Former interim title challenger BJ Flores is in Miami this week, as he will be in the corner of popular YouTube star-turned debuting boxer Jake Paul ahead of his grudge match vs. Ali Eson Gib. Paul vs. Gib will take place on DAZN later tonight, as a chief undercard attraction to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade’s title defense vs. Irishman Luke Keeler.
But I was actually more interested in Flores’ take on the looming rematch between WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder and former lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury. The two giants face off for a second time on February 22 in Las Vegas, with everyone’s memory of their split-draw verdict from December 2018 still lingering.
