The interim WBC title has been held since January by Garcia, who won it against Luke Campbell by TKO. The World Boxing Council recently designated Fortune as a challenger to a duel with a young American. Boxers' promoters had to agree on the details of the fight before April 16.

Fortuna, a former world featherweight champion, last fought in November. The winner of this fight will be a mandatory for Devin Haney, who is the full-fledged WBC lightweight champion. The American will return to the ring on May 29, crossing gloves with Jorge Linares.
