Not a whole lot happening this week, but we do have 4 fights on the line-up including the ShoBox main-event between Cornelius Bundrage and Cory Spinks. The fighters met a couple years back, with Bundrage scoring a 5th round stoppage.
Also on the game-sheet is the Friday Night Fights main-event, with Ruslan Provodnikov going up against Jose Reynoso, and a super-bantamweight clash from Scotland between Paul Appleby and John Simpson.
Rounding out the line-up is a stay busy match for Erislandy Lara, with the Cuban taking on Freddy Hernandez. That's one is part of the Bundrage-Spinks undercard.
