Tonight at 10:30 p.m. EDT on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com, all-action Russian junior welterweight Ruslan Provodnikov returns to action to face Mexico's Jose Reynoso in a 10-round main event bout.

Provodnikov (21-1, 14 KO) has become both a Friday Night Fights regular and favorite, and doesn't appear to be matched particularly tough tonight with Reynoso (16-3-1, 3 KO), who has won five straight but against very soft competition. The 27-year-old is a 5'10" southpaw, though, and could wind up being a sneaky opponent tonight for the aggressive Provodnikov.

In the televised co-feature, 21-year-old super bantamweight prospect Roberto Castaneda (20-1-1, 15 KO) steps up his competition against spoiler Christopher Martin (23-2-3, 6 KO).

I haven't seen enough of Castaneda to know how good he is or might be, but Martin is a true pain in the ass to fight, which I mean in a good way. He's not an easy out, and though he's a fringe contender at best, he is plenty tricky enough to pull an upset over an untested kid who was stopped in five rounds, three fights ago in January.
