Highly talented featherweight and knockout artist Javier ‘El Abejon’ Fortuna (19-0, 14 KOs) of the Dominican Republic, training under the guidance of former junior welterweight champion Pablo Sarmiento at the Maravilla Box Boxing Gym in Oxnard, California, home of universally recognized middleweight champion Sergio ‘Maravilla’ Martinez (49-2-2, 28 KOs), takes on former IBF featherweight world champion Cristobal ‘Lacandón’ Cruz (39-13-3, 23 KOs) of Mexico on Friday July 6th in a 10-round main event bout on ESPN2’s ‘Friday Night Fights’ live from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada which is being presented by Sampson Boxing and Greg Cohen Promotions.

In his last outing this past April, in a battle of undefeated fighters, the southpaw Fortuna was able to stop Yuandale Evans (16-1, 12 KOs) in one round after sending Evans to the canvas twice in the first round.
