Former World Champion Javier Fortuna Dominates and Stops Antonio Lozada in Six Rounds in FS1 PBC Fight Night Main Event & on FOX Deportes Saturday Night from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles

Former world champion Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (36-2-1, 25 KOs) delivered a dominating performance in stopping Mexican contender Antonio Lozada (40-5-1, 34 KOs) in the sixth round of their lightweight clash Saturday night headlining FS1 PBC Fight Night and on FOX Deportes from STAPLES Center in Los Angeles (full fight video highlights here).

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.

Lightweight Contender Austin Dulay Impresses with Unanimous Decision Over Jose Luis Gallegos

A 10-round lightweight showdown saw 135-pound contender Austin Dulay (14-2, 10 KOs) earn a wide unanimous decision over Jose Luis Gallegos (19-10, 14 KOs).

Representing his hometown of Nashville, Tennessee, the southpaw Dulay used his superior skills, speed and work rate to control most of the action, but the capable Gallegos never made it easy.

Making excellent use of strong straight left hands and uppercuts, 25-year-old Dulay was able to stifle the pressuring style of Gallegos and outwork him in the exchanges. Gallegos was never able to solve Dulay’s quick pot shots from the outside.

As is customary when an orthodox fighter faces a southpaw the fight featured several unintentional headbutts exchanged during the rugged 10 rounds. The one-sided scores were 100-90, 100-90 and 99-91 for Dulay.

Unbeaten Prospect Fernando Molina Cruises to Decision Victory Over Jose Zaragoza

In a six-round lightweight fight, 18-year-old unbeaten prospect Fernando Molina (3-0, 2 KOs) made an impressive U.S. debut by taking a unanimous decision over Jose Zaragoza (5-3-1, 2 KOs).

A decorated amateur, Molina showed good punching power by dropping Zaragoza with a perfectly timed right uppercut in round two and then cruised the rest of the way for the comfortable points win. The 32-year-old Zaragoza came to win and had his occasional moments, but didn’t have the tools to match the speed and ring savvy of Molina.

Through the six rounds, Molina threw 370 punches and landed 107. Zaragoza threw 377 and landed 61. All three judges scored it 60-53.

Oscar Perez KO’s Christian Marron

Houston’s Oscar Perez (2-0, 1 KO) scored a first round knockout over Porterville, California’s Christian Marron (0-1) 1:24 into their welterweight clash.
