Carlos Molina and Don George are ... let's call them co-headliners tonight.
Tonight's edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights is the season finale for 2012 (though there will be at least one more "special" show next month), and features a top 10 junior middleweight in the main event.
The show goes live at 10 p.m. EDT on ESPN2 and streaming on ESPN3.com.
The original main event for the show was Karim Mayfield and someone I forgot, and I don't feel like looking it up, and then the other dude bailed, and then Mayfield bailed, and then when Cloud vs Pascal got called off, the Adonis Stevenson vs Don George fight was moved to this date, and then Stevenson bailed, so Dionisio Miranda stepped in, and that was the main event, but NOW, the original (third show original, anyway) co-feature between Carlos Molina and Damian Frias is apparently your main event of the evening from the Buffalo Run Casino in Miami, Oklahoma.
So that's the story for tonight. You've got Molina (19-5-2, 6 KO), a double-tough, durable, frustrating fighter whose record doesn't come close to matching his ability, against Frias (19-4-1, 10 KO), who has a similar record by numbers but not in terms of weight. Frias is a 35-year-old Cuban who just never panned out.
George (22-2-1, 19 KO) is an inconsistent fighter, both in terms of style and quality of performance. It wouldn't be totally outlandish if Miranda (21-7-2, 18 KO) could pull the upset. George is at his best when he's at his most aggressive, but it also makes him his most vulnerable.
I'm not going to be in tonight, but here's a thread. FNF it up, y'all.
