Former WBC light flyweight champion Edgar Sosa is feeling optimistic about his return to the ring while slowly but surely recuperating from the fractures he suffered in his controversial loss against Rodel Mayol last November. Sosa will be undergoing a tomography at the end of the month to determine how well his fractured cheekbone is healing. In the meantime, the very popular Mexico City-born champion is running and doing light work in the gym on the bags. “If the doctors give me the OK, I may be able to spar again as early as April,” he says.
What are Edgar Sosa’s plans for 2010? “I hope to make two tune-up matches at flyweight before going for the WBC flyweight title by the end of the year, probably in November,” said Edgar.
Sosa mentioned his interest in participating on a boxing card on a cruise ship, the first of the kind that will be sponsored this year by the WBC. “Jose Sulaiman told me that I would have a slot on that card.”
Manager Jacques Deschamps added, “Edgar is really pumped about returning to ring action and the adversity he faced last year has seemed to make him stronger and more determined.”
