Local professional boxer one night away from fighting on big stage

MEDFORD, Ore. – A local professional boxer is fighting on one of the biggest fight cards of the year tomorrow: Canelo Alvarez versus Jermell Charlo.

Ezequiel Flores went through the Phoenix- Talent school district, K- 12.

He began training in boxing and has since picked up four professional victories with three knockouts.

He is currently undefeated.

Tomorrow on September 30th, he faces Curmel Moton a prospect boxer making his professional debut.

Moton also trains with boxing legend, Floyd Mayweather’s team.

But flores says he’s focused on his opponent rather than his opponent’s team.

Flores said, “it don’t matter who you’re with, how much you train or whatever, you know? If you’re a dog, you’re a dog and it’s a fight, anything can happen. Like I said, I’m blessed to be part of this card, big fight, big event and I’m going to take advantage of it, demonstrate that I belong with them too.”

They will square off in the ring at the T- Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The main card fights will start around 8 p-m September 30th.
