Arreola vs. Abell this Friday night

Former heavyweight challenger Chris Arreola (29-2, 25 KOs, World Boxing Council (WBC) #5, IBF #7), who slugged it out with Vitali Klitschko for the world title 16 months ago, and undefeated lightweight prospect Mike Dallas Jr. (17-0-1, 7 KOs, WBC #21) are featured in scheduled 10-round, co-main events on ESPN's Friday Night Fights at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT on ESPN2. The card is presented by Goossen Tutor Promotions.

Joe Tessitore and Teddy Atlas will be ringside at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. where Arreola, of nearby Riverside and coming off a 12-round unanimous-decision win against Manuel Quezada, will take on southpaw knockout artist Joey Abell (27-4, 26 KOs). The Coon Rapids, Minn. native has won eight straight fights coming in.

Dallas, the pride of Bakersfield, Calif. riding back-to-back KO wins, will take on his toughest test to date when he faces Riverside’s Josesito Lopez (28-3, 1 ND, 16 KOs, WBC #8, IBF #10), who is on a six-bout winning streak, in a battle for a vacant light welterweight title.

Studio host Brian Kenny will present the latest boxing news. Friday will also feature Holt McCallany from the FX original series Lights Out.
