Fortuna, Rodriguez, Rosa, Del Valle make weight

Las Vegas, NV (5/30/14) - All of the fighters for tomorrow night's HBO Latino double-header weighed in earlier today in Las Vegas. The card is promoted by DiBella Entertainment and Sampson Boxing, in association with Right Hook Promotions and will take place at the beautiful newly renovated Tropicana Resort in Las Vegas, NV.  The card which will air on HBO Latino network, as well the HBO2 service with English language commentary at 12 midnight (ET/PT), is headlined by former world champion Javier Fortuna (24-0-1, 18KO's) taking on Juan Antonio Rodriguez (26-4, 23KO's) in a 10-round super featherweight match-up.  In the highly anticipated co-feature top-rated super bantamweight contender Luis "Orlandito" Del Valle (18-1, 13KO's) will look to take a major step toward repositioning himself back among the elite of the 122lb. division when he faces highly regarded undefeated prospect Luis Rosa (16-0, 7KO's) in a 10-round super bantamweight showdown.

 

Also appearing on the card in a special attraction 10-round middleweight bout will be former WBA junior middleweight world champion and "The Contender" champion, WBA #10-rated Sergio "The Latin Snake" Mora (25-3-2, 8 KOs) taking on once-beaten Samuel Rogers (14-1, 8 KOs).
