The interaction features live streams that focus on analysis and discussions of live sports event as they happen, a timeline with real-time scores and stats that allows users to interact synchronously with the event; and videos, polling/trivia, and access to information available in numerous ways, all while connected to the social world.

ESPN collaborated with Tapestry, a division of SMG Multicultural, in signing multiple brands as exclusive, yearlong advertisers on ESPN Sync.

Eddie Hunter vs Mike Oliver this Friday night in Chester, PA

This Friday night, Joey Eye in association with David Feldman presents another HUGE Fight Night from Harrah’s Casino in Chester, PA LIVE WORLDWIDE on!

In the Main Event of the evening, Eric “The Outlaw” Hunter (17-2) makes his return to the ring after scoring an upset over previously undefeated Jerry Belmontes (17-0). Hunter has scored 2 straight victories since dropping a controversial DQ to World Title Challenger Luis Franco (7-0). Philadelphia’s Hunter, known for never taking the easy way, will take on the very tough veteran Mike Oliver (25-5) with just 1 week notice!

Oliver, has had a rough 2013 being on the wrong end of 2 highly controversial decisions to Australian’s Billy Dib (36-2) & Joel Brunkner (26-0). Two fights that many thought should have been scored in favor of Oliver. The crafty southpaw Oliver will look to catch the younger Hunter in traps while attempting to confuse him throughout the fight.

Though Oliver is the more experienced and a crafty fighter, the younger Hunter brings the speed and power advantage to the ring. This is a true crossroads fight for both fighters. A win for either man could catapult them into the title picture. While a lose could be the end of Oliver’s career or causing Hunter to start over. Either way a loss will be detrimental to either man’s career.

In the Co-Main Event of the evening, Julio Dejesus (8-3-3) will be squaring off against Hassan Young (3-1-1) on a classic Philadelphia vs. South Jersey showdown. Both men are coming off of impressive victories over rugged journeyman Ariel Duran (7-5-1).

De Jesus vs Young is another big crossroads match LIVE WORLDWIDE on Both men are quality fighters who have not been brought up the easy way and both have points to prove this Friday night. This is a true pick’em fight when it comes down to it. They are undoubtedly the toughest tests in each other’s career. Surely fans watching live and at home can expect fireworks from both men!

Also on the card Anthony Prescott will look to spoil the pro debut of Carlos Moore in a 4 round Welterweight attraction. Richard Irizarry will look to have a successful pro debut against Joshua Arocho (3-7-3) in a 4 round featherweight showdown. Jesus Barbosa will also be making his pro debut against Josue Rivera (1-2). Finally, last but not least, Tyrone Crawely (4-0) will go against an opponent TBA.
