Jason Sosa knocks out Fortuna in the 11th to win the WBA featherweight title in China

Despite long odds – and an even longer plane ride – Camden, New Jersey native Jason Sosa used a lethal left hook to defy the critics and non believers, knocking out world champion Javier Fortuna in round 11 to win the WBA featherweight title at the Capital Gym in Beijing, China.

The betting line was as high as 17-to-1 in favor of the Premier Boxing Champions signee Fortuna before bell time. Sensing a worthwhile long shot, savvy gamblers put a lot of late money on Sosa which dropped the line near 7-to-1 when the fight began.

The fight was so remote that there was no TV broadcast or internet streams for this show which happened at 10 AM Eastern Time. It was the perfect setting for a modern day boxing upset.

Multiple reports suggest that it was a come from behind knockout for Sosa, a fighter who was developed in the Peltz boxing fold.  The New Jersey native was knocked to the canvas in round five and was likely down on all scorecards as the fight headed into the championship rounds.

Sources say a late Sosa adjustment turned the tide. Kicking up the intensity, “Canito” knocked Fortuna down in round 10, and then finished the job less than three minutes later, closing the show at the 0:45 mark of round 11.

With the victory Sosa improves to 19-1-4, 15 KOs while the former champ Javier “El Abejon” Fortuna suffers his first career loss, falling to 29-1-1, 21 KOs.

Congrats to Team Sosa, Peltz Boxing and Top Rank Boxing  on the outstanding victory on the other side of the globe. This win ends a long losing streak for local fighters competing at the championship level of the sport.

Team Sosa
