By Francisco Salazar

Interim featherweight world title holder Javier Fortuna will fight Miguel Zamudio on April 19th on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights, promoter Sampson Lewkowicz confirmed to BoxingScene.com Wednesday morning.
 
Although earlier reports had the fight taking place in Fortuna's native Dominican Republic, Lewkowicz explained that he is still attempting to secure a location for the fight to take place. That venue and city will probably be in the United States to accomdate ESPN.
 
Fortuna (21-0, 15 KOs) will make the first defense of the WBA interim title he won n December 8th over Patrick Hyland at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV.
 
Fortuna has trained for previous fights alongside Sergio Martinez in Port Hueneme, CA.
 
Hailing from Guasave, Sinaloa, Mexico, Zamudio (25-1-1, 13 KOs) won an eight round split decision over Gilberto Bolanos on December 14th. He is unbeaten in his last 21 bouts in a row since being stopped in the second round by Adrian Young in December of 2009.
 
April 19th will mark the first time Zamudio will be fighting outside of Mexico.
