October 25, 2012 – The new acquisition of “Gary Shaw Productions”, power puncher, Javier “el Chino” Flores (7-0, 7 KOs), will be in action this Saturday, October 27th on the undercard at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, New York. Flores will face off against California’s Alberto Herrera (8-7-1, 5 KOs) in a non-televised bout scheduled for 8 rounds in the welterweight division.
“I have sacrificed myself like never before for this fight,” said Flores, born and raised in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico and trains in New Haven, Connecticut. “To beat Herrera I will need to be well prepared.”
As an amateur boxer, Flores had a record of 65 victories with 38 coming by way of knockout, and only 3 defeats.
Flores, who is a southpaw, is confident in the results he has obtained with his new trainer John Scully.
“We have seen great improvement in my speed and punching power. I have felt more electric and confident in sparring, and we believe that after this great victory, the fans and Gary Shaw will be very pleased with my performance,” commented Flores.
Herrera has gone the distance with various undefeated prospects, and recently (June) lost in the seventh round against Thomas Dulorme (16-0, 12 KOs) when he was unwilling to come out of his corner (RTD).
