Boxing In Canada: Sonsona, Hernandez Draw For IBF Title, Molitor Wins

Last night at Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario, Marvin Sonsona and Alejandro Hernandez fought to a draw over the vacant WBO super flyweight title.

Filipino southpaw Sonsona had won the belt from Jose Lopez in September but lost it on the scales Friday when he was 2.5 pounds over the super fly weight limit.

Mexico City based Hernandez came into the clash with the experience of having faced perhaps Argentina's top fighter, undefeated WBO flyweight champion Omar Andres Narvaez, in a big hearted but failed title bid.

The seasoned Hernandez fought Sonsona, just 19 years of age, to a standstill over the course of 12 difficult rounds and forced a 115-113, 113-115 and 114-114 draw.

On the undercard, ex-IBF super bantam king Steve Molitor, 31-1 (12), won his third straight comeback bout, outpointing Argentine import Jose Saez, 17-9-4 (8), at featherweight.

Southpaw Molitor won an IBF eliminator for the number two spot at super bantam in June and could meet top rated South African Takalani Ndlovu in a rematch to their 2007 clash which Molitor won by ninth round stoppage.

Canadian heavyweight champ Grzegorz Kielsa, 11-0 (5), won ever round against American Jason Bergman, 9-9-2 (6), over six frames.
