Fightnew.com’s John DiSanto reported from ringside [excerpts]: Before a crowded 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia, Jason Sosa scored his 13th consecutive knockout in the scheduled eight-round main event of the Puerto Rican Boxing Classic. Sosa won the fight by KO in round six.
Sosa battered Jorge Pazos through the entire fight and by round three, the writing was on the wall, as Sosa’s punches had a greater and greater affect on his Mexican opponent.
Finally in round six, a barrage of punches put Pazos down and he took [the] referee’s 10-count on one knee. The time was 32 seconds of the sixth. [End DiSanto item]

Jason said, “I train at the Victory Boxing Gym in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Raul Rivas has been my trainer for about three years now.
“We usually keep sparring in-house, but sometimes we go out to other gyms. I sparred with Kendall Holt a few times, but not too many people from the outside want to spar us.
“My style – I don’t know. Fun? Powerful? Different? I’m my own character in there. I guess I have an aggressive style – that’s what the fans like to see.
“My nickname is El Canito. I was always called that since I was little. I’m Puerto Rican – I have green eyes and blond hair, so it’s about that.”
