We are sad to inform the fight community that Texas boxer Benjamin Flores (19-4, 6 KOs) passed away this morning. Flores was hospitalized following his NABF super bantamweight title fight in Dallas, against Al Seeger last Thursday. Seeger was awarded the TKO win in the eighth, and Flores was helped to his stool. Soon after, he was taken out on a stretcher, unconscious, to Parkland Hospital where he died five days later.
