Tomorrow Night.: Solis/Grigsby for the IBF Light Flyweight Title

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

The Versus Network's Fight Night returns tomorrow with a main event fight for the IBF light flyweight title, a rematch between champion Archie Solis and challenger and former titleholder Will Grigsby. On the undercard, heavyweight gimmick "Railroad" Tye Fields (37-1, 34 KO) takes on Kendrick Releford (14-8-1, 5 KO) in a 10-round fight.

Solis (22-1-2, 16 KO) and Grigsby (18-3-1, 7 KO) first fought on January 7, 2006, with Solis scoring a victory by unanimous decision, with decisive scores of 118-110, 117-111 and 116-112. Grigsby had been on a four-fight winning streak, culminating with a win over Victor Burgos for the IBF title in May of 2005. It was his second time holding the championship, the first after a victory over Ratanapol Sor Vorapin in 1998, when the title was vacant.

While Grigsby has been out of the ring since his loss to Solis, the champion has fought two times. Solis beat Eric Ortiz via ninth round TKO in March, and fought to a draw with Omar Salado in August.

At 37 in March, this could be Grigsby's last chance at the title against the 25-year old Solis. We'll be here for live, round-by-round coverage and scoring for both fights, even though one of them is an utterly inconsequential heavyweight mess that should end within five rounds. Join us tomorrow night!
