Fortuna made his opponenet look outmatched from the beginning with much better hand speed and power to go with it. Cruz was knocked down in the first round from a flurry of punches. In round two, the southpaw Fortuna caught him with a short powerful left hand that caused the referee to call the TKO when Cruz barely wobbled up to his feet with a bloody nose.
There was also a trio of four rounders televised:
Heavyweight Magomed Abdusalamov (15-0) defeated Maurice Byarm (13-2-1) by TKO round two.
Featherweight Rocco Santomauro (9-0) defeated DeWayne Wisdom (2-4) by unanimous decision.
