ShoBox and ESPN Friday Night Fights (June 6, 2014): Live streaming results and coverage

Esther Lin/SHOWTIME

Boxing is back on your TV tonight, as ESPN Friday Night Fights and ShoBox: The New Generation both have live cards this evening.

Tonight starting at 9:00 pm EDT, Bad Left Hook will have live coverage for both ESPN Friday Night Fights and ShoBox: The New Generation, featuring a handful of interesting prospects overall.

On Friday Night Fights (9pm EDT, ESPN2), Iron Mike Productions has a doubleheader from the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, New York, headlined with a ten-round junior middleweight fight between Yudel Jhonson (15-1, 9 KO) and Norberto Gonzalez (20-3, 13 KO). But the most interesting fighter to watch on this card is probably welterweight prospect Sammy Vasquez Jr (14-0, 10 KO), who may be the best young fighter on the Iron Mike roster. Vasquez, 28, will be facing Jay Krupp (17-6, 8 KO) in a fight scheduled for eight rounds.

ShoBox will go live at 10:00 pm EDT with a Golden Boy-promoted doubleheader from Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California, with two 154-pound prospects in action.

In the main event, Hugo Centeno Jr (20-0, 11 KO) will face Gerardo Ibarra (14-0, 8 KO), set for 10 rounds. Ibarra, 23, is a Houston fighter relocated to Los Angeles now, and is also a short-notice replacement for Domonique Dolton, who pulled out due to an injury suffered in training camp.

Ibarra is certainly the underdog here, but he may be getting the sort of chance that he can capitalize on. It's his biggest audience to date, and his biggest opportunity.

Eddie Gomez (16-0, 10 KO) will also be in action and scheduled for 10 rounds, as he takes on Francisco Santana (19-3-1, 9 KO) in another 154-pound fight. Gomez is a highly talented fighter, but one some are skeptical of because of his perceived lack of dedication, and some trouble outside the ring here and there. He gets a chance to make a statement tonight against a guy who has won seven straight, including decision nods over veterans Freddy Hernandez and Joachim Alcine, the latter a former titleholder at 154.
