Double shot of Philly Boxing Tonight. Tevin Farmer on ESPN, Tyrone Brunson on CBS

It’s a double shot of Philly boxing tonight. Two fights on two networks televising two careers trending in opposite directions. All it takes is one impressive showing to open new doors.

Local product Tevin Farmer (18-4-1, 4 ko’s) will kick things off by opening this week’s edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights. The “American Idol” travels to the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut to face undefeated Angel “El Gato” Luna (10-0-1, 6 ko’s) in an 8-round junior lightweight contest. On the other side of the country, North Philly’s Tyrone Brunson (22-4-1, 21 ko’s) gets a final shot at glory when he takes on Ireland’s Dennis Hogan (20-0-1, 7 ko’s) in a 10 round Jr. Middleweight match up on the CBS Sports Network from the Grand Casino in Hinckley, Minnesota.

After a rough start to his career, Farmer is riding the wave of an 11 fight win streak. Since teaming up with Club 1957 management, he has rebooted his career to the point where Star Boxing saw enough to sign him to a promotional contract. Since then, Farmer has taken his show on the road with his three most recent wins coming outside of his home base of Philadelphia. The run has some believing that the southpaw has the potential to compete against upper level competition.

Luna, a former officer in the Dominican Navy, is facing his first opponent with a winning record. His undefeated record looks nice on paper but tonight it is time to scratch beneath the surface and see how he reacts against a fighter who is coming to win. At the moment, the 25-year-old is a bit of a mystery. The world will know a whole lot more come Saturday.

After the Farmer – Luna fight – flip the switch over to CBS to check in on boxing’s triumphant return to free, network television. The main event is full of sub plots. It has been a long, twisted journey in the boxing world for Tyrone “Young Gun” Brunson. The North Philly native started his career by setting a world record – knocking out his first 19 opponents in the first round. The latest chapter will read that he travels to Hinckley, Minnesota take part in the main event of the second live boxing show on CBS since the 1990’s.

Don’t get it twisted, the purpose of this bout is to showcase Dennis “Hurricane” Hogan who is being put in a prime opportunity to cash in on American love for exciting Irish fighters. Promoter Greg Cohen has gone to great lengths to put this boxing card on TV for free in front of a worldwide audience. Hogan is the promotional backed boxer and clear favorite in this contest.

As the world knows, Brunson started out red-hot. But once it was revealed that his record was paper thin, things got real in a hurry. Without going into specifics, the facts show that Brunson is 3-4-1 in his last 8 bouts. While that is average at best, there are some who still believe that he has special talent. Those who have spent time in camps with “Young Gun” testify to how he would barrel through fighters like Andy Lee, Ronald Hearns, and Kassim Ouma in sparring sessions. Boxing is a fickle sport and most only remember your last fight. This is likely Brunson’s last chance to do something big in a meaningful situation in the ring.

Overall it is good spotlight for two who have dedicated their lives to the sport of boxing. In the ESPN bout, Farmer weighed in at 130 lbs while Luna checked in at 128.25 LBS. In Minnesota, Hogan weighed in at 153.5 lbs vs. while Brunson scaled out at 153 lbs. What are your thoughts on these contests?
