A week left in the season, and the title race is still wide open. And if you're a little farther back, there are still plenty of Player of the Year points up for grabs.
We've got 6 bouts on the line-up, with a 175lb clash between Mikkel Kessler and Allan Green topping the bill.
There's a super-flyweight match-up finally taking place in Mexico, with Juan Carlos Sanchez and Juan Alberto Rosas going at it. Friday Night Fights has a junior-welterweight 10-rounder that looks on paper to be fairly well matched, with Karim Mayfield taking on Raymond Serrano in Albany.
There's also a couple of heavyweight fights, with British prospect David Price going up against Sam Sexton and Odlanier Solis facing Konstantin Airich. And finally, at the other end of the spectrum, a minimuweight battle between Denver Cuello and Ganigan Lopez.
