Ex-champs Fortuna and Rosario crush foes

Lightweight contender Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (37-3-1, 26 KOs) returned to the ring Sunday night and blew out Rafael Hernandez (32-15-3, 25 KOs) in the first round at the Pabellon de Esgrima, Centro Olimpico, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Fortuna, a former WBA featherweight and super featherweight world champion, dropped Hernandez twice in the one-sided bout. It was Fortuna’s first fight since losing to JoJo Diaz last July.

In the co-feature, former WBC/WBA/IBF super welterweight champion Jeison “Banana” Rosario (22-3-1, 16 KOs) smashed Jesus Perez (12-6-1, 9 KOs) in four rounds. Rosario dropped Perez at the end of round two and got the stoppage in round four.

  • Good for Rosario, get a couple of wins together and then come back to a higher level. Certainly not the best fighter but always fun to watch and I’d still LOVE to see him in there with Hurd.
