Friday Night Fights and ShoBox: Live updates and discussion

Tom Casino/SHOWTIME

ARE YOU READING FOR SOME BOXING?!?! YEAH, A FRIDAY NIGHT PARTY!

There's a double-header of HOT BOXING ACTION tonight on Showtime and ESPN2, with a late-starting Friday Night Fights and an early-starting ShoBox. A-whaaaaaaat?!

On ShoBox (10:00 pm EDT, Showtime), Cuban southpaw lightweight Angelo Santana (14-0, 11 KO) will meet Bahodir Mamadjonov (12-1, 8 KO) in a short-notice main event. Santana, 24, was supposed to face Carlos Cardenas, who pulled out last week with a shoulder injury.

In the co-feature, junior welterweight Amir Imam (8-0, 7 KO) will face Jeremy Bryan (16-2, 7 KO) in an eight-round fight. This card, promoted by Don King, has been titled, "The Fight For Freedom ... The Dream Lives On," which is absolutely hilarious.

On Friday Night Fights (11:00 pm EDT, ESPN2), former fortunate super bantawmeight titlist Rico Ramos (21-2, 11 KO) makes his, um, long-awaited return? to the airwaves against Oscar Gonzalez (20-2, 14 KO) in a 10-round featherweight main event. Gonzalez lost his last fight to Raul Hirales, a fighter you may remember Carl Frampton blowing out last year.

In the co-feature, I have no idea what they're airing, because Francisco Sierra came in 17.5 pounds overweight for his scheduled fight with Farah Ennis, and that put the kibosh on that idea.
