Fortuna, Guzman and Escandon Sign With Al Haymon

By Rick Reeno

BoxingScene.com has been advised that powerful adviser/manager Al Haymon has added three more fighters to his already massive stable.

To continue his non-stop run of acquisitions this year, Haymon has signed up undefeated super featherweight contender Javier Fortuna (25-0-1, 18KOs), super bantamweight slugger Jonathan Guzman (16-0, 16KOs) and super bantamweight contender Oscar Escandon (23-1, 16KOs) of Colombia.

All three are promoted by Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing.

Fortuna has been in action twice this year, with a knockout of Francisco Lorenzo in March and then a ten round decision over Juan Antonio Rodriguez in May. Escandon, who lost a close split decision to Nehomar Cermeno last August, bounced back on August 8th with a sixth round knockout of Julian Evaristo Aristule. Escandon also holds a 2011 knockout win over Jesus Marcelo Andres Cuellar.

Dates are being lined up for Fortuna and Escandon. Guzman will return to action on September 6th, as part of the Kiko Martinez-Carl Frampton undercard at Titanic Quarter in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Escandon is rated at #2 by the WBA and looking to fight champion Scott Quigg. Fortuna is rated at #2 by the WBA and #5 by the WBC at super featherweight, and Guzman is ranked at #13 by the WBA.

Haymon also works with Floyd Mayweather Jr., Adrien Broner, Marcos Maidana, Lucas Matthysse, Danny Garcia, Peter Quillin, Adonis Stevenson, Amir Khan, Omar Figueroa, Leo Santa Cruz, Abner Mares, Chad Dawson, Deontay Wilder, Rances Barthelemy, Robert Guerrero, the Charlo brothers and about 30 other fighters.

I must admit I never saw this coming! Well, that's actually pretty good for Fortuna...don't know too much about Guzman though. For a minute there I thought it was our old friend Guzman...I was thinking Al Haymon was going crazy.
