Former world champion Edgar Sosa (46-7, 27 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over Shigetaka Ikehara (22-3-2, 18 KOs) to retain his WBC silver flyweight belt on Saturday night at the Centro de Espectáculos de la Feria in León, Guanajuato, Mexico. After a one-sided beating for eight rounds, Ikehara’s corner didn’t let him come out for round nine.

In the co-feature, veteran super featherweight Miguel “Mickey” Roman (38-10, 28 KOs) beat world rated Dante “Crazy” Jardon (20-3, 18 KOs) by ten round split decision in an exciting fight.
