Fortuna is exciting and a great natural athlete type boxer - unorthodox etc but his punch tolerance isnt cut out for more than the 130lb div. He reminds me of Juanma a bit how he takes too many hard shots…

I'm a Fortuna fan but that bs is why Dominicans don't move up just like Guzman. And he wants to blame the weather, homy come correct and not a lame ass excuse like that. Damn, unprofessional mofo. I won't feel…

I think Mikey's daddy is going to totally overwhelm Fortuna... Easter has even been showing improved punching power.
