Canelo vs Angulo: Molina-Charlo fight officially off, Alvarez-Thompson moves to PPV

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Carlos Molina has further troubles at hand, and he's out of tomorrow night's fight with Jermall Charlo.

Ricardo Alvarez and Sergio Thompson will lead off tomorrow night's Showtime pay-per-view event, as Carlos Molina is officially out of his scheduled IBF junior middleweight title defense against Jermall Charlo.

Molina was arrested and detained on old warrants from Wisconsin earlier this week, and is now being detained by ICE as there is question as to whether or not he's actually a legal citizen of the United States. The 30-year-old fighter, born in Mexico, has an outstanding warrant for a disorderly conduct charge, but the real concern is his failing to register as a sex offender after pleading no contest to second degree sexual assault of a child in 2002.

Charlo (17-0, 13 KO) does lose his opportunity to win a world title for the first time, but he'll still be paid his $100,000 purse, which is a good move. He did his part and was ready to fight, and had absolutely no control over this situation.
