Both fighters were supposed to face each other in July last year, but Garcia had to withdraw from the fight citing mental health issues. Fortuna then took on late replacement Joseph Diaz Jr., who handed “El Abejon” his first loss in almost 4 years via decision. Now both fighters can finally settle their differences in the squared circle. Fortuna will be the toughest challenge for Garcia since he fought Luke Campbell back in 2018.
