By Alex Pierpaoli

Four 6 round 155 pound bouts highlight ESPN2's Friday Night Fights this week with the Quarter Final round in the 2015 Boxcino Tournament. In 2014, Boxcino crowned Lightweight and Middleweight Tournament winners and this year they'll be featuring the Junior Middle and Heavyweight divisions. This Friday night, the 13th of February, features Brandon Adams against Alex Perez, Simeon Hardy vs. Vito Gasparyan, Cleotis Pendarvis vs. Ricardo Pinell and Mike Moore vs. Stanislav Skorokhod . The four winners on Friday night will then face off against each other on April 3 for the semi-finals. 

Brandon Adams got to the finals in the middleweight version of the tourney last year, but dropped a unanimous decision there to the champion Willie Monroe Jr. Although all four bouts are well-matched the fighter to watch is Ukraine's Stanislav Skorokhod.
