Gabriel Flores Jr. vs. Josec Ruiz Fight Results

June 18
MGM Grand Conference Center – Grand Ballroom

Main Event
Jose Pedraza (26-3, 13 KOs) vs. Mikkel LesPierre (22-1-1, 10 KOs)
10 rounds, Super Lightweight

Pedraza, who won world titles at junior lightweight and lightweight, is taking another run at the super lightweight division following last September’s decision loss to Jose “Chon” Zepeda. His opponent LesPierre challenged Maurice Hooker for a world title last year, dropping a unanimous decision. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Brooklyn resident received deliveries and assisted doctors and nurses at Mount Sinai Beth Israel in Manhattan.

“I am very excited to finally return to the ring after this long break. During quarantine, I made adjustments and trained hard from home, Pedraza said. “Despite everything that is happening in the world, my team and I have had a great training camp. I have done many runs up the mountains in Cidra, Puerto Rico. I am now focused on giving the fans a great show on June 18 against Mikkel LesPierre. We know he is a world-class fighter, but I am, too, and I am determined to return to the top once again.”

“I’m excited and blessed to be a part of the first round of televised sports as we navigate through this pandemic,” LesPierre said. “Jose Pedraza is a good fighter and a former world champion, but I feel that I have the tools to beat him. It will be a great fight and an opportunity for me to take my career to the next level. The Maurice Hooker fight was just a taste of what the elite level is all about. I’m determined to get back to title contention. This fight is the first step toward that goal. I’m ready to go.”

Co-Feature
Gabriel Flores Jr. (17-0, 6 KOs) vs. Josec Ruiz (21-2-3, 14 KOs)
10 rounds, Lightweight

The 20-year-old Flores, fresh off a win on the Deontay Wilder-Tyson Fury 2 undercard, returns in his first scheduled 10-rounder. Flores, the Stockton, California native who signed with Top Rank when he was 16 years old, packed more than 10,000 spectators into the Stockton Arena last May to establish himself as one of the sport’s top regional ticket-sellers. Ruiz is unbeaten in his last 16 bouts.

Undercard

David “The Lion of Zion” Kaminsky (6-0, 3 KOs) will face noted spoiler Clay Collard (6-2-3, 2 KOs) in a six-rounder at super middleweight. Collard, who also is a veteran MMA pro, has defeated unbeaten prospects in his last two fights.

In four-round bouts each, Puerto Rican super featherweight Frevian Gonzalez (2-0, 1 KO) will fight an opponent to be named, while super lightweight Victor Rodriguez (2-0, 1 KO) will face Justin Horsley (0-1).

Jose Pedraza vs. Mikkel LesPierre
Gabriel Flores Jr vs. Josec Ruiz
A second round knockdown set the tone early for Gabriel Flores Jr. (18-0, 6 KOs) against Josec Ruiz (22-3-3, 14 KOs). From there, Ruiz managed to stay upright throughout the duration of the contest, but he did very little to make it competitive. In the end, all three judges awarded Flores Jr. with the unanimous decision victory by scores of 100-89 on the cards of all three judges.
Adrian Servins vs. Robert Rodriguez
Robert Rodriguez (8-0-1, 4 KOs) became the first man to defeat Adrian Servin (9-1-1, 3 KOs) tonight at the MGM Grand Conference Center. It was an explosive second round for Rodriguez after a slow first round. It was an early knockdown in the second that was the beginning of the end. Shortly after, Rodriguez poured it on and forced the referee to call an end to the bout.

Victor Rodriguez vs. Justin Horsley

Not a single round was won the scorecards of the judges tonight for Justin Horsley (0-2) as he was simply outclassed by Victor Rodriguez (3-0, 1 KO) tonight at the MGM Grand Conference Center, in Las Vegas, Nevada. If you seen the first round of the night, then you essentially seen them all as Rodriguez simply dominated.

Frevian Gonzalez vs. Jose Martinez
Frevian Gonzalez (3-0, 1 KO) took home an uneventful win against Jose Martinez (2-1, 1 KO) at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
David Kaminsky vs.  Clay Collard
Match makers might want to think twice about matching up their undefeated fighters with Clay Collard (7-2-3, 2KOs). David Kaminsky (6-1, 3 KOs) quickly proved why as he lost a close split decision victory at the hands of Collard. There was no need to look at the scorecards following six rounds as the tale of the fight was written all over the bloody face of Kaminsky. Facing Collard should no longer be viewed as a sagacious decision for prospects looking for an easy win.
