Jab Hook's Predictions for Microsoft Theater, Los Angeles, January 13th, 2019: (Fox Sports 1/Fox Deportes): Brandon “The Heart Breaker” Figueroa 17(12)-0 vs. Moises “Chucky” Flores 25(17)-1, featherweights boxing in a 10 round prizefight.

“The Heart Breaker” Figueroa wants to make “Chucky” Flores look even more like a horror movie character than he already does. But Figueroa won't use makeup or a mask, he will simply sculpt and reshape the face of Flores with his fists, adding blood as needed.

This Texas based boxer has the good looks to help him build a fanbase; we will see more so if his skill set will also be a massive asset as he gloves up Sunday, Jan. 13 on FS1.

Moises Flores is so thirsty for some kind of break to end the downward spiral of his boxing career. He just cannot afford to lose and will therefore be a dangerous foe for Brandon Figueroa. “The Heart Breaker” Figueroa is the “A side” in the match up and he better not blow it!

Jab Hook's keys to victory:

Brandon Figueroa

  • Use reach advantage, fight long, jab repeatedly to control the ring.
  • Throw combinations ending to the body every round.
  • Be defensive, be patient, Flores will provide the opportunities.
  • Let Flores come forward, counter-punch, make him miss, make him pay.
  • Finish big.

Moises Flores

  • Open up strong and pressure Figueroa from the 1st bell on.
  • Use footwork and head movement to fight mid-range, always throwing combinations.
  • Work from angles, punching in flurries.
  • Invite Brandon into your living room, and if you know any tricks, keep them ready.
  • No prisoners, get him or go out on your shield.

“Quien es mas macho?” In this bout we will easily notice Brandon Figueroa's lifelong ambition to be better than Omar Figueroa. It is a brother thing. Blues eyes will takes more risks than he should, just to prove that pretty boys always want to be mean and ugly in the ring. This Sunday, the only one whose heart he wants to break is “Chucky” Flores. Moises Flores is just about out of options, if he loses this bout he'll become a back-up opponent at a bargain price. “Chucky” will be ferocious, he will fight to the bloody end, just like in the horror movies.

Jab Hook predicts that “The Heart Breaker” Figueroa will put another nail in the coffin that used to be the career of “Chucky” Flores. Figueroa by TKO over Flores in the later rounds in a performance that might steal the show in LA.
