“It’s an amazing feeling to be in this main event, and it has motivated even more than ever to have this opportunity,” said Flores. “I am always in shape and ready to get into the ring. I promise a great show in San Antonio, and I can’t wait to fight in front of the great boxing fans there.”

“I am thankful for this opportunity, and I hope that my opponent is taking me very seriously,” said Briones. “This is going to be the hardest fight he’s ever been in. I’ve trained to go the distance, but we will be looking for a big knockout on January 12.”
