WBA #2 ranked super flyweight Roberto Sosa (20-0, 11 KOs) of Argentina punished Devis Perez (13-3-2, 7 KOs) of Colombia in route to a seventh round TKO victory on Saturday night at the Polideportivo Municipal in Buenos Aires, Argentina. After a fairly tame opening two rounds Sosa opened up big time in round three stunning Perez badly with solid left hooks to the chin throughout the round. Perez to his credit stayed on his feet but the referee issued standing 8 counts in round three and again in round four when he was again rocked badly. A huge right hand toward the end of round six had Perez in all kinds of trouble but the referee instead of stopping the bout issued another standing 8 count. The bell sounded seconds later to save Perez if only but momentarily. Sosa jumped on Perez immediatley to begin round seven snapping his head back badly with straight rights. Sosa at one point stopped and motioned to the referee to step in but the referee instructed him to keep fighting on. Sosa did so and moments later as he punished Perez with a barrage of punches the referee rightfully called an end to the punishment. Sosa retained his WBA Fedelatin super flyweight title with the win.
In her biggest win to date Unified WBA/WBO female light flyweight champion Yesica Bopp (13-0, 5 KOs) of Argentina retained her titles by way unanimous decision over former world champion Carino Moreno (21-2, 6 KOs) of Northern California. Bopp’s superior handspeed, footwork, and defense were the keys to her victory. Moreno was agressive the entire fight and had her moments but the shorter Bopp controlled the distance. Bopp was able land overhand rights at will leading to inflammation under the left eye of Moreno. Moreno was unable to mount any serious attack as Bopp’s defense was airtight keeping her hands up high. The official judges scorecards were 99-91, 98-92 and 100-91 all in favor of Bopp.
