Javier Fortuna Crushes Mario Beltre in Two Rounds

By Francisco Salazar

Former world champion Javier Fortuna crushed Mario Beltre in two rounds of action at the Hotel Jaragua in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

In a lightweight contest, Fortuna (32-1-1, 23 KOs) started fast with big power shots -as is his trademark - and dropped Beltre (16-3, 9 KOs) in the first round. He closed the show in the second with a vicious body shot.

"This is a stay-busy fight for Javier until we finalize something significant later this year," Lewkowicz told BoxingScene.com.

Fortuna, who was born in nearby La Romana, has now won his last three fights since losing to Jason Sosa on June 24 of last year. Those other two victories were against Marlyn Cabrera and Omar Douglas.

The Douglas fight occurred on Nov. 12.

Beltre, who resides in San Pedro de Macoris, was 2-2 in his last four bouts. His recent loss was against Joel Diaz on Nov. 19.

Bantamweight contender Norberto Jimenez stopped Donny Garcia in nine rounds.

Jimenez (27-8-4, with 15 KOs) is unbeaten in his last 28 bouts, a span of over six years. Garcia (16-2, 5 KOs) only had one victory over a fighter with a winning record.

In a battle of hard-hitting light heavyweights, Felix Valera (15-1, with 13 KOs) put away Andy Perez (20-6, with 19 KOs) in three rounds.

Unbeaten junior lightweight Abrahan Nova (6-0, 5 KOs) will square off against Andres Zapata (7-1, 5 KOs) in a eight round bout.

Unbeaten junior welterweight Alberto Puello (12-0, with 7 KOs) stopped former fringe contender Patrick Lopez (24-8, with 15 KOs) in seven rounds.
