Tony Bellew defeated BJ Flores in just third round to defend his WBC Cruiserweight title. It was a very underwhelming performance by the challenge Flores who got knocked down three times in round two before Bellew finished the job in third round.
BJ Flores was never in the fight as soon as the first round bell ringed, Bellew was too big, too powerful and skilled as he steamrolled Flores and immediately after referee stopped the fight Bellew climbed over the ropes to confront potential challenger David Haye who was part of the media ringside. Its all cracking up as we speak and we might have a all british affair between Tony Bellew and David Haye earlier next year.
