Miguel Flores Talks Saturday’s Featherweight Fights – Featherweight prospect Miguel Flores will be watching Saturday’s Leo Santa Cruz vs Chris Avalos world title fight with keen interest.
Avalos earned the shot at Santa Cruz and his WBA “Super World” featherweight title on the strength of a “w” this past July against Flores. In that fight, Flores appeared to be on his way to victory when he suffered several cuts that led to a technical decision win for Avalos.
In this latest TBC interview, we catch up with Miguel Flores as we enter fight week for Santa Cruz vs Avalos. Flores had been lobbying for a rematch with Avalos when news of Avalos vs Santa Cruz broke and it is safe to say Flores went through the whole gamut of emotions when he heard the news. Now, with the fight practically on top of us, Flores is taking a much more business-like approach to the fight as he knows his career will be affected by Saturday’s outcome. Do not miss what Flores had to say right here at TBC.
The Santa Cruz vs. Avalos fight is one of the co-features of this Saturday’s Premier Boxing Champions broadcast scheduled to air on FOX. Check your local listings for start times.
