Javier Fortuna-Miguel Zamudio: April 19th at The Tropicana

Tickets start at $40 and go on sale today (Tuesday, April 2) at 5 pm ET for the Friday, April 19, 2013, "Fortuna vs. Zamudio", a night of world-championship professional boxing being presented by Sampson Boxing at the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City and live on ESPN Friday Night Fights.

In the night's main event, La Romana, Dominican Republic's dynamic Javier "El Abejon" Fortuna (21-0, 15 KOs) will defend his interim WBA World featherweight title against Sinaloa, Mexico's Miguel "Mikol" Zamudio (25-1-1, 13 KOs) in an intriguing 12-round clash.

This will be the first title defense for the always exciting Fortuna, who won the crown last December against Ireland's Patrick Hyland via 12-round decision. 

Also scheduled for televised battle are St. Thomas, Virgin Islands' promising, once-beaten John "Dah Rock" Jackson (15-1, 14 KOs) and St. Paul, Minnesota's undefeated "Sir" Cerresso Fort (16-0-1, 11 KOs), who will lock up in a six-round junior middleweight war.

Completing the televised tripleheader will be Ghana's Emmanuel Lartei Lartey (14-0-1, 7 KOs) taking on the Dominican Republic's Jonathan Batista (13-0, 6 KOs) in a six/eight-round welterweight battle of undefeateds.

Sampson Boxing President, Sampson Lewkowicz, says he's excited to be bringing an event like this to the Tropicana.

"This is going to be a great show. We have a world-championship fight in the main event between a Dominican and a Mexican, so that will be very exciting and the two supporting bouts are between top up-and-coming fighters. It's a terrific night of boxing and I'm very happy to be able to bring it to a world-class casino like the Tropicana."

After 5 pm today, tickets for "Fortuna vs. Zamudio" will be available at all Ticketmaster outlets, Ticketmaster.com, by calling 1-800-745-3000 or at the Tropicana box office on fight night.

Four other bouts featuring local favorites are also scheduled and will be announced shortly. On fight night, doors open @ 6:30 pm and the first fight is at 7:00. The Tropicana Casino & Resort is located at 2831 Boardwalk in Atlantic City.

[QUOTE=Matty Ice;13207722]Now that I think about it, he has gone 10 like twice before. But I think he actually started slowing down vs Hyland around the mid rounds. Before the fight I didn't like the idea of fighting at 126…

[quote=DoktorSleepless] Don't get why Sampson got him the WBA interim belt when he'll never get a chance at Chris John. It's only detrimental because having a belt doesn't allow him to move up the rankings of other orgs so he…
