Mexican banger Moises Flores (25-0, 17KOs) is hoping to get his hand on WBA super bantamweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux of Cuba
Flores, who is currently the mandatory challenger to the title, retained his WBA-interim/IBO belts last Friday when he traveled over to Namibia and dominated hometown hero Paulus Ambunda over twelve rounds.
Rigondeaux is scheduled to make a defense of his title against unbeaten British contender James 'Jazza' Dickens on July 16th in England. The winner of that contest has been ordered by the World Boxing Association to fight Flores in a mandatory bout.
Flores is mentally focused on getting Rigondeaux, but has no issues with fighting Dickens if the British boxer is somehow able to defy the odds and pull off an upset on home soil. Dickens is a long underdog in the contest with Ridgondeux being the first opponent that he's faced at world level.
"I'm supposed to go straight to the winner of the fight between Rigondeaux and Dickens. Now [Rigondeaux] has to do his part that I already did mine, and there is no turning back. I'm going against the winner and I will go in there with everything, so whether it's the Cuban or the Englishman - my next goal is to become the super championship by fighting either of the two," Flores said to ESPN Deportes.
"The fight is secured because it is what the WBA ordered. I imagine that the fight will be with Rigondeaux, but I can't say that for sure just yet because maybe Dickens can pull off an upset. There are possibilities on how that fight can go, but the fact remains that both are aware that the winner has to go against me. I hope it is Rigondeaux [who I fight next], but I don't want to take away the chances of his opponent."
