Molitor set for return!

A reenergized former IBF junior featherweight world champion, “The Canadian Kid” Steve Molitor (28-1, 11 KOs) will face fellow leading contender Heriberto Ruiz (41-7-2, 23 KOs) in the main event of a stacked Rumble at Rama VIII card, June 26th at Casino Rama, in Rama, Ontario. This will be Molitor’s first fight since losing his world title last November to Celestine Caballero. “Ruiz is a tough guy, who has proven himself in the past, and is coming to win,” Molitor said at a press conference Monday in Toronto. “But this is my chance to show my fans and the rest of the boxing world that I’m ready to return to where I was before the Caballero fight.” Molitor’s fight with Ruiz, which is an eliminator for the IBF’s #2 ranking, also marks the first time the former world champion will step between the ropes with his new trainer, Billy Martin. In the co-feature, Canadian heavyweight champion Greg “The Steel Pole” Kielsa (9-0, 4 KOs) steps into the ring in a non-title match-up against American Byron Lee Polley (23-9-1, 11 KOs). Also featured will be highly touted junior middleweight prospect Austin Trout (17-0, 13 KOs) going up against Shawn Garnett (11-5-2, 3 KOs).
