Karl Dargan headlining ESPN FNF on January 30
- Updated: January 5, 2015
The January 30 edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights will be headlined by the lightweight clash between Karl Dargan (17-0, 9 KOs) and Tony Luis (18-2, 7 KOs), which takes place at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
In the co-feature, Thomas Falowo (12-3, 8 KOs) will take on Russell Lamour (11-0, 5 KOs) in an eight-round middleweight bout. Tickets, priced at $75, $60 and $45 are already on sale at the Foxwoods box office.
“We’re very excited to be working with ESPN and with Foxwoods again. Dargan had a big 2014 and we expect 2015 to be even bigger. With this fight, he’ll have another opportunity to pick up a regional title and move up in the lightweight rankings, but it won’t be easy. Tony Luis will press the action so Dargan will have to fight. On a national platform like ESPN, a big win in an explosive fight can catapult the winner to stardom. Both of these fighters understand that, so I expect a great fight on January 30th.”
Dargan’s fight with Luis will be his first on a FNF telecast, but is coming off of a nationally televised knockout win against Angino Perez on NBC.
