Bonus FNF coverage on ESPN3
By Dan Rafael
If you don't get enough boxing on ESPN2's "Friday Night Fights" this week, just head to your computer for bonus coverage from this week's card in Chicago.
On the televised card (9 p.m. ET), junior middleweight contender Carlos Molina (20-5-2, 6 KOs) faces former titlist Cory Spinks (39-7, 11 KOs) in a title eliminator in the main event. Welterweight Antwone Smith (22-4-1, 12 KOs) takes on former lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo (64-11-1, 55 KOs) in the co-feature.
But after the broadcast goes off the air at 11 p.m. ET, log onto ESPN3.com for coverage of a scheduled eight-round heavyweight bout between Polish prospect Artur Szpilka (12-0, 9 KOs), who lives in Chicago, and Chicago gatekeeper Mike Mollo (20-3-1, 12 KOs).
Broadcaster Joe Tessitore and Teddy Atlas will call the ESPN3.com bonus action in addition to the televised bouts (which also will air on ESPN3.com).
