Carlos "Caballo Bronco" Adames

At the age of 23, Carlos is a two-year pro. A sensational prospect at 147 pounds, he was an amateur standout at the elite international level before his debut.

He recently signed a promotional contract with Top Rank.

As a pro, Carlos has several impressive wins against veterans with much more experience, including 2000 and 2004 Venezuelan Olympian Patrick Lopez (TKO4), who was 23-6 at the time in April, 2016, and 2004 Venezuelan Olympian Jean Carlos Prada (TKO2), who was 31-2-1 at the time in February, 2017.

But none were more impressive than his near-shutout 11-round unanimous decision win against former IBF junior middleweight world champion Carlos Molina on July 26, 2017, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Boxingscene.com’s Elisinio Castillo reported [excerpts]: Carlos Adames picked up the biggest victory of his career with a dominant performance over Carlos Molina, who offered a good performance, but not good enough to overcome the rising slugger.

The event was staged at Hotel Jaragua in Santo Domingo, with Adames retaining the WBA Fedelatín welterweight title for the third time with scores of 110-98, 109-99 and 110-98. The contest was set for 11 rounds because of the Fedelatin title rules under the World Boxing Association.

Molina looked good in the first round, but Adames started letting those hands go in the second and scored a knockdown with an uppercut, hook combination. He was able to change the tempo of the fight from that point forward to control the contest.

Molina had a very good run in the junior middleweight division with victories over former world champions like Cory Spinks, Kermit Cintron and Ishe Smith, and draws against Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Erislandy Lara. Molina was ranked among the best in the division.

Adames will see a significant increase based on this win. [End Castillo item]
