Javier Fortuna Decisions Patrick Hyland in a Snoozer

by Rick Reeno

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - In a fight for the WBA's interim-featherweight title, Javier Fortuna (21-0, 15KOs) won a twelve round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Patrick Hyland (27-1, 12KOs). The scores were 118-110, 116-112 and 115-113.

The fight was a snoozer, filled with fouls from both boxers. After eight rounds of Fortuna using little to no effort to outbox Hyland, some action broke out in the ninth after Fortuna started to open up with his power punches and Hyland answered back. The fight went right back to quiet boxing match in the tenth, and more or less continued in the same manner until the final bell. They nearly traded punches after the fight was officially over, as Fortuna landed at least three shots after the gong of the final bell.

Was very impressed with what I saw from Fortuna in his last few fights, didn't catch this fight. I thought it was a credit to Hyland for lasting the distance but instead it was Fortuna carrying him. :lol1:

Fortuna boxed very well nd somewat made it look it easy nd Hyland is a very tought guy to connect on, but Patrick didnt bring that championship mentality nd was to worried about his power to trade wit him, Fortuna…

Fortuna did his job Hyland just didnt come wit the pressure nd disappointed everyone. If Hylland were to man up nd trade a little more or even put more pressure i think he would have got the nod but then…

are you's kidding me, patrick hyland was the only one forcing the fight..he is an outstanding fighter and will most definitely be a world champion very soon...people wrote him off at the start but he proved a lot of people…

They both stunk.It's seems like crusty old Arum went and picked two random bums off the street to pad his pitiful excuse for a card.
