Luis Ortiz needed less than a minute to stop Alexander Flores when the two fought in a heavyweight clash this past weekend. The pair met in the main event of Saturday’s PBC show.
Ortiz bullied Flores right from the opening bell, and the bout ended after the Cuban sent Flores to the floor with a punishing body shot. Fast finishes are nothing new in boxing, but this one has caught the California State Athletic Commission’s attention.
The CSAC has come out and said that they are withholding Flores’ $80,000 purse until their investigation into the bout has finished.
“We’re not saying [he] did anything wrong at all. We need to take a look at this a little more than we have because [the conclusion] raised some questions,”said CSAC executive director Andy Foster told The Athletic.
Flores has now been told he must attend a hearing which will examine the fight and determine if Flores will get his purse.
