No more ESPN2 Friday Night Fights scheduled for this year that actually take place on a Friday night. This week’s ESPN2 show will be a Wednesday boxing telecast featuring jr middleweight Erislandy Lara against Willie Lee. The final show of the “boxing season” as ESPN likes to call it, will be on Saturday August 28 from Montreal. That card is seeking a new main event after hot middleweight David Lemieux (23-0, 22 KOs) had to pull out with an injury. There may be some FNF special telecasts cropping up on occasion until the weekly boxing series returns in January.
Luckily fight fans will still have plenty of boxing on Friday nights with SHOWTIME’s popular ShoBox series, TeleFutura’s weekly Solo Boxeo series and Telemundo’s Boxeo Telemundo.
