We are now down to the little guys, Little? not really this is the division that save boxing. You maybe wondering who? Well Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather was the studs in this division when they were still younger. Will Javier Fortuna and Ivan Velasquez make the same impression, only time will tell. Fight is Scheduled tomorrow 9/29/2015 at Palms Casino and Resort, Pearl Theater, Las Vegas, Nevada
Current WBA Superfeatherweight champ Javier Fortuna 28 wins 0 lost 20 by KO will go up against Carlos Ivan Velasquez 19-1-0 (12 KO) . To be honest this is nothing like Wilder VS Duhaupas because the champ this time will be shorter. Fortuna is just 5’5 and has a reach of 68 1/2 inches while Velasquez is 5’9 with a reach of 70 inches. Fortuna has shown he can come back from a knock down on the other hand Velasquez must be careful because he has been KO’ed before by a lesser opponent.
Here is a highlight reel of Javier Fortuna:
