ESPN Friday Night Fights - Raheem vs Jargal: Live stream, results, and round-by-round coverage

Zahir Raheem rises from the ice like the Lich King to face Bayan Jargal in tonight's ESPN FNF main event.

Tonight at 9:00 pm EST on ESPN2 and streaming live on WatchESPN.com, Friday Night Fights is back from the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, with veteran Zahir Raheem headlining against Bayan Jargal in the 10-round junior welterweight main event.

Raheem (34-3, 21 KO) is best-known for his 2005 upset of Erik Morales, which came right after Morales beat Manny Pacquiao in the first of their three fights. After that, Raheem lost to Popo Freitas and never really got back on track, then was knocked out in 2008 by Ali Funeka. He fought twice in 2010, both times beating super journeyman Roberto Valenzuela, then disappeared until last year, when he came back to go 3-0 against Santos Pakau, Justin Juuko, and Tim Coleman. Now 37, he's working on his last shot at maybe making a run at a world title.

Jargal (17-4-3, 11 KO) is a high-energy guy who should be able to test Raheem's stamina and resolve. He's no contender, and he's lost three of his last five including a TKO-3 defeat against Chris Howard last time out, but it's still a real mystery what Raheem has left, especially if pushed.

In the co-feature, Juan Antonio Rodriguez (25-4, 23 KO) will face Yenifel Vicente (25-1-2, 17 KO) in an eight-round super featherweight bout. Rodriguez was originally supposed to face Arash Usmanee in the night's main event.
