Highlights: Adrien Broner beats John Molina on PBC on NBC

There wasn't a ton of action, but Adrien Broner got the win over John Molina tonight in Las Vegas.

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Adrien Broner didn't put on the show he had promised during fight week, and never came close to stopping John Molina, but "The Problem" improved to 30-1 with a wide 12-round decision win tonight on the PBC on NBC premiere.

Broner, 25, was able to win his third straight fight without much trouble, handing Molina (27-6, 22 KO) his third straight defeat, after 2014 losses to Lucas Matthysse and Humberto Soto. While Molina went to war with Matthysse and was competitive if a bit odd in his approach against Soto, Broner pretty easily handled the brawler tonight, outthrowing and outlanding him significantly, and landing 44% of his total punches.

Molina found a few moments of success with a right hand, but was never really in the fight after the third round. Broner just found it too easy to control the fight from a comfortable distance, and Molina's workrate never threatened Broner or made him turn up his own production.
