No one could say Moises Flores and Luis Cusolito didn’t come to fight at the Sands Casino in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. From the opening bell to the time Flores earned a 12th-round TKO, the two men fired huge shot after huge shot in an all-action affair.
Flores was the more accurate and aggressive fighter throughout, but Cusolito landed several monster punches off the counter that kept him in the fight.
