Prediction,

Good test for Cissokho, seems like a good fighter, 6-0, not a lot of experience, but so far, so good, and he has plenty of amateur experience behind him, he seems to be a bit of a puncher, 26, so at that point when he should be stepping up in competition, but not behind schedule for a fighter with a lot of amateur experience and pedigree. Cissokho was a great amateur, 2016 Olympian, got a Bronze medal, defeated Josh Kelly, Balazs Bacskai. It is good for Cissokho that he has been 10 rounds already, and is staying active, and in this fight, he is fighting quite a big name, it isn't a step too far for a fighter of 6-0, because Carlos Molina is far past his prime, 35, has 9 losses now, but he is still fighting a guy with world level experience, a veteran, and a fighter who will still try his absolute best, so it is a test he hasn't faced in his first 6 fights.

Carlos Molina, now, is probably a stepping stone, let's be honest, but there are worse things to be in boxing than a stepping-stone, you can punish opponents for underestimating you and writing you off, you get work, you benefit financially, so I think in boxing, to be considered a stepping-stone, not so bad. Carlos Molina, in his prime, in 2010-2013, was very good, he was a real world class fighter, beat Kermit Cintron, Cory Spinks, Ishe Smith, even drew with Erislandy Lara, he won the IBF world title at 154 against Smith in 2013, and I that, really, was the best he had in him, and from then on, he started to decline, he lost to Cornelius Bundrage, looked bad, won 6 fights after that, to his credit, but at a level which was a leap down from the opposition he had been fighting, most of them were 8 rounders. After his low key win streak, Molina fought 3 times, against unbeaten prospects, Carlos Adames, Josh Kelly, and European level fighter, Ahmed El Mousaoui, he lost all 3 of them. Molina is only getting poorer, but he has still never been stopped, in his last fight, he was very well beaten, but he was not stopped, he did not go down. I don't think Molina is so far over the hill that it makes you sad to see him fight.

The only thing Molina has on his side in this fight is experience, he is not bigger than Cissokho, he is nearly a decade older, he isn't a puncher, which is always a blow because power is the one thing that an old fighter can really keep through the years. Cissokho is the puncher in this fight, he has the amateur pedigree, and he seems to be a fighter with real potential, so his only weakness in this fight, I think is the fact that he has only had 6 fights, whilst his opponent has had 39. Molina has proved to be a long distance fighter in the past, he has a very good engine, but as he ages, his stamina will decrease, and his recovery rate will be slower, he won't be able to get stuck in and throw as many punches as he used to, and in this fight, his young, dangerous opponent has not only been 10 rounds, but won them all when he boxed for that long, first is the worst, so it will be highly unlikely that Cissokho will tire after a few rounds, because for the younger, fresher fighter to tire from the general pace and distance, the older opponent needs the young fighter to have stamina issues, or to be unfamiliar with the territory, and Molina won't have that weakness to target.

If Cissokho wins this by wide UD, great, just like Kelly, Adames, it is a good win, but, if he struggles, loses any more than 3 rounds, you'd probably question how good he is, and wonder if he will be successful at a certain high level, but never world level. If Cissokho stops Molina, that is some statement, a massive statement, he would be the first to do it. My prediction is Cissokho by UD, at least 98-92, maybe wider, a possible shutout, a good win, good performance, and a good learning fight for the French fighter.
