Then on the following Friday, February 10, Brooklyn's Paulie "The Magic Man" Malignaggi (20-0, 5 KO's) will be back in the ring on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights, challenging Donald Camarena (16-1, 9 KO's) for his WBC Continental Americas Super Lightweight Championship at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.
The "Magic Man" shoots for his 21st straight conquest as he returns to the Friday Night Fights stage where he has been an impressive performer in the past. In his last Friday Nights Fights performance on March 3, 2003, he knocked out Kevin Watts (18-2, 7 KO's) in devastating fashion. In his last bout on August 25 at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City, Malignaggi from Bensonhurst, put away the tough-minded Jeremy Yelton scoring an eight round unanimous victory.
The co-featured attraction will pit Ghana's Emmanuel Clottey (23-6, 14 KO's) against Emanuel Augustus (31-25-6, 16 KO's) in what is expected to be an action packed and hotly contested super lightweight affair. "Sleek" Clottey now fights out of the Bronx, and hopes to continue his assault on the 140 pound division. Augustus, now fighting out of Brownsville, Texas is known for his upset performances and his legendary "Fight of the Year" match up with Micky Ward in 2001, will look to add another upset to his resume.
The ESPN2 "Friday Night Fights" broadcast is slated for 9:00PM ET/6:00PM PT.
