An interesting rematch is set for next Friday (April 20) at the National Guard Armory in Northeast Philly.  Philly's Angel Ocasio, a rising lightweight star, will re-engage talented Jason Sosa of South Jersey. In January, they fought to a majority draw.

At 6-0-1, Ocasio is worth keeping an eye on.

The following --- by one of the best boxing writers going, Kurt Wolfheimer --- is from the promoters:


For immediate release:
Philadelphia, PA- There is a score to be settled in the main event  of Greg Robinson’s Power Productions “Philly Barn Burner 3” card on Friday night April 20th at the National Guard Armory in Northeast Philadelphia, when rising lightweight stars, Angel Ocasio (6-0-1, 1KO) and Jason Sosa (4-1-2, 1KO) square off in a highly anticipated eight round rematch.

Both fighters originally stepped into the ring back on January 13th with thoughts of getting a signature victory strapped to their resumes. The highly contested six round battle teetered back and forth, with Mak Boxing Management’s and North Philly lightweight sensation Angel Ocasio using his superior power to bang out the early rounds, and Camden, New Jersey’s Jason Sosa using his hand speed to take the middle rounds. The fight went down to the wire as the near capacity crowd stood on their feet, watching Ocasio and Sosa slug away right until the final bell,  putting it in the judge’s hands. The scores were tallied and the majority draw was announced, which sent the crowd into a crescendo of boos at the unlikely decision.
