Tomas Molinares (born April 6, 1965 in Cartagena, Colombia) is a Colombian retired boxer and former WBA welterweight champion of the world. He is remembered mostly for his fight with Marlon Starling and the controversial way in which it ended. Behind on the scorecards, Molinares launched a punch that knocked Starling out, but the punch seemingly landed just after the bell to end round six rang. Viewings of the fight's video, both by officials during a WBA inquest right after the bout and on YouTube showings, prove and have proven inconclusive as far as whether Molinares threw the punch in time or not.Tomas Molinares debuted as a professional boxer on October 26, 1984, when he faced 0–1–1 Arnovis Castro at the Bernardo Caraballo Coliseum in Cartagena, winning by decision. On March 1, 1985, Molinares faced the much more experienced Cristobal Torres, who had accumulated a record of 11 wins, 10 losses and 4 draws (ties) in 25 bouts, compared to Molinares' 1–0. He stopped Torres to score his first knockout win as a professional boxer. Wins over Eliseo Benitez and Mateo Valdes followed, and Molinares then challenged for the Colombian national Welterweight title, which was vacant at the time. Molinares fought 3–6–1 Simon Ramos on June 21, 1985 in Cartagena, winning the national championship by knockout.
