Mirror staff reports:

Federal Way heavyweight boxer "Vicious" Vincent Thompson will fight on ESPN's Friday Night Fights.

Friday’s co-feature will pit heavyweights Thompson (10-0, 2 KOs) against Joell “Joe Slick” Godfrey (14-6-1, 6 KOs).

The undefeated Thompson won a unanimous decision over Jonte Willis on Nov. 5 after a controversial main event in Battle at the Boat 84 — and cemented his case as one of the Northwest's best heavyweights. Tennessee’s Godfrey won a six-round unanimous decision over Leo Bercier in his last fight.

Former lightweight title challenger Ji-Hoon “Volcano” Kim (23-7, 18 KOs) will meet undefeated lightweight Alisher “Ali” Rahimov (23-0, 12 KOs) in the 10-round main event May 25 on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights presented by Corona Extra.

Friday’s show will air at 6 p.m. Pacific time (9 p.m. Eastern) on ESPN2 HD, ESPN Deportes, and ESPN3 from St. Charles, MO. The card is presented by Banner Promotions.
