Flores usually would have been headlining or co main event especially in his hometown. He got cocky. Let’s see if it wakes him up.
I don’t think Flores is going anywhere, but I could be wrong and I’m happy they chose not to give up on him after…. absolutely throwing him to the wolves.
Don’t understand all the booing by the crowd. Have they ever seen a masterful boxer before? Moloney fought a great fight. Congratulations champ on an excellent performance.
