Edgar Sosa Starts Training For Last Fight Before Title Shot

By Jhonny Gonzalez

Edgar Sosa has resumed training with a direct focus on the next defense of his WBC international flyweight title. The date, venue and opponent will soon be announced. Sosa, also the WBC emeritus champion, has enjoyed two weeks of vacation. Sosa (41-6, 24 KOs) promised that his upcoming fight will be the last stop before a title showdown with the full champion of the WBC, Pongsaklek Wongjongkam of Thailand.
