Golden Boy's Fight Night Club series returns live tonight from Club Nokia in Los Angeles with rebounding Victor Ortiz headlining against Hector Alatorre, a guy he should by all rights completely run over like a Mack truck barreling down on a frozen doe. If Ortiz wins, he moves on to face Nate Campbell on May 15.
Though Fox Sports Net is the TV home of the series, the show tonight will be aired on tape delay on FSN. However, RingTV.com will air the show live, starting at 11pm ET.

Fight Night Club is now going to air once a month, with the next show scheduled for March 25. That night, bantamweight contender Abner Mares will main event in a final tune-up before facing Yonnhy Perez for a title on May 22. It also now appears that Sergio Mora will headline on May 27. Doug Fischer reported all of this earlier.
Also in action tonight:
- Lightweights: Luis Ramos (13-0, 7 KO) v. Walter Estrada (35-11, 24 KO). Estrada has in recent fights been railroaded by Yuriorkis Gamboa, Michael Farenas and Marvin Quintero. Those three fights -- Estrada's last three -- were all KO-1s. Estrada lasted a grand total of three minutes and 59 seconds in the three fights combined.
- Featherweights: Charles Huerta (12-1, 7 KO) v. Guadalupe de Leon (8-9, 4 KO). Huerta's a decent prospect, but don't sleep on de Leon entirely. He upset Derrick Wilson on December 2 after losing seven straight fights.
