In a WBC flyweight eliminator between former world champions, Edgar Sosa (49-7, 29 KOs) scored a hard fought twelve round unanimous decision over Giovani Segura (29-3-1, 25 KOs) on Saturday night at the Plaza de Toros Eloy Cavazos in Zitacuaro, Michoacan, Mexico. Sosa got off to a good start, but Segura came on strong in the middle rounds. Segura was deducted a point for a low blow in round nine. Sosa closed the fight very strong to take the fight by scores of 115-112, 116-112, 114-113. Quite a run for Sosa, who beat ex-champ Ulises “Archie” Solis just two months ago. He now has earned the chance to face the WBC flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi.
In other action, bantamweight Alejandro “Cobrita” Gonzalez Jr (19-0-2, 13 KOs) scored a first round KO over Noe Martinez (12-4, 5 KOs).
Unbeaten featherweight Adrian Young (18-0-1, 15 KOs) won a ten round unanimous decision over Sylvester Lopez (20-5-2, 15 KOs) by scores of 95-92, 95-92 and 97-92.
