Beibut Shumenov – Boxer: The 6’2″ Kazakhstan born fighter is a textbook boxer/puncher with big-time right hand power. The physically imposing Shumenov, 31, is fast, durable, sound technically and a good bodypuncher. The Vegas based fighter has excellent stamina, a solid chin and is very aggressive. Defensively, Shumenov tucks his chin tight and picks off punches well with his gloves but lacks head movement. At times Shumenov can get wild and is not much of a counterpuncher.  Beibut Shumenov vs BJ Flores Odds have Shumenov -170 at BOVADA

B.J. Flores – Boxer: The 6’2″ Arizona based fighter is an intelligent boxer/puncher with good athleticism. Despite his bodybuilders physique, Flores is only an average puncher that relies more on speed, timing and conditioning. Flores is fundamentally sound defensively but is somewhat stiff without much head movement. Flores has shown a good chin throughout his career but Shumenov will be the hardest puncher he has faced. At 36-years old Flores could be a touch past his prime and is relatively untested despite being a 12-year pro.
