The man many are calling the next Filipino star, Marvin Sonsona (14-0, 12KOs), captured the WBO junior bantamweight title with a twelve round decision over veteran Jose “Carita” Lopez (39-8-2, 32KOs) at Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada. The scores were 114-111, 115-110 and 116-109.
The 19-year-old Sonsona was too strong for Lopez, often shaking the veteran up, dropping him in round four and always keeping him on the defensive.
