El Paso boxer Antonio Escalante

Tonight (April 24) El Paso super bantamweight Antonio Escalante takes on Gary Stark Jr. in a 12-round affair on ESPN2 at 8:30 p.m. It's a big fight for the 19-2 Escalante, who has good power and has improved his boxing skills in recent months.

He is coming off a injury to his right hand, so it will be interesting to see how things go for him. But Escalante is a talented young fighter and he's getting better and learning new things all the time and his style is worth watching.
