Ivan Montiel: Question for Gabriel Flores, Jr... I recently spoke to Jayson Velez who says he wants to make this fight a war. Are you going to make it a war on Saturday? In other words, are you going to do what Velez wants or are you going to simply try to outbox him?
Gabriel Flores (age 20): I will control the pace in the fight, control everything. Whatever I do in the ring is because I want to do it. I am going to be really controlling against Velez, and do whatever I want in that ring. I am going to look like the more experienced fighter in there, I am going to appear to be the one who’s been boxing for many years. In other words, I am not going to fall into his game plan.
Flores and Velez, two super featherweights, will face each other as the ESPN co-feature on Saturday, Feb. 20th.
