Now fighting as a flyweight, former jr flyweight champion Edgar Sosa was impressive Saturday night at the Arena Mexico in the Mexican capital, totally dominating Venezuelan import Jose Luis Varela and scoring a 4th round TKO. A fired-up Sosa (39-6, 23 KOs) had promised a kayo to his legion of fans and he delivered: he took command from the first round and thoroughly punished the game but outclassed Varela (15-8, 7 KOs), scoring a knockdown in the third round and another in the fourth round.

The courageous Varela got up but the Sosa jumped on him, unloading a barrage of punches and forced the referee to stop the carnage at 1:33 of the round. It was just the second time in his career that Varela suffered a stoppage loss.

Commented Sosa manager Jacques Deschamps after the bout: “Edgar Sosa is very strong as a flyweight. With a couple of fights more under his belt, Edgar will be positioned to challenge for the world title next year.”
