Sosa Confident Experience Will Overcome Uicab's Power
By Salvador Rodriguez
Edgar Sosa (44-7, 27 KOs) spent almost three years as a world champion, he enjoyed his time and suddenly everything vanished. However, the 'Small Giant" is heading to a second chance, but first he must overcome a big challenge later tonight at the Arena Oasis in Cancun - when he faces big puncher Wilbert 'Hurricane' Uicab (33-6-1, 18 KOs) in WBC flyweight eliminator.
"Good technique should not be overcome by force. Physically Uicab is very strong, and he likes to come forward, but you have to box smart and not look for exchanges. [In my fight with Pongsaklek Wonjongkam], I had a lot of problems and that's not an excuse, but hey, we picked up things well, we made changes and we are confident that we will emerge with the victory," Sosa said.
