BJ Flores gets new opponent for Saturday fight in Missouri

Cruiserweight contender BJ Flores has a new opponent for his hometown fight on Friday in Missouri.

Cruiserweight contender and NBC Sports boxing analyst BJ Flores will be back in the ring this Saturday in Springfield, Missouri, and has a new opponent after original foe Ahmed Samir pulled out due to injury.

Flores (27-1-1, 17 KO) will now face West Virginia club fighter David McNemar (13-1, 10 KO), a part-time guy who hasn't fought since a shockingly competitive loss last year to another Missouri favorite, Ryan Coyne. At that point, McNemar hadn't even fought in four years, but made it close enough that many live thought that McNemar deserved the win over the hometown favorite in Saint Charles.

"After Samir pulled out, we offered the fight to five or six undefeated guys but McNemar was the one who stepped up to the plate and accepted. I know he is coming to win, so I expect a tough fight but at the end of the day I am ranked very high across the board and it's very possible and even likely that I will fight for a title in my next fight, so I can't look past McNemar," Flores said in a press release about the switch.

The fight will be televised locally by KOZL.
