Tonight From Hard Rock: Pahokee / Belle Glade Boxers a Feel-Good Undercard to ESPN Slugfest

At 9 p.m. tonight, ESPN2 is kicking off an edition of Friday Night Fights with a feature about 20 kids from western Palm Beach County who participate in the Police Athletic League's boxing program.

The youngsters, all from Pahokee and Belle Glade, taped the segment yesterday at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood. That's the site of tonight's live fight, headlined by lightweights Julio Diaz and Victor Manuel Cayo.

The feature will be played both on the cable network and on the arena's big screen.
