LUCAS MATTYHSSE, Former World Champion
"All fights are important but this one is especially very important for me to win so that I can get back to where I was in the division.
"In my last fight (a points' loss to Unified Super Lightweight Champion Danny Garcia), I thought everything was going my way until I caught an elbow in my right eye. I don't think it was a punch, but it turned the fight around.
"I felt I was dominating, fighting with two eyes, but with one eye he got the momentum. It was disappointing, I thought my career was on the fast track and I gave it 100 percent, but I could not fight like I wanted.
"I don't believe the defeat has derailed me too badly, but I need to win against Molina to show that I am back.
"Molina is a strong, confident fighter who comes forward. In his knockout victory against Mickey Bey, I saw a very hungry fighter. But I didn't really see a whole lot more from him. I have fought and beat much better.''
