Robbie Davies Jr. retained his World Boxing Association (WBA) super lightweight continental belt with a split decision win over American Javier Molina on Saturday at the O2 Arena in London, England. 

The home fighter had a tough night against the American but was able to win via split decision  96-94, 94-97 and 96-94.

Davies knew he had a tough and courageous opponent in front of him, so he had to push himself to the limit and survive moments of drama throughout the 10 rounds to get the job done. 

The 32-year-old veteran won his third fight in a row and made his first defense of the continental belt. He improved his record to 23 wins, 3 losses and 15 knockouts, while Molina’s dropped to 22 wins, 5 setbacks and 9 knockouts.
