Boxing In Mexico: Saturday Night Preview

Two good fight cards in Mexico tonight with the top bill taking place at Ciudad Victoria in Tamaulipas where Edgar Sosa will defend his WBC Light Flyweight crown.

Sosa, 34-5 (18), has been on fire since 2003, winning 22 straight contests and picking up the WBC belt against Brian Viloria two years ago by majority decision.

The Mexico City man has retained the title seven times and tonight will face off with longtime former PABA Minimumweight beltholder Pornsawan Porpramook, 21-2 (16), who has also fought under the name Pornsawan Kratingdaenggym.

Porpramook, of Sa Kaeo, Thailand, has only come up short when failing to unseat WBO Minimumweight Champ Donnie Nietes in 2007 and WBC King Oleydong Sithsamerchai last year.

Also on the bill is former WBC Featherweight titlist Guty Espadas Jr, 44-7 (28), who meets Alberto Garza, 16-4-1 (12), over ten rounds and WBC International Female Lightweight Champion Mia St. John, 45-9-2 (18), who defends her belt against Brooke Dierdorff, 4-4-1 (3).

At Estadio Arturo C. Nahl in La Paz, IBF Minimumweight boss Raul Garcia, 25-0-1 (15), puts his title and undefeated record on the line against Colombia's Ronald Barrera, 26-5-1 (16).

Garcia and Barrera first met in an IBF eliminator a year ago with Garcia coming away with a solid 12 round unanimous decision victory.
