Moises Flores Training Hard, Confident of Shocking Rigondeaux

By Reynaldo "El Papi Chulo" Sanchez

An agreement was recently reached for undefeated super bantamweight puncher Moises "Chucky" Flores (25-0, 17 KOs) to challenge WBA champion Guillermo Rigondeaux (17-0, 11 KOs) in June.

The Mexican fighter continues his workouts in Mexico City, and set some time aside to speak with BoxingScene.com/Ringsidefightingnews. The fight with Rigondeaux is slated to take place on June 17th, as part of the undercard to Andre Ward-Sergey Kovalev II at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas - but Flores has yet to receive any confirmation of that date.

"I have read some press reports, where it is stated that I will finally be in Las Vegas to face Rigondeaux. However, my team has not confirmed anything about this and I am waiting for some official notification," Flores said.

Despite having nothing finalized in writing as of yet, the recent reports have motivated Flores to increase his preparation with his coaches.

"The fans will see a new and motivated Moises, we are very excited about this fight and I've dedicated myself with a lot of hunger. That fight with Rigondeaux is the 'fight of my life' and I will be ready to impose my style and my power," Flores said.

"I did almost all my training in Mexico, I felt very good when I came to Namibia in my last fight, and that was thanks to the excellent training camp we did in Mexico."

"Every day that I arrive at the gym, I start with the speed bag and the bags deflate and shake ... (laughs), well, I'm really good. Previously I told you that I'm training here, but results are telling us that I'll be ready to fight fifteen rounds if necessary. The weeks are going fast and I'm anxious, but I keep remembering that it will be a very difficult fight, and I must stay calm."

"A few days ago, I visited the Mexican Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñiguez and it was nice to talk to him about things that give me encouragement. Family and God, must always be present in our lives, not everything is focused on boxing. I think this fight will define both of our careers. Rigondeaux is a world class boxer. And that inspires me to arrive in my best condition. It will be an unforgettable fight and I will return home with that title placed around my waist."

A good fight curious what his strategy will be if he takes the fight to Rigondeaux he may be playing right into his strength but I don't really think he has the power to do damage to him nor out…

I would be impressed if he just brought the fight to Rigo. So many guys get countered, then go into caution mode. You're not going to outbox Rigo, so just pull a Maidana and bring the pressure to the technical…

Not impressed with Flores. Rigo schools him.
