Photos: Javier Fortuna Gets Dropped, Defeats Omar Douglas

The opening bout of the Premier Boxing Champions telecast saw former world champion Javier Fortuna (31-1-1, 22 KOs) survive an early knockdown to come back and earn a unanimous decision over previously unbeaten Omar Douglas (17-1, 12 KOs) in their 10-round lightweight match.

Douglas got off to the better start, connecting with a straight left hand late in the first round that buckled the knees of Fortuna and sent him to the canvas.

Fortuna recovered nicely however, and used his movement and combination punching to fluster the less experienced Douglas. Fighting primarily out of the southpaw stance, Fortuna used his jab and followed up with flurries that score consistently.

Douglas tried to be patient and counter, but too often it led to the fighters getting tangled up instead of inflicting damage.

The former champion connected at will on Douglas for much of the round, staggering him near the ropes with successive hooks. Douglas stayed on his feet but was unable to mount enough offense as all three judges gave the final round to Fortuna. In the end, the judges scored the bout 96-93 twice and 95-94 for Fortuna.

Loved the fight. Did not like fortunas hands at his waist nor his habit of throwing punches without protecting his chin.When he boxed he was doing an amazing job though.I hope for the sosa rematch he keeps his hands up…

I don't know if it's evolution or what, but Fortuna has changed and I don't think for the better. The commentator noticed how he keeps his hands down, he didn't do that before. He was more technically sound and didn't…

Sosa def took something away from Fortuna..It's only his second fighy since losing his title, but to get dropped again?? He may be a bit hesitant to fire off like he used To
