Decided to take what I hope to be an excellent executive decision risk, as I have just laid money out on Javier Fortuna stopping Joseph Diaz tonight, due to the fact that he his the natural larger man, proven Lightweight World Title Contender and a fighter who has Mixed and competed with Robert Easter Jr who he competed with until the end of the 12 Rounds a few years ago... I just feel that come the 2nd Half of the contest, Fortuna is going to start bullying the smaller sized Diaz until he picks up the Stoppage victory... The Bookies think Diaz on Points, but I don't think it goes the distance and I only see Fortuna's hand raised at the end of the contest 🤔💯🥊👊💪🤑🧐👍

You do realise that Fortuna spent most of his career at 126/130lbs??
Size won't be a big factor here.
Fortunas power may be a factor!
But if Jojo fights to his potential, (not always a given!) he has the offensive boxing ability to put it on Fortuna and win a clear decision.
