No way. Porter and Guerrero? Sweet.

Got Cavs tix the night before, gotta find a way to make this work though.

"ESPN Friday Night Fights" invades Cleveland, OH on February 19th live from the Wolstein Center on the campus of Cleveland State University. The star studded night of boxing will feature the homecoming of 2008 United States Olympic Team member and undefeated professional Shawn "Showtime" Porter in a twelve round main event against Russell Jordan of Rochester, NY for the NABO Jr. Middleweight Title. Cleveland's Porter 12-0 (10 KO's), recently named as one of ESPN's top 20 prospects in the world today, will bring his exciting all action style to the bout against Jordan 15-6 (10 KO's) in the Jr. Middleweight clash. The bout will feature an interesting clash of styles as Porter, who stands 5'7" and is orthodox, will try to impose his will on the taller southpaw Jordan, who stands 6'2".

Also featured on the ESPN broadcast will be rising Welterweight prospect Lanard Lane 10-0 (7 KO’s) from Houston, TX as he squares off with Martin Tucker 7-4 (3 KO’s) from nearby Toledo, OH in an 8 round Jr. Welterweight clash.

The ESPN broadcast will open up with one of the hardest punching prospects in boxing today as Dominic Wade 5-0 (5 KO's) goes toe to toe with Omar Bell 6-1 (4 KO's) of Atlanta, GA in a 6 round Middleweight contest. The heavy fisted Wade, from Largo, MD, will look to keep his knockout streak alive in a bout that promises to be action packed from the opening bell.

This value packed 9 bout card will also feature some of Cleveland and Ohio's greatest boxing prospects. Cleveland's Dante Moore 6-0 (4 KO's) will battle Allentown, PA's Marvin Rivera 4-4-2 (1 KO) in a 6 round Jr. Middleweight bout. Cleveland's amateur standout Wilkins Santiago will also be highlighted as he makes his professional debut Columbus, OH's Troy Nelson in 4 round Middleweight match. Another Cleveland prospect will do battle as Julius Leegrand 2-0 will square off with Toledo's Eric Ricker in a 4 round battle of Lightweights. Youngstown's finest will also be on display as Jake Giuriceo 5-0-1 (2 KO's) will face TBA in a 6 round clash of Jr. Welterweights. Also, Youngstown's Chris Hazimihalis 1-0 (1 KO) will be pitted against Independence, MO's Steven Cox 1-0 (1 KO) in a rare battle of young undefeated Lightweights. Last but not least on this card will be Shawn Porter's undefeated United States Olympic teammate Gary Russell Jr. 6-0 (3 KO's) from Capitol Heights, MD in a 6 round Featherweight bout.

Tickets for ESPN's Friday Night Fights will go on sale Monday, January 11 at 10 AM and start at just $25. Tickets can be purchased at the Wolstein Center's box office, through any Ticketmaster outlet, or the Ticketmaster charge-by-phone. For more information, call 216.687.9292.
