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.
