Commentators:
Todd Grisham (@GrishamESPN), filling in for Joe Tessitore, will be ringside calling his first professional boxing match with Teddy Atlas for ESPN2 HD, while Bernardo Osuna (@osunaespn) will anchor the studio this week. Robert Sierra, filling in for Delvin Rodriguez, will call the fights with Pablo Viruega for ESPN Deportes’ Viernes de Combates (Friday Night Fights), while Leopoldo Gonzalez and Claudia Trejos will anchor the studio.

Main Event:

Poland’s Proska is coming off a six-round decision win over Norbert Szekeres, while Los Angeles’ Mora, who won the reality show The Contender in 2004-05, is looking to rebound from a 12-round unanimous decision loss to Brian Vera.

“I know a lot about Mora,” Proska said.“He’s a good fighter, who wins on points. He'll be a tough fight. I'm happy to get that kind of fight. I have a lot of respect for him. But the respect will end at the time we go to the ring. I can't wait to fight.”

Co-Feature:

Friday’s 10-round co-feature will pit undefeated Middleweight Patrick Teixeira (19-0, 17 KOs) of Brazil against Florida’s “Magic” Marcus Willis (13-2-2, 3 KOs). Teixeira scored a first-round knockout win over Luis Acevedo in his last fight, while Willis is looking to build momentum following an eight-round majority decision win over James de la Rosa.

the Roast says:

the Roast says:

On the other hand, that Ajose-Lundy fight ought to be fun until Hank gets Hammered into the canvas.

teaser says:

wasn't such a bad fight after all...wish mora would have thrown the right more often...and proska...who is he trying to fool ?...he is no martinez and looks foolish (and worst ineffective) trying to fight hands down and moving around like no one can hit him... no wonder ggg knocked him out ...needs to get down to fundamentals or get embarrassed again
