Solar Entertainment and GMA-7 will air the WBO superflyweight title challenge of Filipino Marvin "Marvelous" Sonsona against Puerto Rican world champion Jose "Carita" Lopez on September 4 (Sept. 5 RP time) at Casino Rama in Ontario, Canada.
Sonsona's Philippine promoter Sammy Gello-ani informed yesterday that Sonsona versus Lopez takes place 10:30PM in Canada, around 10:30 AM in the Philippines.
Sonsona is looking to be Philippines' next world champion and hopefully become the youngest Filipino world champion thus far.
The event will be staged by promoter Allan Trembly of Canada in association with Sampson Boxing Promotions LLC.
Sonsona arrived in Canada with trainer Nonito Donaire Sr and latter joined by co-trainer Jun Agrabio the following day.
