Palacios-BJ Flores for WBA interim title

“For me, this is unbelievable turn of events. 6 months ago I was basically done, not fighting again, quitting this sport, almost quitting on my life. Today, I’m signing contract to fight BJ Flores for cruiserweight WBA Interim title,” said overjoyed Puerto Rico’s Francisco “The Wizard” Palacios (21-2, 12 KOs) in a interview. Palacios-Flores will happen on May 11 in Hannover, Germany. “After my last fight, the WBC title fight against champion “Diablo” Włodarczyk in Poland, I was very disappointed, because for whatever reason I was not performing to my standards. After four rounds I was ahead on the scorecards, then just stopped being me. Fighting BJ, who I know for many years, is another great chance. A chance I was not counting on to get, so now it’s everything or nothing. No BS – this is the truth!”
