Sosa to defend Nov. 21

By Robert Coster

Boxing’s busiest champion, WBC light-flyweight monarch Edgar Sosa (37-5, 21 KOs) is set for yet another title defense on November 21st in Tuxla Gutierrez, Chappas, Mexico, the eleventh defense of his two year tenure as champion. The opponent being mentioned is touted Filipino contender Rodel Mayol (25-4-1, 19 KOs) who just gave WBO champion Ivan Calderon two tough back-to-back battles, one a draw and the other, a recent close point loss. It is very probable that with this fight Sosa would be closing out his reign in the 108lb division and stepping up to the flyweight division next year. For his part Mayol would be making his fourth attempt at winning the mini-flyweight title, after unsuccessful attempts against Ulises Solis and Calderon. Rodel is reputed for his lightening speed and excellent power. Declared champion Sosa, “I think Mayol proved how worthy a fighter he is against a great champion like Calderon, giving Ivan the hardest fights of his career. If the fight is confirmed, I expect a very difficult challenge from Mayol.”
