June 12, 2012 – Once beaten cruiserweight contender BJ Flores (27-1-1, 17 KOs) has gone public, calling out undefeated Nigerian Lateef “Power” Kayode (18-0-1, 14 KOs) after his fight on Showtime Championship Boxing where he had a draw with five-time world champion, Antonio Tarver (29-6-1, 20 KOs). Flores contacted Gary Shaw Productions last week with his request.
Said John Beninati, matchmaker for Gary Shaw Productions, “Dear BJ, first I want to say that I think you are great for boxing and I am a big fan. However, Lateef Kayode had a draw with the best Cruiserweight on the planet last week in Antonio Tarver. Although we at GSP think you're a good fighter, Lateef Kayode is looking for much bigger fights in the future.”
