Ray Flores Talks Fortuna vs Douglas – Undefeated lightweight prospect Omar Douglas (17-0) will be facing former super featherweight world champion Javier Fortuna (30-1-1) in a 10-round bout this Saturday night at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia. The fight is scheduled to be part of the Premier Boxing Champions on SpikeTV and sits in support of WBC world welterweight champion Danny Garcia’s main event bout against Samuel Vargas.
Douglas is a native of nearby Delaware and he is looking at this fight as a potential breakout for the sports-starved state, one of the smallest in the nation. The well-traveled Fortuna, who fights out of Panama, is looking to net a second win since his disappointing loss to Jason Sosa in Beijing, China back in June of 2016.
