Cruiserweight contender BJ Flores (28-1) has informed BoxingScene.com that Don King has released him from his promotional contract. Flores said that the split was cordial.

"(We are on) very, very, amicable terms. Don King is a man of his word and did what he said he would in the beginning (when I signed with him).  He told me 'BJ if I can't get you the big fights, I will give you your contract back.'  That's exactly what he did.  Very professional," Flores told BoxingScene.com. 

There is speculation that Flores, who is ranked #2 by the WBO, might be involved in the next Million Dollar Tournament in Monaco.

The first "Million Dollar Tournament" concluded in July when highly rated super middleweight contender Edwin Rodriguez knocked out Denis Grachev in the first round of their finals matchup.

In addition to Flores, Ola Afolabi (19-3), Brad "Hollywood" Pitt (14-0) and Junior Makabu (14-1) have been mentioned. As possible participants to round out the field of the four man, single elimination cruiserweight tournament.

Mcabu jus beat undefeated 21-0 and #2 world rated demtryo kucher. Mcabu is very good and Pitt is 14-0 (12kos) and former Olympian from austrailia. Afolobi is very good also. This will be a great tournament and huge opportunity for all fighters involved.

Honestly.... I only know Ola's name and Brad Pitt's name.... and I only know him because his name popped up on NSB one day and I boxrec'd him... don't know how good he is. Hope they have Ola and Flores on the opposite draw
