ESPN has announced the card for tomorrow night’s brand new edition of Friday Night Fights.  Tomorrow’s show will feature former Lightweight title challenger “The Gladiator” John Molina, Jr. (24 – 2, 19 KOs) taking on the near equally matched Dannie Williams (22 – 2, 18 KOs) in the ten-round main event.   It all kicks off tomorrow night at 9pm EST on ESPN2 HD.  Audiences with mobile tech can watch the match online with the WatchESPN app and online at  Host Todd Grisham will anchor the broadcast from ESPN’s studios with all the latest boxing news and highlights.  He will be joined by Joe Tessitore and Teddy Atlas on the broadcast.  The pair will be at ringside calling all the action for ESPN, while Alex Pombo and Delvin Rodriguez will call all the action for ESPN’s Hispanic audiences on ESPN Deportes.  Their counterparts Leopoldo Gonzales and Pablo Viruega will be in studio and Bernardo Osuna will have live reports and interviews for both ESPN and ESPN Deportes.

Audiences that tune in tomorrow night will get to see not just the match between Molina and Williams, but also a faceoff between Brandon “Flawless” Gonzales (16 – 0 – 1, 10 KOs) and “Dangerous” Don Mouton (11 – 4 – 1, 9 KOs) in the night’s second fight.  This serves to be an interesting match not just because of the pair’s records but also because of their time between fights.  Gonzales, who is trained by 2011 BWAA Trainer of the year Virgil Hunter, comes into the match after a unanimous decision against Eli Augustama in an eight-round fight this past June.  Only three months have passed since Mouton’s last fight.  He is coming into tomorrow night’s show on the heels of a sixth-round KO win against Samuel Clarkson this past October. Mouton and Gonzales will go toe-to-toe tomorrow night in an eight round bout.

Starting the whole night off will be a four round Light Heavyweight showdown between newcomer Mark Lujan and Siju Shabazz (4 – 4,  2 KOs).  To get all the latest and to keep up with everything going on with ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, fans can follow it on Twitter at @ESPNFNF, or “Like” it on Facebook at  Hispanic fans can follow the fights online too, at @ESPNBoxeo on Twitter.
