SPRINGFIELD, MO (October 17, 2012)–On Friday night October 6th, Number-one WBO world rated cruiserweight and NABA, NABO and WBC continental Americas champ BJ Flores (28-1-1, 18 KO’s) scored another knockout victory when he stopped once-beaten David McNemar in front of a packed house at the Shrine Mosque in Springfield, Missouri.
Flores has now set his sights on highly regarded WBO champion Marco Huck of Germany.
“He is the champion and I am WBO #1 challenger. It’s no secret this is a fight I have wanted for a very long time,” said Flores
Over the last fourteen months, Flores has fought four times and looked very good in those outings. Flores has shown good power by knocking out 3 of his last 4 opponents and scoring multiple knockdowns in those fights. Flores says, “I know I needed to get better and improve. In order to be successful in this game you have to stay active and stay busy. Unfortunately this was something that I wasn’t able to accomplish before but now with the hometown crowd and fan base we can do shows in Springfield and keep me active and busy.”
