"I am ecstatic about bringing big fights to the Ozarks and giving the people in this area very entertaining matches! The people in this area are very supportive of their local athletes and very passionate about their sports! 7 MMA fights and 4 professional boxing matches! You have the best of both worlds!! With partners Jacob Chavez and Wes Slay working behind the scenes, it allows me to fully focus on my training and be prepared to give the fight of my life on July 23!! It’s going to be exciting" Tickets go on sale this Friday!!”
Flores, who is coming off his only professional defeat when he traveled all the way to Australia and lost to hometown hero Danny Green is eager to turn that experience into a positive.
“I’m using that experience and that motivation on just coming up short on a world title fight as a positive on my next fight. Either way I still feel like I landed the more damaging punches. I was never hurt or buzzed and pressed the action the entire time. He fought smart. Now I will move on.”
“Ianuzzi will find it very difficult to stay with me for 10 rounds when I come in at the full 200 pound limit. I am looking forward to making a statement by knocking him out after #1 WBA world rated ; #3 WBO and #3 WBC contender Lateef Kayode was barely able to squeak past him. This will be a great fight right after my fight in Australia! Iannuzzi is a legitimate opponent and I am ready for a strong performance on July 23rd.
"I will be fighting regularly in Springfield Missouri now that we have a deal in place at the O’Riley Center and that holds almost 4,000 fans. These people in the Midwest are very supportive and passionate about their local athletes! I am looking forward to giving them a spectacular knockout in a fight that will put me right back towards the top of the world ratings!!
"Plus the fan will get their monies worth with seven MMA fights and four boxing fights and we are trying to build a brand here in Springfield with pleasing all fans of combat sports."
