Roman Gonzalez vs. Edgar Sosa Looms For 2014?

By Jose Luis Camarillo, notifight.com

Japanese promoter Akihiko Honda would like to match Roman Gonzalez (36-0, 30KOs) against Edgar Sosa (49-7, 29KOs), if both fighters are able to achieve victory in their next bouts. Both boxers will appear in separate shows being staged by Honda's Teiken Promotions. On December 6th in Tokyo, Sosa will challenge WBC flyweight champion Akira Yaegashi (18-3, 9KOs), and on November 6th, also in Tokyo, Gonzalez will face veteran Oscar Blanquet (32-6-1, 23KOs). Gonzalez recently moved up to the flyweight division and wants another crown. He defeated 13 Mexican opponents in his undefeated run, including current WBO/WBA flyweight champion Juan Francisco Estrada.

Article makes clear Sosa has to beat Yaegashi first. That fight just got even more attractive.

They need to face off and then that winner should fight the winner of Estrada-Segura, and it will give us an undisputed champ at 112

[QUOTE=bigcursedawg;13902594]I'm pretty sure there have already been talks of a rematch between Yaegashi and Ioka. Ioka and Gonzalez are both moving up to 112, but the Ioka fight would be more money for Yaegashi.[/QUOTE] That'd be awesome if it happens…
