Earlier today team Ioka had the chance to see Roberto Domingo Sosa (26-2-1, 14) take part in his public practice session, which we will be covering later today, ahead of his bout this weekend with WBA Flyweight champion Kazuto Ioka (17-1, 10). Although the event was supposed to be a scouting session of sorts the Ioka team they were apparently very distracted by Sosa's manager, Natalia Rivero.
Rivero, the daughter of Argentinian promoter Oswaldo Rivero, apparently turned the heads of many of those who went to view the training session with many unable to take their eyes off the very attractive 27 year old.
Although the session obviously did have a serious element to it it seems that Ms Rivero has inadvertently become a star in Japan with many papers focusing more on her than her charge. In fact at least 3 papers spoke more about her than the training session of Sosa which seemed to be over-shadowed his manager.
