  • Tony Weaks is the worst way to shot of a stoppage again from Tony he waved it off before he hit the ground he got right up I used to respect him as a great referee but this again was terrible very disappointed

  • Lol Flores says he was ‘playing with his food’. What , while he was punching you in the face with right hands? He’s there to be hit people , watch out

  • Flores is an over hyped fighter that will be badly exposed by Valdez or Stevenson.

    He’s way too full of himself watching him do that stupid playing with food imitation after the fight after beating a Valdez leftover in Velez.
