Flores, is one of a number of under-the-radar fighters in the division who is slowly but surely being developed as a potential star. He's smart, good looking and keeps scoring stoppage. This past Thuesday saw him scoring his 10th straight stoppage as he defeated the tough Arron Lyons (12-14-1, 9) with less than a minute of their bout left.
Although Flores didn't look exceptional against Lyons this was the sort of gutcheck that we think Flores needed. He had an opponent who was going to fight back and an opponent wanting to score an upset, as a result Flores got a much needed test and proved his mettle by coming through it. Well done to the matchmakers involved in this one.
