Cotto vs Martinez live results: Marvin Sonsona beats Wilfredo Vazquez Jr in rematch

Rich Schultz

By split decision scores, Marvin Sonsona got a measure of revenge for his only career loss to date, beating Wilfredo Vazquez Jr in an odd fight.

Though it may not have been the exciting show he would have preferred to put on, Marvin Sonsona evened the score with Wilfred Vazquez Jr tonight, avenging his only professional loss with a split decision win at Madison Square Garden tonight, on the Cotto-Martinez undercard.

Sonsona (19-1-1, 15 KO) won on scores of 96-92, 96-92, and 92-96. BLH had it 95-93 for Vazquez, while HBO's Harold Lederman had it 95-93 for Sonsona. It was a potentially debatable fight, but the decision is by no means controversial, and I would say would not have been had it gone the other way.

Sonsona scored a first round knockdown on what looked like a liver shot, dropping Vazquez hard. But the Puerto Rican veteran made a comeback, as Sonsona began to rest on his laurels a bit, and then started flopping around the ring after losing a point via deduction, maybe trying to get the point back, maybe milking stuff for whatever other reason, maybe he was tired. Whatever it was, down the stretch this became an awfully ugly fight, and the end result was a nearly silent MSG.
