Friday Night Fights: Fortuna overweight, loses interim WBA belt on scales

Javier Fortuna was overweight on the scales, forfeiting his interim WBA featherweight title for tomorrow night's Friday Night Fights, but his bout with Miguel Zamudio is still a go.

Dominican prospect/contender Javier Fortuna won't have the interim WBA featherweight title to defend on tomorrow night's edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights, but the unbeaten 23-year-old will still face Miguel Zamudio in the main event.

Zamudio (25-1-1, 13 KO) can win the belt by winning the fight, but Fortuna (21-0, 15 KO) can only stay unbeaten and then move on. Fortuna originally came in at 127 pounds, one over the limit, and could only get down to 126.8. Zamudio came in at 125.4.

In the main undercard bout, John Jackson (15-1, 14 KO) and Cerresso Fort (16-0-1, 11 KO) are good to go for their six-round fight. Jackson came in at 154.2 pounds, with Fort at 155.
