The latest installment of the Top Rank's  MetroPCS Friday Night Knockout  series on truTV returns this Friday, live from Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn, New York.

Headlining the show, unbeaten light heavyweight contender Seanie Monaghan takes on veteran Donovan 'Don Da Bomb' George in a 10-round clash. Both fighters made weight during Thursday's ceremony, which was held in Monaghan's hometown in the Long Beach section of Long Island, New York.

Monaghan (25-0, 16KOs) checked in at a fighting fit 174.6 lbs. for his third fight of 2015, all of which have taken place in the New York/New Jersey region. George (25-4-2, 22KOs) came in right at the divisional limit of 175 lbs. for his first fight in 14 months. A healthy portion of the layoff stemming from a suspension dealt to the Chicagoland boxer following a failed drug test surrounding his win-turned-No-Contest versus Dyah Davis last August. 

In the televised co-feature, unbeaten welterweight Brad Solomon (25-0, 8KOs) hopes to finally made the long-awaited leap from prospect to contender. Awaiting the Louisiana native at the crossroads in Philly-based Raymond 'Tito' Serrano (21-2, 9KOs).

Solomon weighed in at 146.4 lbs., while Serrano was right at the 147 lb. welterweight limit for their scheduled 10-round bout. Efforts by both fighters to turn the staredown into something more were quickly thwarted as event handlers on stage immediately separated the two combatants.
