“Friday Night Fights” Premiere – January 6th, Key West
By Alec Kohut, Max Boxing (Nov 29, 2011) Special to Doghouse Boxing
A DiBella press release did state that the main event of the 2012 “FNF” premiere will feature super middleweights Dyah Davis vs. Alfonso Lopez. Davis rebounded from a lackluster loss to Aaron Pryor late in 2010 to upset then-undefeated Marcus Johnson in April and establish himself as a true prospect.

After building a record of 21-0, mostly in Texas, Lopez earned national recognition for his effort in a majority decision loss to Kelly Pavlik on the Manny Pacquiao - Shane Mosley undercard last May. If Lopez can find a way to cut off the ring and get inside on the taller Davis, this could be a great fight. If either man wants to be considered a true contender at 168, he has to find a way to win this fight convincingly.
The other scheduled match-up is between undefeated up-and-comers Steven Martinez and Jonathan Cepeda. Both stand at 11-0, with Cepeda holding 10 KOs to Martinez’s nine. It’s hard to know what to expect as neither fighter has faced anything close to stiff competition. Cepeda has built his record in the South while Martinez has had easy opposition brought to him in the Northeast.
