ONTARIO-It was work as usual for Efrain Esquivias despite missing his famed trainer and a demolition job for Riverside’s Artemio Reyes Jr. on Friday.

Esquivias (13-0, 9 KOs) was missing trainer Freddie Roach who is in the Philippines with Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan, but the ace trainer wasn’t needed as the Carson boxer beat up Colombia’s Jhon Molina (27-16-3, 18 KOs) before a sold out crowd at the Doubletree Hotel.

“I do all the work when he’s there and I spar with some of the best fighters in the world at Wild Card so I’m ready for anyone,” said Esquivias whose original opponent pulled out just last weekend.

Molina used his veteran experience to avoid some of the big blows in the opening round. Esquivias used his timing and speed to slip into another gear that Molina just couldn’t follow.

“He’s a veteran with a lot of experience so I knew I had use my youth and speed to beat him,” said Esquivias who was rarely hit.

A four punch combination to the body and head sent Molina to the floor for good at 1:35 of round three. Referee Jose Cobian stopped the fight.
