Valadez to face Flores in Fight Night Club main event

Fight Night Club regular Ramon Valadez will face journeyman Ramon Flores in a six-round lightweight bout on Thursday in the main event of the popular monthly series at Club Nokia in downtown Los Angeles.

The card will be televised live on Fox Sports Net and its regional affiliates and streamed live on RingTV.com at 8 p.m. PT / 11 p.m. ET. Doors open at 6 p.m. PT. The first bell is at 7 p.m.

Valadez (8-1, 4 KOs) is perhaps best known for a thrilling four-round brawl against Oscar Andrade last July at Club Nokia, his second fight as a pro. The East L.A. fighter lost a decision in that fight but has since won seven consecutive fights, perhaps making him a legitimate prospect.

The main event is a rematch. Valadez defeated Flores (3-12-2, 3 KOs) by a unanimous decision in November.

Also on the card, Irish prospect Jamie Kavanagh (6-0, 2 KOs) faces John Willoughby (3-7, 2 KOs) in a six-round lightweight bout.

The event will be hosted by HOT 92.3's Jimmy Reyes.
