WBA Super feather weight title fight
At first glance it looked like a great fight because Velasquez seemed poised enough to dethrone the champ, however he was only good for round 1.
Second round started and Fortuna delivered a knock down as he was able to connect a punch behind the left ear of Velasquez that floored him.
Round Three – The Champ went guns blazing, unleashing a series of combination that busted the nose of the challenger.
Round 4 to 8 it was pretty much the same story with Fortuna dictating where the fight goes and the challenger just kept coming forward but not throwing enough because he felt the champ’s power.
Round 9 – Velasquez was heavily breathing through his mouth due to the busted nose. Fortuna was just seizing up the challenger and when it was already 1 min and 30 seconds remaining on the round, Fortuna started putting combination that almost dazed the challenger a number of times but was able to survive.
During the break, Velasquez’s corner was asking him if they are going to proceed to round 10, he also urge the fighter to punch and move around otherwise they might be force to stop the fight.
Round 10 – Fortuna didn’t waste any time and started playing around with Velasquez as if he was boxing a kid to victory, yes that’s how ugly it was because even though Velasquez didn’t go down he isn’t defending properly as the referee stopped in to stop the fight and stop the rampage of the Champ.
Fight ended in the 35th second of the10th round. The Champ Javier “Bumblebee” Fortuna improved to 29 wins no losses with 21 via KO, the challenger Carlos Ivan Velasquez fall to 19-2 with 12 KO.
