This week's Friday Night Fights comes to us from Foxwoods in lovely Mashantucket, Connecticut. I've actually never been to Mashantucket so I don't know if it's lovely or not. I'm a fraud.
Tonight, CES Boxing's "Hammerin'" Hank Lundy (19-1-1, 10 KO) takes on Venezuela's Patrick Lopez (20-3-1, 12 KO) in a 10-round lightweight main event. Lundy is familiar to Friday Night Fights fans, as he's on the program every time he fights these days.
The co-feature features super middleweight prospect Vladine Biosse (10-0, 5 KO) taking on Tim Connors (10-2, 7 KO). Connors is usually a junior middleweight, so this is mostly a sideways step for the still-raw Biosse, who was born in Cape Verde but fights out of Providence, where he was a high school star athlete.
Also on the show tonight, Micky Ward and Dicky Eklund will be in the studio with Brian Kenny to talk boxing, and probably talk about The Fighter and the potential sequel.
Join us tonight for the zany antics of Teddy Atlas and his in-season baseball analogies! The show starts at 9pm on ESPN2 and streaming on ESPN3.com.
