Former boxer BJ Flores was in the hospital on Thursday night after being shot in the leg in a robbery.
Flores, who now is one of Jake Paul‘s coaches, said that two “armed motorcycle drivers” attacked him at a red light while he was a passenger in another vehicle in Colombia.

They pulled up, stuck a gun to my head, tried to steal my wallet and my watch. They shot me one time in the leg and I defended myself the best way I could,” he said in an Instagram post.
At the time of early Friday’s post, Flores said he was still in the emergency room “waiting to have the bullet removed at 5:18 am.”
Flores began training Paul in 2021 after his boxing career in which he went 34-4-1. He had 21 wins by knockout, fighting as a cruiserweight and heavyweight.
His last fight was on Aug. 11, 2018, a loss by TKO against Trevor Bryan for the vacant interim WBA heavyweight title.
