The 19 year-old Sonsona, who captured the crown against Jose “Carlito” Lopez this past September via thrilling 12 round unanimous decision, promised to once again treat Ontario fight fans to another scintillating performance.

“When I first fought here in September, I was treated so well, and welcomed so warmly that I wanted to deliver a great performance to my new fans in Ontario.”

“Now that I’m back, I remember that feeling, and am willing to go through hell once again for my fans and my sport.”
For the 23 year-old Hernandez from Mexico City, Mexico, Saturday’s fight is his second crack at a world title – he dropped a 12 round unanimous decision to IBF Flyweight champion, Omar Andres Narvaez, of Argentina, in September of 2008 - and he is keen on returning home a world champion.

“This is what we dream of when we get into boxing. These chances are never guaranteed, and you must make the most of them when they come around,” Hernandez said.

“I’ve been blessed with a second chance at a world title, and I don’t plan on wasting it.”

In other action Saturday night, former IBF Junior Featherweight champion “The Canadian Kid” Steve Molitor (30-1, 12 KO’s, IBF #2) will lock horns with Argentina’s Jose “Pamperito” Saez (17-8-4, 8 KO’s) over 8 rounds in the evening’s co-main event.

“I’m in a position where I have to be patient and disciplined. I have a ranking to maintain if I want to get another crack at the world title, but at the same time, I have to feed my family,” Molitor said.

Saez is a dangerous guy with a great opportunity to make a name for himself Saturday night. If I’m not 100% focused, then I won’t get my title shot anytime soon, and will have to start virtually from square-one.”

Both the Sonsona-Hernandez and Molitor-Saez fights will be broadcast in Canada on TSN on Saturday, November 21st, beginning at 10:30 PM, as well as on Solar Sports in the Philippines, and on a national carrier in Mexico.
