In a bout that will get strong consideration for Beltway Bout of the Year in 2014, Joshua Davis won a tough split decision over a very game Joel Flores.

Even with the knockdown, judge John Gradowski scored the bout for Flores, 57-56. Judges Kenny Chevalier and Don Risher saw the contest for Davis, 57-56 and 58-55 respectively.
Davis is now 6-1, three KO's. Flores is now 4-5, three KO's.
