JOHN MOLINA drastically failed to make weight as he attempts to challenge Terence Crawford. The latter is the unified WBC and WBO super-lightweight world champion but Molina, who boxes him at the Century Link Center in Omaha, Nebraska, came in four pounds over the limit at 144lbs.

Crawford scaled 139 1/2lbs.

At the second attempt Molina came in at 143 1/2lbs. Their fight will still go ahead but the titles are not available to Molina, in the unlikely event that he wins.

Ray Beltran (133 1/4lbs) boxes Mason Menard (134 1/4lbs) on the undercard and Sean Mongahan (179 1/4lbs) will also be in action against Fernando Castanada (177 3/4lbs).
