Saturday Fight Results: Edgar Sosa shakes more rust with another win

St. Louis, MO (HBO)

  • Devon Alexander UD-12 Andriy Kotelnik. Full recap of this fight, plus the next two, is here. CompuBox stats and a more detailed breakdown of the Alexander-Kotelnik scoring is here.
  • Tavoris Cloud UD-12 Glen Johnson.
  • Cornelius Bundrage TKO-5 Cory Spinks. Spinks has complained about the stoppage, for what it's worth.
  • Ryan Coyne TKO-9 Warren Browning. Coyne was born in St. Charles, MO, but lives in and fights out of St. Louis, so he was another hometown boy on the card. The cruiserweight prospect (15-0, 5 KO) stayed unbeaten with a late stoppage of Browning (12-1-1, 8 KO), a 35-year-old from London. London, Kentucky, that is.

Mexico City, Mexico

  • Edgar Sosa TKO-4 Jose Luis Varela. Former long-running junior flyweight titlist Sosa (39-6, 23 KO) won his second comeback fight since he got his face all jacked up last year against Rodel Mayol. He hasn't yet made the flyweight limit for a fight, but that's where he'll be competing. Varela was nothing more than another tune-up. The Colombian has now lost five in a row.

Hermosillo, Mexico (FSN)

  • Manuel Vargas TKO-6 Michael Arango. Vargas (28-5-1, 13 KO) was last seen getting assaulted by Nonito Donaire in one of the worst mismatches of 2010. This is his second straight win, as he's gone back down to flyweight after the lame one-fight experiment at 115. Arango (30-9-3, 24 KO) is another Colombian with essentially no good wins on his record.
  • Juan Francisco Estrada TKO-2 Carlos Rodriguez. 20-year-old super flyweight prospect Estrada improves to 14-0 (12) with the win over Rodriguez (17-7-4, 6 KO), who has no quality wins among his 17.
  • Robert Marroquin TKO-3 Jesus Quintero. Marroquin, 20, improves to 15-0 (12).

Tokyo, Japan

  • Akifumi Shimoda TD-5 Chang-Hyun Son. Shimoda (22-2-1, 10 KO) is a back-end top ten guy at 122 pounds, and handed Son (12-1-1, 5 KO) his first pro loss. Shimoda won on abbreviated scores of 49-47 (twice) and 49-46.

Moreno, Argentina

  • Diego Gabriel Chaves UD-12 Jefferson Luis Goncalo. Chaves is now 15-0 (12), successfully defending his WBO Latino welterweight belt on shutout scores of 120-107 (twice) and 120-108. His last fight was a UD-6 win over noted pro opponent Edvan Dos Santos Barros, who has a tentative date with prospect Glen Tapia next on September 11.

Brooklyn, NY

  • Reynaldo Lopez KO-1 Mauricio Martinez. A journeyman-meets-journeyman main event at the Aviator Sports Arena for the vacant New York State title at 122 pounds, Lopez put Martinez down three times and finished him off at 1:21. Lopez (31-8-3, 22 KO) has past losses to such notables as Daniel  Ponce de Leon, Cristian Mijares, Dmitry Kirilov and Jhonny Gonzalez, and recent losses to prospects Rico Ramos and Victor Fonseca. Martinez falls to 35-10-1 (23). He has past losses to the likes of Gerry Penalosa, Genaro Garcia and Freddie Norwood.
  • Lennox Allen D-8 Darnell Boone. And so again we tell you the story of Darnell Boone, a could've-been if only he'd had more coddling, protection, money behind his career and time to develop. Boone (17-15-3, 7 KO) is now 30, but in April he upset Adonis Stevenson's apple cart, and this time out he spoiled the unblemished record of 25-year-old Guyana-born, Australian resident Allen (12-0-1, 7 KO).
  • Eddie Caminero TKO-5 Joe Smith Jr. Well, there goes the perfect sheet of Smith (6-1, 6 KO), a Long Island light heavyweight. Caminero (7-3, 7 KO) had been in the ring with better opposition before this fight, including Elvin Ayala.
  • Gary Stark Jr. MD-6 Leopoldo Arocha. This was veteran Stark's first fight since April 2009, and he won on scores of 58-56, 58-57 and 57-57. Arocha (10-13-2, 6 KO) was docked a point in the fourth, so without that this would've been a draw. Stark is now 23-3 (8).
