Earlier tonight, Peltz Boxing along with Bam Boxing and Joe Hand Promotions held an impressive night of boxing at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA that featured local favorites and Jason Sosa in the main event.
Philadelphia’s Victor Vasquez went to war with Jose Guzman for 4 rounds before stopping him in the final round of their fight. Guzman, who held his ground throughout the fight, gave Vasquez all he could handle. In some rounds even managing to land solid hard shots on Vasquez. Vasquez fired back, taking his man to the ropes on multiple occasions. Finally in the final round, Guzman caved and took a barrage of punches that prompted the referee to stop the fight. Vasquez improved his impressive record to 20 wins and 8 KO’s.
Joey Dawejko had an easy nights work earlier at the 2300 in his bout against Ebonong Uhmohette. In just 27 seconds Dawejko, who is a resident in Philadelphia, delivered a frightening right hand that sent Umohette face first into the canvas knocking him out cold.
The win opened the doors for Dawejko as local fans are dreaming of the idea of matching him up with Amir Mansour, who in his last bout, finished his opponent in the exact fashion. Dawejko and Mansour had a share of words that got intense before both men parted ways after the event. Possibly looking to share the ring on the May 8th edition of ESPN Friday Night Fights.
Camden, New Jersey’s Jason Sosa continues to impress as he stopped Costa Rica’s Bergman Aguilar in just 3 rounds after Sosa cracked Aguilar with a devastating left hand that broke his jaw in the 3rd. Aguilar turned his back to Sosa and the referee practically prompting that he did not want to continue. Throughout the fight, it seemed as if Aguilar would be a somewhat hard fight for Jason stylistically as Sosa would land some shots and miss some.
Aguilar was able to slip some of Sosa’s shots and counter him but did not possess the punching power to hurt him. Both men would trade shots before Aguilar quit during the middle of the 3rd round after suffering from a broken jaw. The win continues Sosa’s knockout streak and has now set him up for much bigger opportunities.
Not too long ago Sosa was supposed to make an appearance on ShoBox against Ivan Redkach before opting out. Redkach’s team didn’t respond in time, and when they did, Sosa had already stopped training for the potential fight. Now it looks as if Sosa is ready to make a major move in his career with tonight’s impressive victory.
