^thanks ndizzle. Biggest Thai fight in a while. I recommend it. Saenchai is one of the best kickfighters in the world and Kongsak is a worthy opponent.Week of July 9th 2011:Boxing:Jessie Vargas vs Walter Estrada
Vargas is an up-and-coming, Roger Mayweather-trained, undefeated Mexican-American light welterweight. He faces Estrada, a Colombian journeyman coming up from Lightweight with a recent win over Nate Campbell. This might be a taste of things to come in Rios/Antillos with the young undefeated Mexican-American prospect going up against an older fighter looking to make it a brawl.Lucien Bute vs Jean Paul Mendy
Bute is, according to a lot of websites, the #1 Super Middleweight in the world, but he doesn't face the best competition. This fight is no different. Mendy isn't a scrub but he isn't in the top 10. Chris Arreola vs Friday Ahunanya
From the Williams-Lara non-televised undercard. Two heavyweights known for their appearances on Friday Night Fights clash. Arreola is in better shape than ever and looks to show he's ready for the big fights again as he faces Nigerian journeyman Ahunanya. Jhonny Gonzalez vs Tomas Villa
From the same card, Gonzalez, a top 5 featherweight takes on Tomas Villa, a mid-tier Mexican fighter. There's a spoiler in the title if you care about those things. Akifumi Shimoda vs Rico Ramos Part 1Part 2
