World Ranked Cruiserweight, BJ Flores wants to make a
statement and he has pinpointed the man that will not only
make a fan friendly fight with, but be a fight of
Fresh off his 5th round TKO victory of highly rated Nick
Iannuzz on July 23rd, Flores wants world rated and
undefeated cruiserweight Lateef Kayode next. Flores has a
date in Springfield, Missouri in October and is more than
willing to bring in the highly rated rugged Nigerian as his
Flores is 25-1 with sixteen knockouts.
Kayode, 17-0 with fourteen knockouts is ranked Number one by
the WBA; Number three by the WBO; number four the WBC; and
Number five by the IBF.
"I wanted Kaydoe after the fight he had with Iannuzzi. For
whatever reason, they went in another direction. Now I have
another date in Springfield, Missouri at the end of October
and Lateef is on the top of my list! I contacted his
promoter today and still waiting for a response. I want to
clear up any confusion about who the top US cruiserweight
contender is. This is a new phase in my career”, said Flores
"We had a wonderful turnout at the O’Rielly Center and had
over 2100 people at the event! The guys at the O’Rielly are
very excited to do another show as are we! I will be
fighting here every 3 months until I get a shot at a title!
If Lateef Kayode will take the fight then he will be the
next victim. If not that, I will fight another highly rated
“Kayode is rated higher than me and I'm willing to prove in
the ring that I can beat him. It’s nothing personal but he
has something I want and that’s a number-one ranking by the
WBA and top five rating by all three other sanctioning
bodies. He stands in my way of returning to a title fight
and I want to set the record straight that I will fight any
cruiserweight that is in my way of a title shot"!
