Topics: From the Wires,

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Amir Khan stopped Carlos Molina after 10 rounds Saturday night, beginning the British ex-champion’s comeback from consecutive losses with a lopsided victory.

Khan (27-3, 19 KOs) used superior speed and power to batter the overmatched Molina in every round. Molina began bleeding from his face in the middle rounds, and referee Jack Reiss stopped the bout on the advice of Molina’s corner before the 11th.

Khan celebrated with new trainer Virgil Hunter, who replaced Freddie Roach in Khan’s corner after losses to Lamont Peterson and Danny Garcia, who stopped the former 140-pound titleholder in July.

Middleweight Alfredo Angulo also earned a unanimous decision over Jorge Silva at the Los Angeles Sports Arena, and heavyweight Deontay Wilder knocked out his 26th consecutive opponent, stopping Kelvin Price in the third round.
