Photos: Jason Sosa Gets Off The Deck, Stops Javier Fortuna

Sosa (19-4-1, 15 KOs), who dropped the champion in the tenth, put away Fortuna (29-1-1, 21 KOs) with a right hook that stopped him right in his tracks, and then he followed it with a left that sent him to the canvas in the eleventh, 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.

At the time of the stoppage, Fortuna was up on all three cards 95-92, 94-93 and 96-91.

The fatal eleventh round witnessed Fortuna caught by Sosa’s all-out attack and badly dropping near his corner for the second time. Though barely regaining his feet, the ref wisely saw him unfit to go on with shaky legs and then declared a dramatic stoppage for the jubilant new titlist.

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

Fortuna lost all respect for Sosa when they signed the fight, I think. He never fought like that before, hands down, lazy left, but Sosa didn't go away. Sosa doesn't have the speed, the style, or the power that Verdejo…

fortuna went to complain about the headbut and got touched up.. he turned his back earlier in the fight from a low blow but the ref didnt stop it then either... raul ciaz sr wasnt giving the dominican any break…
