As previously reported, WBC International flyweight champion Edgar Sosa (43-7, 26KOs) is going to defend his title against Roilo Golez on January 7 in Mexico City, Mexico. It will be Sosa's first bout since losing a twelve round decision to full WBC champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam in October in Thailand. Golez, a Filipino pug with a record of 13-7, 5KOs, had been previously knocked out by Sammy Guttierez in five rounds in a WBC junior flyweight title bout back in October.
Sosa is trying new training techniques with his coach Fernando Barrera. The Mexican champion is working with a lot of heavy weights and doing new exercises to combine strength and speed for much harder power punches.
