New, comments

Adrien Broner faces Gavin Rees in the weekend's biggest fight, with Delvin Rodriguez headlining ESPN Friday Night Fights, and the vacant IBF super bantamweight title on the line in Mexico.

Friday, February 15

ESPN2, 9:00 pm EST, Delvin Rodriguez vs George Tahdooahnippah, Bayan Jargal vs Chris Howard. Conventional wisdom for this one is that Rodriguez (26-6-3, 14 KO) will be a bridge too far for "Comanche Boy" (31-0-1, 23 KO), but the good news is that Tahdooahnippah is actually ambitious enough to try getting out of weak fights in Oklahoma and do something real with his career, so that's very respectable. BLH will have live coverage.

Direct TV (Argentina), 9:00 pm EST, Fernando Angulo vs Miguel Leonardo Caceres, Daniel Alejandro Sanabria vs Walter David Cabral.

TV Publica (Argentina), 9:00 pm EST, Ricardo Marcelo Ramallo vs Richard Vidal.

Saturday, February 16

TyC Sports (Argentina), 8:00 pm EST, Gonzalo Omar Basile vs Alfredo Brigido Ruiz Diaz, Pablo Oscar Natalio Farias vs Mauricio Roberto Caceda.

HBO / Sky Sports (UK) / Space (Argentina/Mexico), 10:30 pm EST, Adrien Broner vs Gavin Rees. There might be a co-feature here, which would be Sakio Bika-Nikola Sjekloca, but I haven't seen if that's been officially bumped up. Broner is the huge favorite in the main event, with all due respect to the capable, gritty Rees. BLH will have live coverage.

UniMas / TV Azteca (Mexico), 11:00 pm EST, Alex Lopez vs Jhonatan Romero, Hanzel Martinez vs Alejandro Gonzalez Jr. Lopez-Romero is for the vacant IBF title at 122 pounds. Martinez is Antonio Margarito's nephew.
