Tonight's edition of ESPN2 Friday Night Fights starts at 9pm ET from the Don Haskins Convention Center in El Paso, Texas, with a 10-round main event between Antonio Escalante and Miguel Roman, which promises action to be sure. An impressive win tonight for Escalante would probably bump him into my top 10 at 122 pounds, a division in the middle of great turnover. This weekend has two key fights in the division, with this one and tomorrow's Vazquez-Sonsona bout.
In the co-feature, Golden Boy prospect Danny Garcia takes on England's Ashley Theophane.
