Friday Night Fights - Barthelemy vs Sakkreerin: Live results and round-by-round coverage

ESPN Friday Night Fights is back with another doubleheader tonight from Minneapolis, as Rances Barthelemy and Fahsai Sakkreerin meet in the main event in an IBF super featherweight eliminator.

A potential world title challenger will be made tonight, as the ESPN Friday Night Fights main event is an IBF super featherweight title eliminator, with Cuba's Rances Barthelemy facing Thailand's Fahsai Sakkreerin in the main event from Minneapolis. To make sure anyone actually showed up, Minnesota fighter Caleb Truax will take on Chicago's Don George in the catchweight co-feature, just north of middleweight.

The show is live tonight at 10:00 pm EDT.

Barthelemy (18-0, 11 KO) is the favorite tonight, as Sakkreerin (39-3-1, 21 KO) is mostly unknown and has largely built his record on subpar opposition. That doesn't mean an "upset" won't be in the offing, though; Barthelemy, 26, hasn't exactly faced murderer's row thus far, either, and in his last fight against Arash Usmanee, many felt he was given a gift decision victory at home in Miami.

Truax (21-1-1, 12 KO) is a solid club fighter type who has won three in a row since putting a scare into Jermain Taylor in April 2012, while George (24-3-2, 21 KO) is attempting to establish himself at middleweight after falling short in bids at super middleweight. George's last fight was a draw at home in Chicago against David Lopez, and last October, he was stopped in 12 after taking big punishment from Adonis Stevenson in Montreal.
