FILIPINO super-bantamweight Eden Sonsona scored an eighth-round knockout victory over erstwhile world champion Mauricio Pastrana in the undercard of “The Event”.

Sonsona (21-5, 7 KOs), who posted his seventh KO win in 26 fights, decked Pastrana earlier in the round before finishing him off at 1:33.

Sonsona also downed Pastrana (35-13-2, 23 KOs) seconds before the end of the third round with a right-left combination.

In an eight-round bout, Filipino featherweight Michael Farenas (27-2-3, 24 KOs) and Joe Morales (20-13, 4 KOs) saw their fight end in a no contest when a clash of heads in the second round opened an ugly cut over the right eye of Morales.

Farenas was in total control up to the time of the stoppage at 2:25 of the second round. (Sunnex)
