John Molina Jr punishes Rob Frankel

On Friday night, ESPN-2 hosted it's Friday Night Fights with Teddy Atlas and Joe Tessitore at ringside in the Pechanga Resort & Casino, Temecula, California.


The night had blood and action under the lights.


In the main event, lightweight John Molina Jr  (22-1-19) punished Rob Frankel (28-11-5) in a blood fest that resembled a Hollywood movie . Frankel took a beating to the delight of a packed house at the Pechanga.. Along with that beating, Frankel had numerous deep facial cuts, swollen eyes, and blood was spraying everywhere at ringside. The referee Raul Caiz Jr. looked at Frankel's face and decided that enough is enough and stopped the contest at the end of round five, with respect, to the difference of opinion from Frankel's corner. Frankel gave his all, but merely did not have the sovereignty to over-power Molina.


In further action, Jr Welterweight Mauricio “El Maestro” Herrera (18-1, 7 KOs) won a controversial ten round majority decision over Mike “The Silent Assassin” Dallas, Jr. (17-2-1, 7 KOs). Scores were 95-95, 98-92, 96-94 in favor of Herrera. After the fight, Dallas was highly distraught as he felt he clearly won the bout. Everybody at ringside thought that Dallas Jr. won the fight also. The crowd hissed and booed when the scores were announced. Dallas Jr. unsatisfied with the decision, he walked and paced around the inside of the ring numerous times. A close source revealed to me that most ringside reporters agreed that Dallas Jr. was not having any major problems in the fight, and landed the better punches


Javier Molina (8-0, 4 KO’s) took a six round unanimous decision over Hector Alatorre (16-16, 5 KO’s). The cagey Molina definitely out-gunned Alatorre for the majority of the fight, while Alatorre was landing sporadic and random like punches. All three judges gave it to Molina, with scores of 60-54, 60-54, and 59-55.


The scheduled six round bantamweight bout between Matt Villanueva and Ernie Marquez was ruled a technical draw in the third round when Villanueva (6-0-1, 6 KO’s) landed a "south of the border" shot below Marquez’s trunk line, and Marquez (9-8-2, 3 KO’s) was unable to continue. The bout was called off.


California State Athletic Commission rule book states that when a bout is stopped for an unintentional foul before four rounds are completed, the bout is a technical draw
