Tonight's edition of Friday Night Fights is live on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com at 9 p.m. EDT, and Bad Left Hook will be here with live results, commentary, and round-by-round updates and scoring.
The main event tonight is a 154-pound fight between Cuban Yudel Jhonson (10-0, 7 KO) and Jose Miguel Torres (21-4, 19 KO). Torres has a very empty record, but Jhonson is the showcase fighter. In March, he shared a FNF bill with countryman Erislandy Lara. Lara disappointed in a draw against Carlos Molina, but Jhonson showed his skills with a win over Richard Gutierrez.
The co-feature won't be the fight we listed in our TV schedule for this week, as that is now off the bill. Last I heard the new co-feature was to be Tyrese Hendrix (20-2-1, 9 KO) taking on Walter Estrada (38-14-1, 25 KO) in lightweight-or-thereabouts eight-rounder. Hendrix was seen last year on TV against Hank Lundy in what was a pretty entertaining scrap, and Estrada has been around the block over the years, facing the likes of Yuriorkis Gamboa, Scott Harrison, Mikey Garcia, Kevin Mitchell, Roman Martinez, and many more. He's a globetrotting journeyman who can punch a little and has often been a fine test for up-and-comers. In his most recent two bouts, he beat Nate Campbell and lost to Vicente Escobedo.
