CLEVELAND, OH (May 20, 2022) – Former Super-Flyweight World Title Challenger Antonio Nieves (19-3,1, 11 KOs), is looking to get back on track when he returns this Saturday, May 21, 2022, at The Civic Center in Cleveland Heights, Ohio. Nieves will square off against Judy Flores (10-0, 6 KOs), who hails from the Philippines, in a scheduled 8-round bout.

"I want to thank my management and training team Tim VanNewhouse and Joe Delguyd for getting me this opportunity,” said Nieves. “I know I’m a world-class fighter, and a victory will put me back in position to get some big fights. I have been out of the ring for over two years since losing to Joshua Greer Jr., A fight I felt I won. I needed to decide if I wanted to keep going since this is such a thankless sport. Thankfully, I found my motivation and I am ready to get back into the big fights."

The card promoted by Vick Green will be headlined by local draw Thomas Mattice.

"Ive’ worked with Antonio since his Pro-Debut and Joe Delguyd and I want him to get the most out of his career," said Tim VanNewhouse. "This is a big chance for him to get back into the world ratings and position himself as one of the sports world contenders. I think he is going to be the best version of himself when he steps into the ring on Saturday.”

"My goal is to show the world what I am capable of after a setback," concluded Nieves. "I feel I only have one loss, Inoue, one of the best fighters in the world. I feel largely disrespected and underappreciated, so I am going to go out and take what I feel is owed to me and that starts with this fight."
