Javier Fortuna-Jose Carmona Set For October 19th
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Former WBA Interim Featherweight Champion and current WBC #8-ranked super featherweight contender Javier "El Abejon" Fortuna (22-0-1, 16 KOs) will face Colombian veteran Jose Carmona (22-3, 12 KOs) on Saturday, October 19, at the Palacio de los Deportes in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

The power-punching super featherweights will meet in the main event of a historic night of boxing, presented by promoters Sampson Lewkowicz of Sampson Boxing and Cesar Mercedes of Manguita Promociones, that will also feature no less than three women's world championship fights.

24-year-old Fortuna, from La Romana, Dominican Republic, will be looking to rebound from the only blotch on his professional record, a draw with extremely capable former Olympian Luis Franco in August of this year. Fortuna lost his interim title on the scale last April before destroying challenger Miguel Zamudio by way of terrifying knockout.

24-year-old Carmona won the WBA Fedebol featherweight title earlier this year with unanimous deicsion over Gustavo Sandoval. He is currently riding a four-fight winning streak.

Also that night in separate 10-round bouts, three different women from Santo Domingo: IBF Female Featherweight World Champion Daihana Santana (32-6, 14 KOs), IBF Female Super Bantamweight Champion Katy Pamela "La Super Baby" Wilson (18-1, 11 KOs), and former women's super-bantamweight world champion Marilyn "La Cachorrita" Hernandez (24-9, 15 KOs) will either defend or challenge for world championships.

Scheduled for the undercard are Santo Domingo's undefeated WBA Fedelatin Bantamweight Champion Jonathan Guzman (14-0, 14 KOs); undefeated Santo Domingo super featherweight KO artist Braulio "El Chavo" Rodriguez (14-0, 14 KOs), as well as several other local favorites.

Further opponents will be announced shortly.
