floresfightLAS VEGAS / SYDNEY, September 9, 2010 — It was announced Monday afternoon that undefeated and world ranked cruiserweight, BJ Flores will take on Perth’s favorite son Danny “Geen Machine” Green on Wednesday November 17th in Greens’s hometown for the IBO Cruiserweight title.

Flores accepted the challenge and is more than ready to travel down under to face Green for that championship.

Green and Flores kicked off a press tour today that started in Sydney and will continue to Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane over the next five day for the bout that will undoubtedly be the biggest fight of Flores’ career.

“This feels like Christmas has come a little early this year”, said Flores. 

“I have finally gotten the fight he has been craving

 Flores called out Green over a year ago and feels that Green’s first round stoppage over Paul Briggs was the main reason Green has decided to step up and face a real guy.

“I am looking forward to finally getting an opportunity to face a top fighter and a two- time world champion in Danny Green. I take my hat off to Danny for deciding to fight me.   This is a fight I have wanted for a LONG time.  I hope I am the underdog.  I hope everyone picks against me so when I completely destroy him on November 17th and then I will get more opportunities to face top fighters. This will be a life changing fight for me.  This will be my coming out party”

“Life is all about timing and sometimes things don’t happen on my time.  However, my BIG moment has finally arrived.  I have been in the gym with nothing but heavyweights for the last year.  I have improved my strength and explosive power 10 times!  This will be much different than fighting Manny Siaca or Paul Briggs.  Danny will find out VERY early in the fight that 25lbs is a BIG difference. This will also be the most difficult opponent of my career and I am Very excited to get this opportunity. I would not have taken this fight in his hometown if I wasn’t sure I could knock him out!”

“The Fans in Australia deserve better than Siaca and Briggs.  They can finally watch Green in a real fight with a guy who is bigger stronger and faster than him.  I know he has a lot of momentum going for him as he won a few fights and I’m sure because of what he did to Roy Jones, him and his fans think that he is invincible, but on November 17, those fans will see and more importantly Danny will feel what it is like to be in with a younger, hungry fighter who is eager to show the fans all over the world that I am one of the best cruiserweights in the world.”
