It's a make or break main event on tonight's edition of Friday Night Fights, live tonight at 9 p.m. EST on ESPN2 and ESPN3, as super bantamweights Teon Kennedy and Christopher Martin do battle in a 10-rounder from the Hard Rock in Las Vegas.

Kennedy (17-1-1, 7 KO) is looking to get back on track following a clear unanimous decision loss to Alejandro Lopez on August 13, which aired on Top Rank Live. Martin (23-1-2, 6 KO) is also coming off of a loss to journeyman Jose Angel Beranza on October 1 in Las Vegas.

Neither fighter, to say the least, can afford a second straight L on his record. Both Kennedy and Martin are quality young fighters, but at 25, they're not so young that ceilings may not have been reached already.

In the co-feature, 25-year-old Cuban welterweight prospect Yordenis Ugas (10-0, 5 KO) has a showcase bout against 31-year-old Texan Esteban Almaraz (10-4, 4 KO). Ugas is the latest affordable Cuban to hit the ESPN airwaves. Over/under on the times Joe Tessitore says "communist regime" is a mere 2.5, though -- he's cut way back on that in recent Cuban appearances on the show. That's an eight-round fight.

Jesse Magdaleno (7-0, 5 KO) is also in a six-rounder tonight. He may or may not be the swing fight.
