Miguel, a former senior at Sam Houston (Houston, Texas), grew up in the gym watching his brother train. He could sense the respect others had for Ben’s dedication to boxing, and Miguel soon craved exactly the same thing. His older brother, Benjamin Flores, was a former Super Bantamweight boxer. The younger Flores traveled the country for tournaments and he won Ringside World Championships in 2006 and 2008. He reportedly had about 100 amateur bouts.
Come and Train with me because…..
Miguel’s first professional fight came 101 days after his brother died. It lasted 31 seconds. He knocked out his next two opponents in a similar fashion. He was challenged once for the WBA super featherweight title in November 2019.
