Multiple sources have advised that hard-punching featherweight contender Javier Fortuna (20-0, 15KOs) is going to see action on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez undercard on December 8th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Fortuna will reportedly face unbeaten Irish boxer Patrick Hyland (27-0, 12KOs) - and the fight will very likely be part of the HBO pay-per-view.

As reported earlier, Celestino Caballero vacated his WBA "regular" featherweight title. Sources in Panama have indicated to BoxingScene that Fortuna-Hyland will potentially have the vacant interim-WBA belt at stake.
