BJ Flores Destroys David McNemar in Two Rounds

If BJ Flores (28-1-1, 18KOs) wanted to make a statement tonight....mission accomplished.  Flores showed lightning spped and explosive power in an absolute anihilation of 13-1 cruiserweight contender David McNemar.  Flores defended his NABO belt and added the NABA championship strap to his collection. Flores seemed to hurt McNemar every time he touched him and there were a total of three knockdowns in the fight. 

In the first round both fighters came out with Flores coming forward with power. Flores used the jab to the head and the body to set up a couple of big right hands throughout the round that visibly shook McNemar.  Flores' hand speed was very impressive and he used an assortment of body/head attacks to have McNemar on his heels.
 
In the second, Flores once again came out aggressive behind a solid defense and numbing jab that had McNemar looking for answers.  About halfway though the round Flores landed a hard left uppercut to the body that dropped Mcnemar to a knee.  McNemar got up at the count of seven but then he was once again hammered with a hard overhand right that put him down for a second time.  McNemar beat the count, but Flores went in for the kill with digging hard body shots and landed one final right hand that put McNemar down for a third time - and that prompted referee Mike England to stop the contest. Flores was declared the winner by TKO at 2:14 of the second.

If anything, Flores showed improved power and speed.  His jab was very sharp and his body/head attack was very intelligent and effective.  The power in the right hand was obvious as last year McNemar lost a close twelve round decision with #5 world rated Ryan Coyne, while Flores dominated him. 

Flores said - "I was excited to fight in front of my hometown fans.  I know I need to get better and keep improving if I want to fight against the best and tonight was just another small step in that direction.  I feel fine and ready to move forward.  I have to dominate guys like this if I am to challenge for a world title.  I want to continue to prove myself to the public and to my fans."

I've seen Flores beg for a title shot. Called Kayote out on several occasions. This guy will fight anyone anytime and isn't afraid to say it! If he was a bum or chump why would Mayweather have him in his…

I bet BJ feels real good about himself beating up another bum. Every time he steps up he'll lose...he should stick to commentating.
