August 26: Mexican Contender Damian Sosa to Face Ronald Cruz at San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, California

PhilBoxing.com




STOCKTON, Calif. (July 21, 2022): Rising 154-pound Mexican contender Damian “Samurai” Sosa (20-1, 11 KOs) is set to square off against Ronald “Diablo” Cruz (18-1-1, 12 KOs) in a 10-round main event on Friday, Aug. 26 at San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, California.

The fight will headline a full card of action that will be streamed live in English on FightHype and in Spanish via TV Boxeo.

“We’re excited to be coming back to Stockton, California for another action-packed show featuring our rising star Damian Sosa,” said Jorge Toscano, CEO and Founder of Toscano Boxing Promotions. “He’s a strong fighter with an aggressive style, but Ronald Cruz poses a big threat for him. We’ll see what both fighters are made of on August 26, and it will be a fun fight while it lasts.”

Sosa is a 25-year-old native of Mexico City, Mexico who made his professional debut in 2016. He fought in his native country for most of his career before challenging Artem Oganesyan for the WBO Youth Junior Middleweight Championship on enemy territory. Despite losing, Sosa put on a tremendous effort and bounced back with victories against the likes of “Cassius” Clay Collard and Jesus Vega. Sosa, who lives and trains in Tijuana, looks to continue making his case for a world title at 154 pounds.

“I’m very happy to know that I’ll be once again fighting in Stockton, California,” said Damian Sosa. “Last year I had my first fight in the United States, and it was right there in Stockton. So, I’m very motivated and more so because it’ll be against an American fighter with a very good record. For me, our records make this an attractive fight. On the other hand, I also know that he’s very strong fighter who likes to come forward, and those are ingredients that make for an exciting fight. Without a doubt, it will be a war.”

Cruz is a 30-year-old native of Los Angeles, California who debuted as a pro in September 2014. He had a rocky start to his career by suffering his first defeat in his third fight, but he then remained undefeated across 16 additional fights through seven years of action. In his last outing, Cruz fought to a draw against Kevin Ottley, but feels that he will be ready to deliver the best performance of his life against Sosa.

“I look forward to fighting against Damian Sosa this coming August 26,” said Ronald Cruz. “The judges can take a break in this fight because we won’t be needing them. There will be lots of fireworks, and you won’t want to miss this.”

Undercard information will be announced shortly.
