Lorenzo calls out Fortuna

By Robert Coster

Tough former junior lightweight contender Francisco Lorenzo (39-12, 17 Kos) has called out to ex WBA interim featherweight champion Javier Fortuna not to face openly gay Puerto Rican boxer Orlando Cruz in La Romana, Dominican Republic, scheduled for March 10th. “Javier, I’m calling on you to fight a real man, not some gay guy. The Dominican people don’t want to see that. So, I propose — fight ME!” clamors Lorenzo, a grizzled 42-year-old veteran that has faced eight world champions in his career and is reputed for his warrior spirit and iron chin. In 2010, Lorenzo and Fortuna fought to a one round no-contest due to a clash of heads between both boxers. “I want to get Javier Fortuna back in the ring, an all-Dominican affair. Let’s make it at 130 pounds and may the best man win,” concluded Lorenzo.
