Boxing In Mexico: Sosa vs. Jaro Tonight For WBC Belt In Mexico City

Local Mexico City hero Edgar Sosa, 32-5 (17), puts his WBC Light Flyweight crown on the line tonight at Arena Mexico in the capital city and the 29 year old will be looking to make his fifth defense of the belt he won by posting a majority decision over former US Olympian Brian Viloria in April, 2007.

Sosa is on a hot streak, winning his last 20 contests since mounting a failed bid to unseat Mexican Champion Ulises Solis, the current IBF Light Fly titlist, five years ago.

Challenging Sosa will be Manila based OPBF kingpin, Sonny Boy Jaro, 28-6-5 (17), also the champion of his native Philippines. 26 year old Jaro comes into the title bid riding a streak of three straight victories but has also been stopped in all but one of his losses and that could obviously be a problem against the champion.

A Mexican Bantamweight title bout is the chief support contest as power punching champion Francisco Paredes, 15-11-1 (14), faces southpaw interim titlist, Ramon Leyte, 18-9 (13), over twelve rounds.

WBC Youth Light Welter titlist Ali Cheba, 27-0 (21), of France sees action as he defends against Reyes Sanchez, 12-2 (7), and the WBC International Female Flyweight crown will be up for grabs as Marina Juarez, 16-5-3 (9), squares off against Suzannah Warner, 8-6 (2).

Heavyweight prospect David Rodriguez, 28-0 (26), puts his perfect record on the line against former NABF titlist Robert Davis, 32-8 (20), in a six rounder.
