Vasquez Wants Rematch: Fortuna Just Came To Run

By Victor Salazar

On Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Bryan Vasquez (34-2, 18 KO’s) came up short in his bid to win the vacant WBA junior lightweight title, losing a twelve round decision to undefeated Javier Fortuna. The bout was full of back and forth action but Vasquez feels if Fortuna didn’t move as much, the fight would have been more entertaining and he would have won,

“I feel disappointed of course,” Vasquez told “I tried to fight and not run, this is not my style to run. It didn’t work, I lost the title but I won the crowd. This is my second loss, for me it’s very difficult. I’d love to fight in New York.”

Vasquez hopes that he can secure a rematch with Fortuna and that in the second go around, he actually comes to fight.

“Fortuna has the title now but that title will belong to me,” Vasquez said. “I feel that I should be champion, he just came to run. Its ok he won. I would like to ask him for a rematch to give me an opportunity to do a different preparation to fight him again. I think the result will be completely different.”

[QUOTE=B0XEO;15746314]I don't know about that. Fortuna's 25 and in his absolute prime coming off a great win. At 35 I think Uchi's a little long in the tooth. I say Fortuna beats him.[/QUOTE] Age won't make a difference fortuna is…

Boxing is the art of hit and not be hit.
