The 30-year-old Mollo’s most notable victories to date have been against former Olympians, Mike Tyson-conqueror and former Irish heavyweight champion Kevin McBride (TKO2), and Canadian Art Binkowski. Mollo has also extended multiple world title challengers Andrew Golota and Jameel McCline the full 12-round distances, respectively, in their WBA Fedelatin and WBC Eliminator fights.
“We’re excited to add Mike Mollo to our growing Boxing 360 stable of world-class fighters,” Director of Boxing Operations Bob Duffy said. “Mike has been training with Pete Brodsky for the past few months and he looks like an entirely different fighter. Mike gives people what they want – knockouts – but he’s becoming a much more complete fighter. He is a popular Italian-American fighter with a lot of upside. The heavyweight division is wide open right now and we’re expecting big things from Mike.”
Molllo’s Boxing 360 debut, as well as his first fight since November, 2008, is scheduled for March 26 against veteran Billy Zumbrun (23-11-1) at UIC Pavilion in Chicago.
“Boxing 360 is a new company that offered me a contract that was exactly the same deal I was looking for to get back in business,” Mollos said from his Palm Beach training camp. “They want to move me right and keep me busy. That’s what I want. Everything made sense for me to sign with Boxing 360 and make my comeback. I wasn’t handled well in the past and I made some bad decisions. Now, I have en entirely new team from top to bottom. I’m going to get a few wins and be right back in the heavyweight picture.
“I can’t wait to get back in the ring March 26th and it’s always great fighting at home. I know there’s going to be a packed house there rooting for me.”
