Horikawa Robbed of $15K, Besides Edgar Sosa KO Loss

By Jhonny Gonzalez

At Arena Mexico in Mexico City, WBC International flyweight champion Edgar Sosa (41-6, 24 KOs) stopped Kenichi Horikawa (20-10-1, 4 KOs) of Japan in the eight round. The fight was a planned tuneup before Sosa challenges the full champion of the WBC, Pongsaklek Wongjongkam of Thailand.

It's being reported that someone broke into the hotel room of Horikawa and stole $15,000 from a safe that he had in his room at the Casa Inn Hotel. The hotel is investigating. The hotel found no evidence of forced entry in the room or to the safety deposit box. 

"He is very sad and he can't even afford to eat right now. He want to try to get him an adavance on his purse," said an Osaka translator to Sal Rodriguez.

The fight was stopped too soon (from what I could tell)...the cut wasn't bad and the Japanese was giving Sosa a hard time.
