SONSONA FAILS TO MAKE WEIGHT, VACATES TITLE
By Rob Cruz
Sat, 21 Nov 2009
Note that this weigh-in takes place the same day as the fight due to the governing rules of the Ontario Athletic Commission.
Reigning WBO Junior Bantamweight champion “Marvelous” Marvin Sonsona (14-0, 12 KO’s) weighed in this morning at 117.6lbs and vacated his WBO World Title.
His opponent Alejandro “Payasito” Hernandez (22-7-1, 11 KO’s, WBO#15) weighed in at 115lbs. Should Hernandez wins the match up tonight, he will win the WBO vacated Junior Bantamweight world tite.
Marvin did not make the contractual weight of 115lbs, however the fight is still on. After this fight, there are plans to move Marvin Sonsona up in weight for another world title. Marvin’s coaches and management did not force Marvin to lose the extra 2.6lbs due to further possible dehydration during the fight that will put Marvin at risk.
Former IBF Junior Featherweight champion “The Canadian Kid” Steve Molitor (30-1, 12 KO’s, IBF #2) weighed in at 126.2 lbs. His opponent from Argentina, Jose “Pamperito” Saez (17-8-4, 8 KO’s) weighed in at 125.2lbs
The Molitor vs Saez is this evening's co-main event in an eight round bout.
Both the Sonsona-Hernandez and Molitor-Saez fights will be broadcast in Canada on TSN on Saturday, November 21st, beginning at 10:30 PM, as well as on Solar Sports in the Philippines, and on a national carrier in Mexico.
Making his Canadian debut is Ciso “Kid Terrible” Morales from Bohol, Philippines weighed in at 121.4 lbs. His opponent of Mexico Miguel Gonzales weighed in at 122.2 lbs. The two are matched up in an undercard bout not televised in Canada.
