This Friday, in what promises to be a legitimately fan-friendly contest, long-reigning WBC flyweight champion, Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (82-3-1, 45 KOs) will defend the title in his native Thailand against veteran former world champion, Edgar Sosa (43-6, 26 KOs).
Wonjongkam, a two-time WBC flyweight titlist, has an astounding 23-1-1 record in world title fights and has been a fixture on the world scene since 2001. Regarded as one of the most accomplished Thai boxers of all-time, Wonjongkam holds victories over fighters such as Luis Lazarte, Hussein Hussein, Daisuke Naito, Julio Cesar Miranda, and Koki Kameda.
Mexican former junior flyweight champion, Sosa, has also had a stellar world title fight history, posting an 11-1 record in twelve championship bouts. Sosa’s sole loss at the world title level was a controversial TKO 2 loss to Rodel Mayol in a bout where Sosa suffered a shattered orbital bone around his eye from a Mayol headbutt.
