Jason Sosa

At the age of 27, Jason is a six-year pro. A young contender at 130 pounds, he had won 14 fights in a row, the including 13 straight by knockout, before scoring a draw against unbeaten Nicholas Walters on Dec. 19 in upstate New York.

He has a hard-hitting, all-action style – he makes exciting fights and has scored some devastating knockout wins.

On October 2 in Philadelphia, he won by sixth-round knockout against Jorge Pazos.

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]

Doghouseboxing.com’s Ken Hissner commented: The best fighter since Dwight “Camden Buzzsaw” Muhammad Qawi to come out of Camden, NJ, super featherweight Jason Sosa scored his 14th straight win and the last 13 by knockout stopping Mexico’s Jorge “El Feroz” Pazos at Philly’s 2300 Arena Friday night! [End Hissner 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.”
