ESPN Friday Night Fights

World-class professional boxing will return to the Frank Erwin Center Friday, April 27 when Roy Jones Jr.’s Square Ring Promotions brings two riveting 10-round feature bouts to be telecast live on ESPN Friday Night Fights. NABF Light Heavyweight Champion Ismayl “The Black Russian” Sillakh will face unbeaten contender Denis “The Pirate” Grachev of Russia. Sillakh, 17-0 with 14 knockouts, is rated No. 2 in the world by the WBC and is the current NABF champion. Danger man Grachev, 11-0-1 with 7 knockouts, is a world champion kickboxer who trains in San Diego.

The co-feature is just as intriguing and competitive as Sillakh-Grachev, with Yuandale “Money Shot” Evans of Cleveland battling Javier Fortuna of the Dominican Republic in a 10-round featherweight bout. Fortuna, 18-0 with 13 knockouts, is the WBC No. 8-rated featherweight, while the globetrotting Evans, 16-0 with 12 knockouts, has scored significant victories in Indonesia and Russia and holds the WBC Youth Championship.

Card is subject to change.
