True to his customary form the 30-year-old Fortuna from La Romana, Dominican Republic and now fighting out of Braintree, Massachusetts, came out attacking from the opening bell. He landed a blitz of powerful lefts and rights to the head of Lozada, culminating in a left to the head for a quick knockdown near the end of the opening frame.

Normally an aggressive pressure fighter, 31-year-old Lozada seemed overwhelmed by the hand speed of Fortuna, who boxed and slugged with equal dominance. Fortuna switched from all-out brawling to technically picking apart Lozada from rounds two through five, landing sharp counter punches and strong opening lefts and rights.

In round six, Fortuna caught Lozada with another haymaker and this time didn't let him off the hook. After a sustained two-fisted assault on the dazed but still coherent Lozada, referee Gerard White waved off the bout at 2:34.

Fortuna sustained a small cut from an accidental headbutt above the right eye in round one, but it was not a factor. Fortuna threw 316 punches and landed 107 according to CompuBox. Lozada threw 292 and landed just 45.

Today's fighters have "MAYWEATHERITIS" they don't want to compete & become the best fighter in their division!! They want to be rich & talk alot of BS. I recall when fighters let their fists do all the talking...HAGLER, DURAN,JULIAN JACKSON,MIKE…
