The explosive Kirkland (30-1, 27 KOs), from Austin, Tex., has re-established himself as a force in the 154-pound division since the southpaw reunited with trainer Ann Wolfe and subsequently stopped Alfredo “Perro” Angulo in a thrilling six-round war in November. - mayweather vs cotto

Meanwhile, the much-avoided Molina (19-4-2, 6 KOs) is coming off an impressive three-bout stretch in 2011 that includes a dominant ten-round unanimous decision over Kermit Cintron, a seventh-round TKO of Allen Conyers, and a controversial draw against Erislandy Lara that many thought he had won.

But James has two big factors that could work against him: His chin, which just isn't great. Nobuhiro Ishida can't punch, either. And his stamina. Make no mistake, Kirkland was gassed by the time the referee saved Alfredo Angulo from an uglier ending. And James hasn't had to go deep against a guy who still has legs in a long time. Molina has shown an ability to stay active over 10 rounds twice this year, and that came after a two-year layoff. If Molina can survive an early rush from Kirkland, stamina could be a huge factor.
