Springfield Boys And Girls Club And The Care To Learn Foundation.

Flores Will Be Back In Action On January 28Th At The Shrine Mosque, Where He Defends His NABO North American Title And Also Fights For The Vacant NABF Title That Will Give Flores Sole Control Of All 4 North American Belts And Move Him One Step Closer To The Coveted World Title Shot. This Will Be Flores’s Third Fight Within A 6 Month Period And The Boxing World Is Starting To Take Notice Of The Active Schedule And The Large And Boisterous Crowds That Show Up Whenever He Fights. “I Love Fighting In My Hometown. The Fans Are Great And The People Get Excited. Its Great To Be Able To Stay Busy And Fight Often”. Flores Is Currently Rated As High As #3 In The World Ratings But Is Looking Forward To Gaining That Number One Spot After His Fight In January.

But First Things First……

Chris Whitehead Of The Springfield Boys And Girls Club Of Springfield Will Be Accepting The Check Of $5,000 On Behalf Of The Organization. The Springfield Boys And Girls Club Is Where BJ Started His Young Boxing Career And Was Responsible For Giving BJ The Means And The Transportation To Travel All Around The Country And Fight In Tournaments All Over America. “The Springfield Boys Club Is Where I Had My First Fight At 10 Years Old. This Wonderful Organization Has Helped Me To Experience So Much At Such A Young Age. I Was Taught That If I Trained Hard And Was Diligent In My Training Sessions Than I Would In Fact Be Able To Participate In Any Tournament If I Qualified For It. This Gave Me Great Motivation And I Can Never Thank Those People Who Helped Me Enough”.

Doug Pitt Of The Care To Learn Foundation, Will Be Accepting The Check On Behalf Of Care To Learn. Care To Learn Is A Charity That Makes Sure Elementary Age And Junior High Age Children Have All Of Their Basic Hygiene Needs Met. Pitts Organization Has Helped Many Schools All Over The State Of Missouri And Is Glad To Have BJ & Reliable Superstore Involved With This Great Cause. “When I First Heard About The Care To Learn Foundation I Immediately Remembered Back To What It Is Like To Be A Young Child And Not Have Money. I Didn’t Come From The Most Wealthy Background And Things Were Tight But I Always Remember Having My Basic Needs Covered And It Is Very Important That Children And Middle Aged Kids Have A Fair Chance. This Is Something I Believe In And Proud To Be A Part Of”.

Tony Stubblefield And BJ Flores Will Be Presenting The Checks Together At 3 PM And This Event Is Open To The Public. Tickets For The Fight Go On Sale This Saturday At The Shrine Mosque Box Office Or Available For Purchase On Ticketmaster.Com
