Vazquez Jr., son of Puer­to Rican ring great Wil­fre­do Vazquez, took over the fight in round two and bat­tered the 19-year-old for­mer 115lb cham­pi­on who had moved up two divi­sions to the deck in the fourth. A Vazquez left hook to the liv­er end­ed it for Son­sona at the 2:01 mark. He did not beat the count of ref­er­ee Luis Pabon.
