In the early stages of round 6 Flores was hurt by an accidental headclash then dropped just moments later. Although Flores got to his feet from the knockdown it was clear that Nguyen could smell blood and immediately went after his foe, forcing the referee to save Flores just over a minute into the round.
For Flores the loss destroys his hopes of getting a world title fight in the near future whilst Nguyen has scored a career defining win and amazingly it was his first stoppage in more than 9 years!
