Photo: Wonjongkam, Edgar Sosa are in Shape For Battle

By Hesiquio Balderas

BANGKOK, Thailand - Emeritus champion Edgar Sosa, and WBC flyweight champion Pongsaklek Wonjongkam, are right on target for Friday's showdown in Bangkok, Thailand. Both boxers were fine at the pre-fight weigh-in, where Sosa weighed 116 pounds and the champion Wonjongkam was 117 pounds.

The promoter of the event Piyarat Vachirarattanawongse is considering a change of arena due to the heavy rain that has devastated Bangkok. The current venue is the 11st Infantry Arena and if the rain doesn't stop they will have to move to the legendary Lumpini Stadium which is located close to downtown Bangkok.

At the pre weigh-in Sosa was wearing shorts and socks, which indicates that he doesn't have any problems with the scale and will easily get down to the 112 pound flyweight limit. Edgar also had time to eat well, with a meal filled with vegetables, fruit, rice, meat and strawberry ice cream.

Wonjongkam's got this 116-112, maybe 117-111. Sosa is not beating him at home

Are those guys tall enough to go on the rides at Six Flags?

[QUOTE=hougigo;11307617]I'm interested in it... as for Sosa... he lost a title fight to Mayol? TKO in the 2nd.... pretty sure Mayol had all of his title fights ended with a headbutt or something of the sort.[/QUOTE] Did you not see…
