Boxing Result: Sosa, Paredes Win, Cheba Dethroned In Mexico City

The packed Arena Mexico in Mexico City saw a torrent of action last night with four titles being fought over and by the time the smoke cleared, there were two new champions.

Edgar Sosa, 33-5 (17), once again kept hold of his WBC Light Flyweight crown, outboxing hardened Filipino visitor Sonny Boy Jaro, 28-7-5 (17), to post a twelve round unanimous decision via scores of 118-109 and 117-110 twice.

OPBF and Philippine Champion Jaro came to fight but couldn't find the target with his big powershots until the ninth frame when he decked the champion. Sosa beat the count and survived the round as Jaro tried but couldn't improve upon his work.

As expected, the clash between Mexican Bantamweight titlist Francisco Paredes, 16-11-1 (14), and the interim holder of that belt, Ramon Leyte, 18-10 (13), was pure trench warfare but after the twelve rounds were over, Paredes emerged the victor by split decision.

Well-traveled Frenchman Ali Cheba, 27-1 (21), finally hit the wall as the Rouen native lost his WBC Youth Light Welterweight crown to towering local man Reyes Sanchez, 13-2 (8), who finished off Cheba in the seventh.

The WBC International Female Flyweight trophy was caged by Mariana Juarez, 17-5-3 (9), who outpointed Suzannah Warner, 8-7 (2), after ten rounds of combat.

There was a heavyweight bout on the bill as David Hernandez, 29-0 (27), claimed another knockout victim, crushing chinny late replacement Andy Sample, 34-18-2 (22), in the first. Sample has been stopped in all 18 of his losses, nine of them coming in the first round.
