Jay Harris vs. Hector Gabriel Flores Added to MTK Fight Night in Cardiff
The card is a co-promotion between MTK Global and Mo Prior and takes place at the Vale Sports Arena on Friday 26 November – and will now be broadcast in the USA on ESPN+ in association with Top Rank, and on IFL TV for the rest of the world.
Former world title challenger Harris (18-2, 9 KOs) drops down to light-flyweight for the fight, as he goes in search of another crack at world honours in a new division. Standing in his way is unbeaten Flores (18-0-4, 9 KOs) with the dangerous Mexican looking to build on his run of 10 straight victories.
Elsewhere on this month’s card, Jacob Robinson (8-0, 2 KOs) and Angelo Dragone (5-2) clash for the Welsh Area featherweight title, former British and Commonwealth champion Akeem Ennis Brown (14-1, 1 KO) returns, while two-time Commonwealth Games medallist Sean McGoldrick (11-1, 3 KOs) is back for his second fight in quick succession.
On the undercard, heavyweight Miles Gordon (2-0) makes his long-awaited comeback after nearly five years out, plus Ethan George will make his professional debut.
Rashid Omar, Kyran Jones (1-0) Mano Lee (4-2, 1 KO) and Ben Crocker (1-0) will all be on the bill too, in what looks set to be another action-packed evening in Cardiff.
MTK Global Promoter Lee Eaton said: “We’re delighted to add this great fight between Jay Harris and Hector Gabriel Flores to our event in Cardiff this month. It was already a stacked show and this has just made it even better.
“This new weight class will suit Jay massively, and we’re hoping to have a title added to the fight as well. With the likes of Jacob Robinson vs. Angelo Dragone, Akeem Ennis Brown, Sean McGoldrick and more all in action too, it’s a card not to be missed.”
