Rodel Mayol stuns Edgar Sosa, Marvin Sonsona draws in Ontario

Andre Ward's domination of Mikkel Kessler wasn't the only upset of the night in boxing.

Rodel Mayol shocked long-reigning 108-pound titlist Edgar Sosa with a second round knockout in Mexico, winning the WBC junior flyweight title and completing what was really a hell of a year for the Filipino scrapper. Mayol (26-4-1, 20 KO) battled to a draw and a tight technical decision loss this year in two fights with Ivan Calderon, and the upset win over Sosa raises his stock significantly. He fought three fights with what were considered the two best at 108 pounds, and he wound up on top against Sosa.

In Ontario, Marvin Sonsona went to a draw with Alejandro Hernandez in an unimpressive performance. Sonsona lost his 115-pound title on the scales in the morning. The Boxing Bulletin's Andrew Fruman was in attendance at the fight, and also described Sonsona's performance as unimpressive. The same was said about Steve Molitor's eight-round win over Jose Saez.

Both Mikkel Kessler (14) and Edgar Sosa (20) were ranked in our pound-for-pound top 20, so look out for two new additions tomorrow when we update our rankings. And look for some fast rises for Andre Ward and Rodel Mayol in their divisions, too.
