Miguel Flores-Ryan Kielczweski Tops PBC on ESPN, August 12

VERONA, NY - Undefeated rising contender Miguel Flores (20-0, 9 KOs) takes on exciting once-beaten featherweight contender Ryan Kielczweski (25-1, 7 KOs) in the 10-round main event of Premier Boxing Champions on ESPN and ESPN Deportes Friday, August 12 from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, New York.
 
Televised coverage begins at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT and features a welterweight showdown between unbeaten contender Bryant Perrella (14-0, 13 KOs) and Cuban Olympian Yordenis Ugas (15-3, 7 KOs) in 10-rounds of action.
 
"Fighting on ESPN is incredible because you know that fans from all around the world will be tuning in," said Flores. "My opponent is a very skilled fighter, so I'll be at my best when we step in the ring on August 12. Expect me to go to war and bring a lot of action to those who will be watching."

"It's always exciting to be fighting on ESPN, especially in the main event," said Kielczweski. "Training is going well and I've been traveling around to get great sparring. I don't know much about Flores other than that he's undefeated for a reason. If I perform on August 12 hopefully something big will come next that leads me towards a title. It's going to be an exciting night and an electric fight."
 
Tickets for the live event, which is promoted by King's Promotions, are priced at $60 for ringside, $35 and $25, and are on sale now (may be subject to additional fees). Tickets can be purchased through Ticketmaster, by calling 877-833-SHOW or by visiting the Turning Stone Box Office.
 
An undefeated fighter from Michoacan, Mexico, but fighting out of Houston, Flores has not lost since turning pro in 2009 at just 17-years-old. The 23-year-old had a big 2015 beginning in May with a victory over German Meraz and followed up by wins against Juan Ruiz, Carlos Padilla and Alfred Tetteh. He started 2016 with a headlining win over Mario Briones at The Dancehall in January and dominated Ruben Tamayo over 10 rounds in May. Now he will face the toughest test of his career in his east coast debut.
 
A runner-up in the 2008 National Golden Glove tournament, the 26-year-old Kielczweski looks to work his fourth-straight victory on August 12. Born and raised in Quincy, MA., he bounced back from his first defeat to deliver a first round knockout over Anthony Napunyi in May 2015 and followed that up with a victory over veteran contender Rafael Vazquez in October of last year. Most recently, he dominated Mario Macias in an April bout.
 
Fresh off of a second round stoppage over previously unbeaten David Grayton in PBC on ESPN action in June, the 27-year-old Perrella looks to take down another quality opponent when he enters the ring on August 12. Fighting out of Fort Meyers, Florida, the welterweight, who has trained with world champion Keith Thurman, enters this fight on an 11-bout streak of stopping his opponents inside of the distance.
                                                                                        
A sensational Cuban amateur, Ugas picked up a Bronze medal at the 2008 Olympics and also owns Gold medals from the 2005 World Amateur Championships and 2007 Pan American Games. Now fighting out of Miami, the 29-year-old owns victories over Cosme Rivera, Kenny Abril and Adan Hernandez.
 
The host of this exciting event of champions, Turning Stone Resort Casino is known as a venue for some of the best action-packed boxing events.  In fact, boxing legend Mike Tyson selected Turning Stone Resort as the venue for his world debut as a promoter, Mohammad Ali's daughter Laila Ali made her boxing debut at Turning Stone, Floyd Mayweather Jr. promoted his televised fight card at the Upstate New York resort, and just last year, Turning Stone landed the epic battle between Ruslan Provodnikov and Lucas Matthysse, a "fight of the year" contender, over arenas in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Miami.  The August 12th fight will mark Turning Stone's 19th nationally-televised boxing event, cementing the resort as a destination for legendary knockout fights.  Located in Upstate New York, Turning Stone is an award-winning destination resort, offering world-class amenities including four hotels, 21 restaurants and dining options, two luxurious spas, 120,000 square foot Las Vegas style gaming floor, five beautiful golf courses, and several bars, cocktail lounges and nightlife venues.
