Raymundo Beltran vs Ji-Hoon Kim: Live results and round-by-round coverage

Raymundo Beltran faces Ji-Hoon Kim in a promising lightweight main event on tonight's special edition of ESPN2 boxing from the Mirage in Las Vegas.

Tonight at 10:00 pm EST on ESPN2, a special Thursday-night, off-season edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights goes live from the Mirage in Las Vegas, as Top Rank gears up its big boxing weekend in anticipation of Pacquiao-Marquez IV on Saturday night.

Raymundo Beltran will face Ji-Hoon Kim in the 12-round lightweight main event.

Beltran (26-6, 17 KO) has been on a solid run lately, winning his last fight over Hank Lundy on July 27, and losing very narrow, hard-fought decisions against unbeaten prospects Luis Ramos Jr and Sharif Bogere in a pair of other recent fights. The 31-year-old veteran has a chance to make a potential move toward a world title in the lightweight division right now, but he'll need a win to keep that hope alive.

Kim (24-7, 18 KO) is an ESPN2 favorite, a battling, power-punching Korean whose skills have improved over time. He's still a bit crude, but not nearly as much as he used to be, and he's become dangerous for more than just his bomb of a right hand. The 25-year-old Kim has won three straight, and looked better than ever beating Alisher Rahimov on May 25, his last fight. Kim threw 1,225 total punches in that fight, a 10-rounder, according to CompuBox.

Also featured on the card will be 21-year-old super bantamweight prospect Jesse Magdaleno (12-0, 9 KO), considered by some the more promising of the young Magdaleno brothers. He'll be facing Jonathan Arrellano (13-1-1, 3 KO), who lost his last fight against Roman Morales on September 21. Magdaleno-Arrellano is scheduled for eight rounds.
