Molina: “It’s really not easy to travel as far as we do at short notice, but I firmly believe that I have what it takes to knock this guy out on Saturday. I look at him as a reckless fighter. I look at him as somebody that has no respect for the heavyweight division. This heavyweight division has a very brutal way of humbling fighters at different times. It’s a tough lesson that a lot of fighters have to learn. I’ve learnt it, Joshua has learnt it, Wilder has learnt it, the best of the best have learnt it. Babic is going to have to learn that one day to respect this division. He could throw 100 punches in one round. He’s going to need to throw 100 punches to get me out of there in one round. I’ve just got to throw one punch. One punch and I will devastatingly knock him out. Whatever he thinks in his mind is up to him, I just focus on my energy and my short camp. I know exactly what I’ve got to do.”
