Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund Join Friday Night Fights Studio Tonight

The subjects of the Oscar-nominated 2010 boxing drama The Fighter will be guests in the studio on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights this evening, as Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund will join Brian Kenny for some analysis and chit-chat. The show goes live on ESPN2 and streams on ESPN3.com at 9pm EDT.

The main event tonight pits Friday Night Fights regular Hank Lundy (19-1-1, 10 KO) against Patrick Lopez (20-3, 12 KO), a former two-time Venezuelan Olympian with a soft pro record. The 33-year-old Lopez is now based in Londonberry, New Hampshire, so not too far from the fight's locale tonight at Foxwoods in Connecticut.

This evening's co-feature will see former high school athletics standout Vladine Biosse (10-0, 5 KO) take on Tim Connors (10-2, 7 KO) in super middleweight action.

Bad Left Hook will be here this evening with live coverage and discussion, plus immediate post-fight analysis, of the Friday Night Fights card. The FNF crew is turning into a nice little weekly gathering here on the site, so I hope you'll join us this evening. We'll probably be doing the Solo Boxeo Tecate show after, too, on account of what the hell else am I going to do at 11:30 on a Friday night?

Also I hope if they go ahead with that Fighter sequel (which I think is ill-advised artistically at best), they call it The Fighter 2: Still Fighting.
