The February 6 edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights features Sergio “The Latin Snake” Mora (27-3-2, 9 KOs) and Abie “The Sun City Warrior” Han (23-1, 14 KOs) in the 12-round middleweight main event. The card was originally supposed to feature Jermain Taylor defending his new middleweight title against Mora, but we all know the sad saga there.

Friday’s show from Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Miss., will air live at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2 and is presented by DiBella Entertainment. The weigh-ins for the card were held today and you can find the full weigh-in results here

Main Event:

Los Angeles’ Mora—who won the first season of the reality series The Contender in 2004-05 before winning the WBC junior middleweight title in 2008—is coming off an eight-round unanimous decision win over Dashon Johnson.

“My trainer took a look at Han. He reminds us a lot of an opponent we fought before named Archak TerMeliksetian,” Mora said. “He’s tall, but he doesn’t fight tall. He fights compact and throws very strong, compact punches. He’s got a great record, so we can’t take him for granted.”

Han, of Texas, has won four fights in a row, including his last, a 10 round majority decision win over Marco Reyes.

“It’s an honor to fight someone of Mora’s caliber,” Han said. “He is a former world champion. He’s very smart and he’s a veteran of the game of boxing. I’m looking forward to the challenge. I feel, come the 6th, I will have to be on my A-game. I feel like if I am on my A-game, I can pull off the upset.”

Co-Feature:

Friday’s eight-round co-feature will pit undefeated junior middleweight Erickson “Hammer” Lubin (8-0, 6 KOs) against a yet-to-be-determined opponent after Lubin’s original opponent dropped out due to a failed medical test. In his last bout, Florida’s Lubin scored an eight-round unanimous decision win over veteran Norberto Gonzalez.
