“We’re very excited to add this rematch between Louisa Hawton and Brenda Flores,” said Loeffler. “Their first fight at the SUPERFLY 3 was a tremendous back and forth battle and one of the most memorable fights in Southern California this year. As soon as the fight was over, fans wanted to see a rematch and it fits perfectly for December 8 with the event being headlined by the best women’s fighter in the world, Cecilia Braekhus.”

Scores in the first fight were 97-93 and 96-94 for Flores with the third judge scoring the bout 97-93 for Hawton. From the opening bell the bout was fought at close range with both fighters consistently landing heavy handed power shots to the head and body throughout the ten rounds as the Forum crowd stood and cheered for both of the bloodied warriors.

Now training in Los Angeles with former world champion Buddy McGirt, Hawton will be fighting for the fourth time this year, all of the bouts coming in Southern California. Originally competing in the junior flyweight division, the all-action Hawton moved down to her more natural weight (atomweight) to face Flores in September. On June 6, 2018, Hawton thrilled the huge crowd at the ‘Hollywood Fight Nights’ event with a fourth-round stoppage of Elvia Trevino at the AVALON in Hollywood, CA.

For the 26-year-old Flores, the first fight against Hawton represented her U.S. debut with all of her previous bouts coming in Mexico. She has won eight of her last nine bouts with her only loss coming in a world title fight by decision to Silvia Torres in December 2017. Following the victory over Hawton, Flores defeated Lucia Hernandez Nunez by decision over six rounds on November 9, 2018 in Tijuana.
