Stop the hate. Flores is a smart boxer and will probably beat this dude. With that said, I don't see him out-boxing Afolabi over the distance. As for Huck, I think sooner or later Marco lands one of his right…

I like BJ Flores, I met him at Jirov's last fight. But I would have liked to seen him more active. But I wish him luck with this fight. Too bad he has to go all the way to Albania.

BJ reminds me of Dimitri Salita.
