Friday Night Fights Open Thread

240px-godfreyNo superstars fighting tonight, but we do get two relatively even-matched fights involving three contenders and a prospect.  Matt "Too Smooth" Godfrey, coming off a recent loss to Rudolf Kraj in a title eliminator, as well as a victory over Emmanuel Nwodo, takes on Shawn Hawk, the undefeated Sioux cruiserweight prospect.  On the undercard, Shaun George, who nobody's been willing to go near since he dominated Chris Byrd, faces off against Chris Henry, who's coming off a close loss to Adrian Diaconu in a title fight and a slightly wider loss to top 10 light heavyweight Yusef Mack.  The winner of either fight may see himself enter the top 10, if they win convincingly.

In other results around the boxing globe, Lee Haskins beat Ross Burkinshaw to win the Commonwealth super flyweight title.  Also, former longtime minimumweight titlist Ratanpol Sor Vorapin likely saw the end of his career, getting knocked out by 5-1-2 Joel Rafols.
