Tony Bellew vs BJ Flores

BY KID HERSH

From Echo Arena in Liverpool, United Kingdom, came Fight Night on Sky Sports.  Main event was Tony Bellew (27-2-1, 17KO's) vs BJ Flores (32-2-1, 20KO's) for Bellews WBC World Cruiserweight title.  In the first round both fighters were very tense.  Flores landed some good punches such as the right hand about two minutes into the round but nothing did damage to Bellew, who looked uber confident and loose.  Bellew got tagged with another right hand early into the second round but then the round belonged to the Bomber as he knocked down Flores three times before the end of the round.  The first knockdown came midway through the round when Flores was far too concerned with complaining to the referee about a low blow and got caught when Bellew pressed the opening he was given.  Flores got up only to go down again shortly after from a left hook behind the ear.  Then Bellew went crazy with ten seconds left and scored another knockdown before the bell from a right hand through the guard.  In the third round Bellew went back to boxing but then hurt Flores with a right hand that backed him up.  It was hard to see but the shot stunned Flores a bit and Bellew pressed the advantage and scored the knockout blow from a right hand to the body and a left to the chin.  Flores tried to get up but didn't quite make the count and the referee stopped the fight.  Immediately afterwards Tony went on his usual emotional tirade and even got out of the ring to confront David Haye.  That was not the end of the David Haye tirade though, as Tony again had a nice long rant for Haye for his post fight speech and continued calling him out for his "spongebob hair style" LOL
