Javier Fortuna vs. Carlos Velasquez: Winner, Recap and Reaction Javier Fortuna made a successful first defense of his WBA World super featherweight title on Tuesday, knocking down challenger Carlos Velasquez in the second round en route to a 10th-round TKO victory at the Palms Casino's Pearl Concert Theater in Las Vegas.

This was Fortuna's seventh consecutive victory after fighting Luis Franco to a 10-round draw in August 2013, the only minor blemish on his ledger in an otherwise perfect career. Fortuna (29-0-1, 21 KOs) earned his WBA belt with a unanimous-decision victory over Bryan Vasquez in May.

The Dominican boxer wasn't quite as impressive as he was in his last bout. Boxer Sergio Mora offered his take on Fortuna:

Fortuna reminds me of Sam Soliman: Hard to watch & hard to beat.

SaturdayNightBoxing.com's Adam Abramowitz felt Vasquez could beat the version of Fortuna seen on Tuesday:

This is the Fortuna I expected in the Vasquez fight. Vasquez could have beaten this guy.
