Khiary Gray-Pitts Remains Undefeated via Dominating Decision on Friday Night
The unbeaten Worcester, Mass., native kept his perfect record intact Friday in the main event of CES Boxing’s season opener at Twin River Casino, defeated the game Eduardo Flores (23-20-3) of Ecuador, 100-90, 100-90, 99-91, to capture the vacant Universal Boxing Federation (UBF) International Junior Middleweight Title.
Gray (12-0) had knocked out his previous eight opponents, including seven in the first round, entering Friday, but Flores, who agreed to the fight on Tuesday after Gray’s original opponent, Cameron Rivera, fractured his wrist, gave Gray the fight of his life.
Entering the bout, Gray planned on pacing himself more than he had in his previous fights and he stayed true to his word, methodically picking apart his opponent while cutting off the ring effectively and simply out-boxing Flores for all 10 rounds. Gray fought more rounds Friday than he had in his previous eight bouts combined, but stamina was no issue; he looked as fresh in the eighth round as his did in the first.
