Roman Gonzalez-Edgar Sosa Clash in The Works?

Gonzalez would like a unification with WBO/WBA champion Juan Francisco Estrada, who seems to be heading into a rematch with Brian Viloria.

If the fight happens, Sosa would be skipping ahead of the line, because the World Boxing Council recently ordered No. 1 ranked Nawaphon Sor Rungvisai of Thailand to face Sosa, ranked at No. 2, in a final eliminator to determine the mandatory challenger to Gonzalez.

[QUOTE=Aztekkas;15226002]Since when has Sosa been a bum? Aside from Estrada, Viloria and Roman what other fighters do you actually follow at 112? Because your lack of knowledge is showin by making such an idiotic statement. I digress, the rematch between…
