After a shallow month of boxing capped off by a somewhat disappointing Devon Alexander vs. Timothy Bradley mega-fight, February will take similar steps in featuring another significant middle-of-the-month fight in Nonito Donaire vs. Fernando Montiel.
Donaire has been sitting atop pound-for-pound lists for almost two years and is one of the boxing's most exciting fighters. He will be taking on Fernando Montiel, another pound-for-pound star ranked No. 1 in the bantamweight division.
Both went undefeated in 2010; every fight won by knockout.
Other must-win fights will feature Eddie Chambers and Arthur Abraham.
It will be very important that they come back strong against their opponents. Chambers was knocked out by Wladimir Klitschko in March, and Abraham is riding a two-fight losing streak after being shutout by Carl Froch in the third round of the Super-Six Middleweight Tournament.
Friday Night Fights will also be continuing to deliver quality fights. Fighters featured this month include Sergio Mora and Fernando Guerrero.
