Fortuna destroys Zamudio in first round

After losing his WBA interim featherweight title on the scales, unbeaten Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (22-0, 16 KOs) needed just 68 seconds to annihilate Miguel “Mikol” Zamudio (25-2-1, 13 KOs) on Friday night at the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City. Fortuna brutally dropped Zamudio twice. Zamudio was down for several minutes and taken out on a stetcher after being leveled by a left hook.

Jr. middleweight John “Dah Rock” Jackson (16-1, 14 KOs) scored a one-sided eight round unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Cerresso Fort (16-1-1, 11 KOs). Game effort by Fort, but Jackson, the son of former world champion Julian Jackson, prevailed by scores of 79-73, 79-73, 77-75.

In a clash of unbeaten welterweights, Emmanuel Lartei Lartey (15-0-1, 7 KOs) won a six round unanimous decision over Jonathan Batista (13-1, 6 KOs) by scores of 59-55, 59-56, 60-54.
