Jason Sosa Drills Javier Fortuna in Eleventh, Grabs WBA Title

Jason Sosa pulled off a shocker by knocking out undefeated champion Javier Fortuna in the eleventh round to capture the WBA super featherweight world title in a fight held in Beijing, China.

Sosa (19-4-1, 15 KOs) put away Fortuna (29-1-1, 21 KOs) with a right hook that stopped the champion in his tracks, and then he followed it with a left that sent him to the canvas, and although Fortuna stood up on his feet and beat the count he was clearly hurt and his legs were not under him, so the referee stopped the fight.

It was the second defense for Fortuna after retaining the belt last September against Carlos Velazquez.


The event was part of the activities of the General Board Meeting of of the WBA. Sosa, who was coming off a draw with Jamaica's Nicholas Walters from last December.

In the co-featured attraction, Nehomar Cermeno (24-5-1, 13 KOs) of Venezuela picked up the WBA super bantamweight world title with a knockout of Jun Qui Xiao (20-3, 9 KOs) in the twelfth and final round.

[QUOTE=ELHURACAN58;16812426]The guy prob isnt even puerto rican, and if he is he's probably ghetto trash. Real ricans dont even call dominicans "simios", thats a word only mexicans use. Now, "yoleros" is a common word used by ricans when badmouthing dominicans.:boxing:[/QUOTE]…

[QUOTE=285Kid;16813202] the headbutt at 0:40[/QUOTE] Definitely looked like a headbutt. This needs to be reviewed. If a film actually exists.

There is not a single link on the entire internet for this fight? What the hell. Feels like 1994 reading boxing results in the newspaper or the next issue of Ring Magazine.
