the guy last fought at super flyweight and has spent most of his young career at flyweight. why throw him in there with an undefeated super bantamweight with an 82% KO percentage?

i guess it made perfect sense coming into the fight as the kid was having trouble making the super flyweight limit and a title opportunity opened up, but now that you've seen the result, looking back, don't you think a few precautions could have been taken by his handlers to prevent this sort of devastation from happening, like, say, A TUNE-UP FIGHT?!

or is it perfectly reasonable to expect every untested young prospect (his best opponent prior to vasquez was a 37-year-old guy with seven losses in jose 'carita' lopez) to move up the scales as gracefully as manny has?

mind you, when manny jumped two weight classes to super bantamweight earlier in his career he was already a veteran of 28 pro fights and had a chiseled, battle-hardened physique. the same cannot be said about sonsona.

poor handling & bad training. early in mannys carreer when manny was asking nazario for a fight with barrera, nazario told him that he was not ready that he has first to gain experience. it took a couple of fights before nazario felt that it was time, he didnt rush manny. match making is very important in a boxers carreer you could see that in other successful boxers. they bring them up slowly, feed them with right opposition according to their experience. if a 19yr old sonsona fights a19 yr old vasquez who you'd think would win?

he has potential..


but obviously greedy handlers took advantage..


it took manny a lot of fights and developed after his lost to 3k battery (age 20) before fighting again for the ibf junior feather title (age 23)..

kay Sonsona gano katagal?? :shock:

both in thier young age on training habits. ..marvin vs manny..its miles apart.

Think Marvin tried to emulate what Pac did vs Cotto (rounds 3 &4), when he (MS) dared Benitez in the corner to bring it on. Problem is Sonsona can't handle the shots. Now, he knows that there is only one Manny Pac! 8)

Poor handling of the managers led to the loss of Marvin....
Too much too soon....
The kid shouldn't been given tune up fights before being matched with the champ on that division...
The kid had potential....
Hope the kid and the managers learn from this....
