Meza-Clay headlines ESPN Friday Night Fights

The May 15 edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights presented by Corona Extra and ESPN Deportes’ Noche de Combates presentado por Corona Extra will feature undefeated, up-and-coming lightweight Reynaldo “El Maestro” Ojeda (16-0, 9 KOs) and veteran Monty Meza-Clay (36-4, 22 KOs) in the 10-round main event. Friday’s show from the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, Conn., will air live at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2, broadband Spanish-language ESPN Deportes+ and WatchESPN. ESPN Deportes will televise Friday’s fights on Saturday, May 16, at 8 p.m. The card is presented by 50 Cent’s SMS Promotions and DiBella Entertainment.

"Monty Meza-Clay is an offensive fighter that throws a lot of punches,” Ojeda said. “He comes all the way forward, that's his main goal. He's a person that really talks a lot inside the ring to get the other fighter confused. But we're ready. We're ready to go all the way.”
