Fortuna vs Cuellar in Talks For April/May Showdown

By Jhonny Gonzalez

According to promoter Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing, Javier Fortuna may possibly defend his interim- featherweight championship of the World Boxing Association (WBA) against Argentine fighter Jesus Andres Cuellar in March or April next year in Argentina. Cuellar has impressive record of 22 wins, with a loss and 18 wins by knockout. Fortuna is unbeaten in 21 fights, with 15 knockouts. He won the title earlier this month in Las Vegas with a twelve round decision over Irishman Patrick Hyland on the Pacquiao-Marquez undercard at the MGM Grand.
