It was thought to be a stay-active fight for Marvin Sonsona but became a tough test. Sonsona was in a tough 10-round fight against Arellano (15-6-2, (3KO’s) for their featherweight match at the StubHub Center. He won a very close fight with one judge scored the bout even 95-95, and the other two 96-94.
Sonsona (20-1-1, 15KO’s) last fight was exactly one year ago in the under-card of Miguel Cotto, who defended his title against Geale on HBO, versus Sergio Martinez. It is safe to say that ring rust could be attributed to his struggling performance against a perceived easy stay-active fight.
Well, a win is a win and the 24 year old former world champion who is now trying to keep his career eyeing for another title in the next couple of fights.
