The 2016 – RING 8 – PROSPECT OF THE YEAR is ready for his return to ring.Evander Holyfield’s Real Deal Sports and Entertainment will present its first card in New York City as numerous contenders and world class prospects from the tri-state area will see action on Saturday, September 9 at the Resorts World Casino in Queens, New York, it was announced today by their COO, Eric Bentley.Said Holyfield, “New York City is truly the capital of boxing and I always felt that way when I fought here. The toughest and best fighters and most knowledgeable and passionate fans are from here and this show will meet the standard that this city has set for decades.”
“Our team is thrilled to promote the first Real Deal Sports and Entertainment event in New York City at the Resorts World Casino in Queens on Friday, September 9,” said Bentley.
“We’re excited to promote this world class event for the great boxing fans in the Tri-State area.”
In his last fight, the talented Sosa scored a third-round TKO stoppage of his opponent back on April 22 at the Barclays Center.
On September 9, live at the Resorts World Casino in Jamaica, Queens, he is scheduled to face Sommer Martin, (7-5, 4 KOs). Martin, who won his last fight by unanimous decision on 8-27-17, will be dropping down from middleweight to welterweight to face Sosa.
The heralded prospect Sosa sees no advantages from his opponent’s standpoint, with the expected difference in weight.
“I can fight anywhere between 140-147 pounds,” Sosa said, “The weight difference will not bother me.”
“My job is to train for whoever they send in front of me. My job is to get prepared to face whoever is on the other side of the ring. Whoever is put in front of me, I will do what I need to do to get the win.”
“Ever since my last fight I went right back into the gym. I didn’t take any breaks off. Literally, the next day, I was back in the gym training for my next fight. I have my same rhythm and right now I’m just waiting for to fight.”
At twenty-one years of age, Sosa is wise beyond his years and a student of the sweet science. From watching his father (former boxer and one of New York City’s best Trainers Aurielano Sosa) leave the household for hours, he became “intrigued” as to where his father would go during these times.The young man would ask the question, and soon find the answer, for his passion of boxing.
“As an adolescent, I was always curious to know where my father was because I noticed that he wasn’t home at certain hours and times of the day. One day I asked him where does he go during these times. He took me to the gym and I immediately fell in love with the environment. Not only because it was something new to me, but I was also really intrigued.”
“I can remember telling my father that I wanted to go with him to the gym every day. From that day on, I wanted to learn the basics of boxing. I then realized that boxing adds structure and discipline to a person’s life.”
“Some people box for training purposes (to stay in shape). Others box because it’s a way of life. Some people box to keep themselves away from the negativity and from the street life. Boxing gives me these same elements to balance my life.”
Sosa, a Mexican-American fighter, continues to capture the delight and hearts of his fans from all over. His fan base grows with each fight. He’s often compared to a young Oscar De La Hoya and Saul “Canelo” Alvarez, both of whom he looks up to and admires for representing the country of Mexico with such pride.“To be compared to De La Hoya and Alvarez means a lot to me. Being compared to both men is surreal. I am deeply humbled but I don’t let the comparisons go to my head. I still have a lot to learn and more fighting to do.”
“All the hard work, the training that I’m doing, it shows that people are paying attention. It is my job to continue to train hard and fight my best for everyone that believes in me.”
“We have since progressed from the amateur ranks and now to the professional ranks. We are fighting for our family and for our people each time out.”
“My people are very prideful. I receive tons of support on social media from my Mexican People. When it comes to my fights, they always come out to support me. With every fight, my fan base gets bigger and bigger. Being of Mexican heritage, I have that warrior spirit in me. Each time I fight, I represent my culture, my heritage, my people. That’s very important to me.”
Being the son of a former boxer and one of Boxing’s best Trainers (Aurielano Sosa), Sosa remains a humble man outside of the ring. Yes, he has the face of a model, along with a smile that can light up a room, but what he also possesses is something that a fighter must have in boxing: killer instinct.“Boxing is a brutal sport: it’s man against man. It’s just you against me – me against you.” – Julian Sosa
“I’ve learned how to put away the friendliness when I enter the ring. I’ve learned that from my father. When you fight, there’s no friends involved. When I’m in the ring, my entire demeanor changes. The switch changes from being nice to handling business.”
“This is my job. In this job, people get hurt so I take it very serious. This isn’t a regular job but the job must get done. It’s no smiles, no love. That’s why every time I step inside the ring, I turn that switch off and focus on defeating my opponent.”
Sosa is dynamic in more ways than one. The avid lover of music possesses talent with both his hands and his voice. His lyrical skills, combined with his undeniable boxing talent, and the support from his family and community, Sosa is destined for stardom.
His love for music (Hip-Hop) has transcended one of his musical tracks, featured on the great boxing documentary “The Counter Punch”, which also featured the story on his stablemate, another talented New York City prospect Christopher “Lil Bhop” Colbert (6-0, 2 KOs).
“I appreciate the love and support from everyone who contacts me about my music and my boxing career. They are all a big reason as to why I fight. Any support that I receive I’m appreciative. I’m just humbled by everything.”
“My motivation to fight is for my family and my people. They are my blood. They are my pride and keep me strong, keep me focused on achieving greatness. I want to make every single person of my heritage and family proud when I fight. No matter the situation, I am going to give 100%.”“To my friends and family, it’s only to the top from here. My vow to you all is that when you see me on fight night, you’ll see my progression. You’ll see from this performance that I’ve become a better fighter since my last fight. From here on out, you will see me continue to step up the competition and take my career to the next level. I appreciate and love you all.”Tickets priced at $150 (VIP Ringside), $125, $75 and $50 can be purchased online at www.RWNewYork.com.
