Duva Boxing sends an important battle in the cruiserweight ranks into the ring this week and a national television audience will be watching on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights when the sensational knockout artist Darnell “Ding A Ling” Wilson puts his USBA Cruiserweight championship on the line against undefeated up and comer B.J. Flores this Friday night, February 8, at Dover Downs Racetrack and Casino. Dino Duva’s promotional company will present the title tilt in association with Sal Musemeci's Final Forum Promotions..
The unsung cruiserweight division is fast becoming one of the most exciting in the boxing ranks. Along with the ESPN 2 telecast of Wilson-Flores, Showtime will broadcast the unification bout featuring WBO kingping Enzo Maccinerelli vs. WBC titlist David Haye on March 8 in London.
Back to Ding A Ling vs. Flores. The victor will be declared the # 2 ranked contender in the IBF to belt holder Steve Cunningham, but Duva says “more importantly, the winner of this match will be the hottest contender in all of boxing, and an exciting and talked about fighter among boxing’s elite.”"
"I'm rearing to go and ready to handle my business this Friday on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights,” says the Ding A Ling Man. “I am going to be in the ring with yet another tough opponent in BJ Flores. I will win rounds with effective punching and will impress in victory. I feel super strong and am ready to go 12 rounds but I am a knockout artist and I don't get paid for overtime. I'm longing for my world title opportunity, just looking for my shot."
"I'm way too strong for Flores,” adds Wilson. “He is strong but I have that killer mentality. I will take hits just to hit him. I am a hungry fighter who wants to fight and doesn't mind getting hit to get the job done.”
Wilson, known best by the popular nickname "Ding-A-Ling Man," comes off a sensational 11 TH round KO victory over Emmanuel Nwodo on June 29 from the St. George Theater in Staten Island which aired on ESPN2. The spectacular triumph was crowned "Knockout of the Year" by ESPN.com's respected expert Dan Rafael.
