Boxing In Mexico: Sosa Retains WBC Crown In Tamaulipas

Last night at Ciudad Victoria in Tamaulipas, Mexico, WBC Light Flyweight Champion Edgar Sosa continued his reign with a fourth round TKO of challenger Pornsawan Porpramook.

Longtime PABA minimumweight champion and two-time world title challenger Porpramook had never been stopped before but the 30 year old Thai could not withstand the punishment doled out by the hard charging Mexico City resident Sosa.

Sosa sees his record to 35-5 (19), retaining the WBC belt for the eighth time and could be in line to face IBF Champion Ulises Solis, who holds two razor thin wins over Sosa in 2000 and 2003, should Solis defeat Sosa victim Brian Viloria later this month.

On the undercard of the big bill, featherweight Alberto Garza, 17-4-1 (13), annexed the vacant WBC Continental Americas crown by crushing Genaro Camargo, 23-6 (16), in the first round.

Reyes Sanchez, 15-2 (10), stopped Rosbel Montoya, 8-1 (8), in the fourth for the WBC Continental Americas lightweight belt while former WBC Featherweight Champion Guty Espadas Jr, 45-7 (28), won a hard fought ten round split decision over Juan Carlos Martinez, 10-10-1 (6).

WBC International Female Lightweight titlist Mia St. John, 45-10-2 (18), was dethroned by Brooke Dierdorff, 5-4-1 (3), via a ten round UD.
