Fighter Bio

Born in Ponce, Puerto Rico and raised in Dunkirk, New York, Flores is the son of the late professional fighter Abimelic “El Bravo” Vega, who faced a long list of prospects and contenders before his untimely death in 2000 when Flores was just 10 years old.

The younger Flores started training at age three by following his father to the gym and, by the time he was five, would often be invited to show off his burgeoning skills by shadowboxing for the enjoyment of fans at his older brother’s amateur fights.
Flores went on to have over 100 fights, losing just 12 and winning several regional tournaments including the Silver Gloves Junior Golden Gloves and Brampton Cup. However, stricken by grief after his father’s passing, Flores took an extended break from boxing to play NCAA Division III college basketball for Medaille College and Fredonia State and then find work, before returning to the gym with Buffalo-based PAL trainer Hector Alejandro at the insistence of his fiancé. Flores now works with trainer Juan De Leon.

 

“My father’s passing took a toll on me, so I quit for a long time. But then I was working full-time and it was very stressful. I knew something was missing. I met my fiancé, and she brought the spark back for me. She said, ‘You’re wasting your talent,’ so I quit my job and went back. From there I turned pro and now I’m undefeated and signed to GCP.”

An ambidextrous natural southpaw who can switch stances effortlessly, Flores is a technical boxer with accurate, deceptively fast hands that give him an explosiveness opponents find overwhelming.

“Boxing led me to happiness,” continued Flores, “I’m a family man and I live by the motto ‘work hard, stay disciplined and do what you love.’ My goals in life are to be a great husband, future father and world champ. With Greg Cohen Promotions, I’m looking forward to finally achieving my goals.”
