By Virgi T. Romano

Little-known Eden Sonsona gets the biggest challenge of his young career when he goes up against veteran Eric Barcelona for the Philippine super-flyweight crown tomorrow in the main event of In This Corner on RPN-9 starting at 12 noon.
Dubbed "Rumble in Binangonan," the 12-round encounter presented by Ginebra San Miguel and in part by PCSO and Lipovitan, in cooperation with Gov. Ito Ynares and Mayor Cesar Ynares, will be Barcelona's fourth defense of the RP 115-lbs title since capturing the crown in November 2003.
The youthful Sonsona, 13-1 (6 KO), and only on his second year of fighting in the big city, will be tested to the fullest as he challenges the battle-tested Barcelona, a veteran of 45 fights (32-8-5 win-loss-draw).
Sonsona, a native of Gen. Santos City, is scheduled to leave for the US, to further hone his skills under a well-known American trainer, to prepare him for more bigger challenges in the future.
