Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, New York, USA – 15 January 2022
Ukrainian Lyubomyr Pinchuk became the North American Boxing Association (WBA NABA) Gold cruiserweight champion after defeating Jose Mario Flores by unanimous decision at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, New York.
“Demolition Man”, as the European resident of Pittsburgh is nicknamed, made a smart fight and managed the distance well against the aggressive fighter Flores to get cards of 80-72, 79-73 and 79-73 in an eight round bout.
Pinchuk took advantage of his height and reach to work the distance well and keep the American veteran at bay. Although Flores worked hard in the early rounds and put the pressure, Pinchuk was able to handle the fight well and gradually gained the advantage thanks to his skills.
The 25-year-old Pinchuk improved with each round and at the end of the fight he landed a right hand that sent Flores to the canvas, but he recovered to finish the fight and hear the judges’ decision.
Pinchuk now has 14 wins, 2 losses, 1 draw and 8 knockouts, while Flores has 8 wins, 3 losses, 2 draws and 4 knockouts.
