Friday Night Fights - Vera vs Bondrovas: Live discussion

Brian Vera faces Donatras Bondrovas tonight on ESPN Friday Night Fights.

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

Rugged Texas brawler Brian Vera is back in action tonight, headlining ESPN Friday Night Fights at 9 pm EDT, this week on ESPN, rather than ESPN2.

Middleweight Vera (22-6, 13 KO) will look to win his fourth straight, as he faces 33-year-old Lithuanian Donatas Bondrovas (17-3-1, 6 KO) in a 10-round bout from the Turning Stone casino in Verona, New York. Bondrovas, fighting out of Chicago, has a light record, but this is a chance for him to upset a known, respected, veteran fighter on a nationally televised show, and he might not ever get another chance like this.

In the co-feature, light heavyweight prospects Jackson Junior (14-0, 12 KO) and Umberto Savigne (10-1, 7 KO) will meet in another 10-round bout in a Brazil vs Cuba fight that will surely bring out the words "international flavor" on the telecast.

I won't be in for the fights tonight, as Michigan is in their first sweet sixteen in a really old dog's age, so enjoy the fights tonight while I probably have a bad night watching basketball.
