ESPN Friday Night Fights - Ramirez vs Lorenzo: Live streaming updates and results

Chris Farina - Top Rank

Gilberto Ramirez faces Giovanni Lorenzo in this week's FNF main event, with Jesse Hart and Egor Mekhontsev also in action.

Tonight at 10:00 pm EDT on ESPN2 from the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Top Rank presents a warm-up card on ESPN Friday Night Fights ahead of tomorrow night's big Pacquiao vs Bradley rematch on HBO pay-per-view. In the main event, Gilberto Ramirez faces veteran Giovanni Lorenzo in a 10-round super middleweight fight.

Ramirez (27-0, 21 KO) is a fast-rising prospect who at just 22 has already been a pro for over four years. He has wins over familiar mid-tier names like Samuel Miller, Richard Gutierrez, Marcus Upshaw, Derrick Findley, and Don Mouton to his credit already, and Lorenzo (33-6, 25 KO) in theory represents the next step up the ladder.

The 33-year-old Lorenzo, a Dominican-born New Yorker, is a two-time middleweight world title challenger with fights (and losses) against Raul Marquez, Sebastian Sylvester (debatable), Felix Sturm, Hassan N'dam, Sam Soliman, and most recently, Daniel Jacobs. Jacobs pretty much trucked Lorenzo, stopping him in the third round. It's the only stoppage loss of Lorenzo's career.

Also featured on tonight's card will be 24-year-old super middleweight prospect and second generation fighter Jesse Hart (12-0, 10 KO), who has thus far been very impressive as a professional. He'll be facing Samuel Clarkson (10-2, 6 KO) in an eight-round super middleweight fight. Russian light heavyweight prospect and 2012 Olympic gold medalist Egor Mekhontsev (2-0, 2 KO) will also be in action against Dwayne Williams (5-1, 2 KO).
