Broner-Porter: Flores Off, Waits For New Shumenov Date

By Jake Donovan

A planned cruiserweight bout between Beibut Shumenov and BJ Flores—slated to take place on June 20 in Las Vegas as the chief support to a PBC (Premier Boxing Champions) on NBC event—was scrapped after Shumenov suffered an untimely injury during training camp.

Flores is now apparently off the card altogether—at least in the capacity of a competing fighter—as he will instead wait on a new fight date.

The 36-year old contender was due to appear before the Nevada State Athletic Commission to apply for a license, but the item was scrapped from the commission’s monthly agenda hearing Thursday morning in Las Vegas. Such matters are standard practice in Nevada for fighters 35 years of age and older applying for a license in combat sports.

Flores (31-1-1, 20KO) would have entered his first major title fight (albeit an interim version of the cruiserweight belt) of his 12-year career.

Despite the fight postponement, Flores could still remain involved on the card as he regularly serves as a ringside commentator for the PBC on NBC series.

The headlining bout remains intact, with Adrien Broner facing Shawn Porter at a maximum catchweightg of 144 lbs. The main event airs live in primetime on free-to-air NBC.

That's good... this fight would've put me to sleep like flyweights put Flores to sleep
