Delvin Rodriguez faces Freddy Hernandez in tonight's ESPN Friday Night Fights main event.

ESPN Friday Night Fights

Tonight at 10 pm EDT on ESPN2, Friday Night Fights is back with a 10-round main event in the junior middleweight division. Former world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez makes another appearance on FNF, facing former welterweight title challenger Freddy Hernandez.

Rodriguez (27-6-3, 15 KO) is coming off of a totally one-sided beatdown of George Tahdooahnippah in February, months after he was outclassed against then-WBA junior middleweight titlist Austin Trout on Showtime. The 33-year-old Rodriguez is hoping to muscle his way back into contention, and stays busy tonight against Hernandez (30-4, 20 KO), a rail-thin Mexican who has lost two straight to Erislandy Lara and Demetrius Andrade, and three of his last four going back to a TKO-1 loss to Andre Berto in 2010.

In the 10-round junior welterweight co-feature, Issouf Kinda (16-0, 6 KO) will face Chris Howard (15-2-1, 7 KO). Kinda, born in Burkina Faso and now fighting out of the Bronx, is a 25-year-old prospect whose most notable win came over Mike Arnaoutis. Howard, 24, lost a pair of fights in 2012, but beat Bayan Jargal in February.
