David Benavidez and Ronald Ellis WBC super welterweight title eliminator fight headlines March 13th Show Time tripleheader card organised by Premier Boxing Champions promotion.
The opener will mark Abdukakhorov’s (17-0, 9 KO) first fight since leaving Top Rank for Sampson Boxing earlier this year and his first fight period since an August 2019 decision over Luis Collazo. He sits atop the IBF welterweight rankings and had previously indicated that his March bout would be a “keep-busy fight”, so it’s no surprise that he’s taking it easy against Puerto Rico’s Flores (15-2, 13 KO).
Flores did blow up unbeaten Angel Ruiz in 2019, though, so perhaps a smidge of caution is warranted.
The fight is now considered as presumably an untelevised prelim.
