On November 21, the eyes of the boxing world will once again be on Casino Rama, as one of the sport’s budding superstars, 19 year-old dynamo “Marvelous” Marvin Sonsona (14-0, 12 KO’s) mounts the first defense of his newly captured WBO Jr. Bantamweight World title in the main event of the Rumble @ Rama X. In just his 14th pro fight the teenage sensation lived up to his nickname “Marvelous” when he dominated reigning champ Jose Lopez to clinch a thrilling unanimous decision at Rumble @ Rama IX. Sonsona’s opponent will be WBO contender Alejandro “Payasito” Hernandez (22-7-1, 11 KO’s) of Mexico City. A veteran of 30 professional fights at 23 years of age, Hernandez has never been stopped and promises to give Sonsona all he can handle.
The “Canadian Kid”, Steve Molitor (30-1, 12 KO’s) will appear as the co-main event in a match that has yet to be finalized as he bides his time awaiting another shot at the world title in early 2010.
In a surprise announcement, Orion Sports Management has inked WBO #6 ranked Super Bantamweight contender, Ciso “ Kid Terrible” Morales (13-0, 8 KO’s) and has indicated he will make his Canadian debut on the November 21 card.

Also appearing will be fan favorite Greg “ The Steel Pole” Kielsa, (10-0, 5 KO’s) the reigning Canadian Heavyweight Champion, making his debut under new Trainer, Egerton Marcus.
