BEIJING, CHINA — The boxing upsets just keep coming in 2016. After drawing with Nicholas Walters last December on HBO, Jason Sosa can now call himself a titlist after knocking out Javier Fortuna to pick up the WBA World super featherweight title.
The ending sequence saw Sosa nail Fortuna with a right-left hook combination for a face-first knockdown. Fortuna beat the count, but was deemed in no condition to continue.
The victory is Sosa’s first world title win and improves his record to 19–4. Fortuna suffers his first defeat and falls to 29-1-1.
