Alexander Flores TKO6 Mario Heredia ... Heavy-handed California heavyweight Alexander "The Great" Flores returned to the ring last Thursday night by stopping Mario "Chabelo" Heredia in the sixth round at Casino Del Sol in Tucson, Arizona. The 29-year-old Flores (18-2-1, 16 KOs) hadn't fought since last December in New Zealand, when he lost to former WBO champion Joseph Parker, in a fight in which Parker struck Flores numerous times below the belt, leading to a knockout. This time, Flores floored Heredia three times during their fight in the third, fifth and the finisher in the sixth. Flores used a body attack, resulting in the last two knockdowns, against the 282-pound Heredia (16-8-1, 13 KOs). Flores' only two losses have been to Parker and Charles Martin. Heredia holds a split decision over former WBC heavyweight champion and Nigerian Olympian Samuel Peter.
