Fortuna loses WBA title on the scale

WBA interim World featherweight champion Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna (21-0, 15 KOs) initially weighed 127. He returned after approximately two hours and weighed 126.8. Fortuna automatically loses his title on the scale due to not making the 126 pound limit for the featherweight division! Mexico’s Miguel “Mikol” Zamudio (25-1-1, 13 KOs) weighed 125.4. Zamudio will win the title if he wins the fight on Friday night at the Tropicana Casino & Resort in Atlantic City.

John Jackson 154.2 vs. Cerresso Fort 155
Jonathan Batista 147.6 vs. Emmanuel Lartei Lartey 144.6
Dean Burrell 137.2 vs. Vernon Alston 135.6
Anthony Young 147 vs. Rafael Montalvo 145.4
