Recently being ranked #2 by the IBF, Flores is also ranked by the WBA and WBO. After just defeating knockout artist Darnell Wilson on Friday Night Fights in February, Flores was quickly invited back to ESPN2 to be a guest host, and was also offered another tentative main event fight on Wednesday Night Fights scheduled for May 7th.
With all of this activity BJ Flores still made it a point to call out the former WBO cruiserweight champion Enzo Maccarinelli. Flores has been quoted as saying, "Frank Warren claims that Enzo will not have an easy comeback fight. Well, I am the perfect opponent. I am undefeated. I am ranked by three sanctioning bodies and will legitimize Enzo's comeback, but I understand why they have cold feet."
BJ Flores is currently 21-0 with 13 knockouts as a professional. The three time national amateur champion is also ranked #2 by the IBF, #7 by the WBO, and #11 by the WBA. Adding to these credentials is the fact that BJ is a promotional free agent. Flores is willing to take on any of the cruiserweight champions and/or contenders. With no binding contract with any specific promoter, the Flores camp feels that the talent laden division offers many opportunities for exciting and challenging fights.
Flores discussed his excitement to be the in studio guest on Friday Night Fights. "It's something I have looked forward to my entire boxing career and I am very happy to have the opportunity. I will certainly make the most of it."
