“I am so delighted to be on the broadcast team for ROSEMONT RUMBLE: “GOING FOR 20-0” on September 15,” said Bernstein. “It’s a great card headed up by Mike Lee’s quest to get to 20-0.

The nationally known and acclaimed Flores has been the ring announcer and commentator for

hundreds of world class boxing events across the country over the last ten years.

Said Flores, “I look forward to being on the call when Mike Lee goes for ‘20-0.’ Mike’s a consummate professional who carries himself with class inside and outside the ring.
