Tonight on Fox Sports Net at 11pm ET, two fights will be shown live from Las Vegas.

In the main event, Gabriel Campillo (19-2, 6 KO) defends his light heavyweight title against Beibut Shumenov (8-1, 6 KO) for a second time, as Shumenov attempts again to become a recognized major titlist within his first ten pro fights.

On the undercard, Erislandy Lara (9-0, 5 KO) takes a step up against solid veteran Grady Brewer (26-11, 15 KO). It's also worth noting that off-TV, the fight between David Rodela (14-1-2, 6 KO) and Eloy Perez (15-0-2, 4 KO) found a new home on this show after the Mosley-Berto card was canceled.

Tonight's Friday Night Fights on ESPN2 has a potential war of a main event between Jesse Brinkley (34-5, 22 KO) and Curtis Stevens (21-2, 15 KO) in a super middleweight eliminator.

On the undercard (never know what FNF will show on TV undercards, really), welterweight prospect Raymond Serrano (11-0, 6 KO) takes on Ronnie Warrior Jr. (13-2-1, 4 KO). Yes, that's really his name.

Shobox is also on tonight (11pm ET) with a bantamweight main event, as Chris Avalos (14-0, 11 KO) takes on Jose Nieves (17-1-3, 8 KO). The co-feature will have Archie Ray Marquez (9-0, 7 KO) against Derrick Campos (20-7, 11 KO). You might remember Campos as the Kansas club fighter that Square Ring brought in to face Dmitriy Salita on the Calzaghe-Jones PPV, which wound up being the best fight of that pitiful card.

There's a card on Telemundo tonight, too. Bantamweight prospect Jesus Ruiz (19-2-2, 17 KO) will face Luis Melendez (26-4-1, 21 KO) for a vacant WBC regional trinket.

I'd like to apologize for the lack of good updates this week, but Brick and I have both been pretty busy. Next week I should be very much back in the swing of things.
