Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York. Flores
will face off against California's Alberto Herrera (8-7-1, 5

said Flores, born and raised in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and
trains in New Haven, Connecticut. "To beat Herrera I will
need to be well prepared."
As an amateur boxer, Flores had a record of 65 victories

Gary Shaw will be very pleased with my performance,"
