For anyone looking to cap off Valentine's Day with a bang, ESPN2 might have what you're looking for and with local flavor.

Edgewood resident and professional boxer Emanuel "The Tranzforma" Taylor is scheduled to fight Chris Algieri in a 10-round junior welterweight main event, live on ESPN2 Friday Night Fights, Feb. 14.

The fight is one of six on the card to be held at The Paramount in Huntington, N.Y. First bell is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Taylor, 17-1 with 12 knockouts as a pro, is ranked No. 4 in the world in the junior welterwight division by the International Boxing Federation. Taylor has knocked out his past two opponents and his lone loss came with a questionable split decision.

Prior to turning pro, Taylor racked up a record of 186-26, winning numerous national and regional tournaments.
