Marvin Sonsona Tells Papito Vazquez: Now It's My Time!

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

During their widely cheered face-off at the Theater of Madison Square Garden in their ten round rematch for the North American Boxing Federation featherweight title “Marvelous” Marvin Sonsona told former WBO super bantamweight champion Wilfredo Vazquez Jr “now its my time.”

Sonsona lost by a 4th round knockout to Vazquez in Puerto Rico in a super bantamweight title fight on February 27, 2010 when he got careless and got caught with a body shot on the ropes but this time around his manager Dr. Rajan Yraola told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard in an overseas telephone conversation that Marvin  is “excited but not overconfident” of winning.

Both fighters tipped the scales at 125.8 pounds and Sonsona conceded that Vazquez looked “ripped and ready” but promised “I will do my best.”

Sonsona told the Standard “ my condition is one thousand percent. I will give it everything. I will put on a show.”

Yraola said the crowd at fight time in famed Madison Square Garden will be overwhelmingly Puerto Rican for the classic Top Rank Promotions card headlined by the battle between middleweight champion Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez of Argentina and Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico “with probably 10,000 Puerto Ricans, 1,000 Argentines and 10 Filipinos!”  including two relatives from Manila for whom he bought tickets.

Since his loss to Vazquez, the lanky southpaw Sonsona has won four fights in a row including his last bout in which he scored a spectacular 3rd round knockout of former world super bantamweight champion Akifumi Shimoda of Japan in Macau last February 22.

Vazquez Jr, on the other hand, is coming off a unanimous twelve round decision over Guillermo Avila to capture the WBO International super bantamweight title on  September 20, 2013.

The fight card will be telecast on SkyCable pay-per-view beginning at 9:00 a.m. as well as ABS-CBN Sports over the revamped Channel 23 at 12 noon.
