Fortuna stops Lorenzo in three

By Robert Coster

Former WBA interim featherweight champion Javier Fortuna stopped Francisco Lorenzo in three rounds and paved the way for his next fight on the undercard of the upcoming Martinez-Cotto showdown. Fortuna (24-0-1, 18 KOs) totally overwhelmed Lorenzo (39-13, 17 KOs), knocking him down in the third round and forcing the veteran boxer to quit on his stool. The bout was held in the jr lightweight class.

In another fight, up-and-coming Julio De Jesus (20-1, 19 KOs) won the WBA Latino jr Welterweight crown with a fourth round stoppage of countryman Abraham Peralta (12-3, 10 KOs).

The card was held at the Pedro Julio Nolasco Coliseum in La Romana, Dominican Republic and presented by Sampson Productions and Manguita Promotions.
