Edgar Sosa Will Protest TKO Loss To Rodel Mayol

By Mark Vester

Former champion Edgar Sosa has spoken to the press in Mexico and disclosed his plans to file a full protest with Mexican Commission and the WBC to overturn Saturday's two-round TKO loss to Filipino Rodel Mayol in Chiapas, Mexico. Sosa won the WBC junior flyweight title in April 2007 with a decision over Brian Viloria. He made ten defenses of that title until Mayol shocked the world on Saturday.

The sticking point of the protest has to do with the bad clash of heads that took place in the second round of the fight. The head clash sent Sosa down and opened up a cut on his face. The referee Roberto Ramirez ruled it as an "intentional" foul and took away a point from Rodel. After a ringside physician ruled that Sosa could continue, Mayol jumped on Sosa and battered him until the ref stopped the contest.

"I did not recover from the headbutt. It was hard to fight because I was very hurt and could not focus. What happened was intentional," Sosa said. "There should have been a disqualification but they let it continue."

Mayol's camp will shoot back and ask why Sosa did not disclose any of this to the ringside doctor or the referee. Sosa's camp will shoot back and tell officials to take a look at Mayol's history. In Mayol's last two fights, both against Ivan Calderon, there were clashes of heads that forced an early end in both contests. In both fights Calderon was cut badly from clashing with Mayol's head. 

Sosa suffered a fractured cheekbone from the head clash and wants the fight's result changed to a no-contest. It's already being reported that the WBC will order an immediate rematch but Sosa's injury will keep him away from the ring for several months.

I've watched it carefully, the headbutt was accidental.....mayol was at the act of punching at the body with both foot not moving while sosa's feet was at the act of moving forward with his body without punching.....thus both had contact…
