Edgar Sosa Takes Out Roilo Golez in Seven Rounds

By Salvador Rodriguez

WBC International flyweight champion Edgar Sosa (44-7, 26KOs) has started off on the right foot in 2012. The 'Little Giant' is back after securing a seventh round knockout over Filipino Roilo Golez (13-8, 5KOs) at a packed Foro Polanco in Mexico City. The Mexican wanted to secure a knockout victory and he came through at 2:30 of the seventh round.

After a feeling out process in the first, the fight started to heat up in the second, but it was Sosa who got the better of the action. The third round was fought on the ropes, with Golez trying to counter as Sosa continued to press forward. By the end of the fourth, Sosa leds on the three official scorecards with an identical tally of 39-37.

The Filipino boxer started to get tired as the fight played out. Sosa raised his game in the seventh and started battering Golez, which prompted referee Guadalupe Garcia to stop the bout before the screaming audience

The next step for Sosa could be Wilbert ‘Huracán’ Uicab (33-6-1, 18KOs), from Yucatán, in an elimination bout for the full WBC flyweight championship.

In the co-main event, Mexico's Ramon 'Niño de Oro' Ayala defeated Nicaraguan Carlos Velazquez by unanimous decision after ten rounds in the lightweight category. The fight was tougher than expected for the Mexican boxer, who used his experience to win the match.

In other results, Francisco Pozo won by KO in the first round over Efren Bautista at featherweight, while Roberto Ucheta won by TKO in the fourth round of a super flyweight bout over Ariel Gonzalez. Emmanuel Rodriguez won a unanimous decision over Daniel Romero after four rounds at featherweight.

As I've said before Roilo Golez is a nobody in Philippine boxing. This is not an excuse but if the Mexican wants war, there's Milan Melindo, Froilan Saludar or even Denver Cuello. :boxing:
