B.J. Flores is ready to defend his NABA and NABO titles in SGF in October.

It looks like B.J. Flores‘ victories and partnership with Don King might be paying off.

While at the DoubleTree hotel in north SGF promoting his return to the boxing ring in Saturday’s MMA/Boxing card at Drury, Flores’ trainer Jacob Chavez said Team Flores has “a few title offers” on the table. Chavez wouldn’t comment on which belts are in play, but said King is trying to figure out a way to make it happen in Springfield. There is no imminent timetable.

“Don was very happy with the way things went (with the Pineda card). He was impressed,” Chavez said.

The current cruiserweight boxing champions are:

  • WBA — Guillermo Jones (38-3-2)
  • WBC — Krzysztof Wlodarczyk (46-2-1)
  • IBF — Yoan Pablo Hernandez (26-1)
  • WBO — Marco Huck (34-1)

Chavez said Flores was taking time off after fighting three times in the past seven months, all of which were wins.
