Carlos Molina arrested, Charlo fight in jeopardy

IBF light middleweight champion Carlo Molina was supposed to defend his title against undefeated Jermall Charlo Saturday night at the MGM Grand on the Canelo-Angulo undercard but the fight is now in jeopardy. Molina was arrested in Las Vegas and remains in jail just two days before the fight and one day before the weigh-in. Molina had a warrant out for his arrest in the state of Wisconsin for failing to register as a sex offender after being charged with statutory rape back in 2001. Molina was 18 and at the time and the girl was 15 or 16 when the charges were pressed. As of Thursday morning the issue with the state was cleared up as he was able to post bail however now there appears to be an immigration problem. His team is trying their best to get him out. As of right now Molina remains in custody and the fight is in serious danger of not happening.
