Sosa looking to the future

By Robert Coster

WBC light flyweight champion Edgar Sosa proved again on Tuesday night why he one of the best of his division with a convincing sixth round TKO of fifth ranked challenger Omar Soto of Puerto Rico. In front of a packed house at the Siglo XXI auditorium in Puebla, Sosa (37-5, 21 KOs) scored his 25th consecutive victory with a sixth round TKO over an opponent who proved to be elusive and cagey. In fact, at the end of the fourth round, Soto was actually ahead on two scorecards 39-37. “It took me time to figure him out,” said Sosa after the bout, “but my body blows have been the recipe to victory in my last fights.” What’s next for Edgar Sosa after this convincing performance? Stated manager Jacques Deschamps, “Edgar might yet make another title defense at the end of November. A rematch with Brian Viloria [whom Sosa defeated to win the title] is a definite possibility. After that, we are definitely looking for Edgar to move up and go after the WBC flyweight belt in 2010.”
