19 professional fights, 18 wins including 12 by KO. US Sonny Fredrickson, born July 15, 1994 in Toledo, Ohio, may not be the most talented of his generation, but he is one of the rising stars.
He became pro at the age of 19, after an amateur career crowned with two Ohio championship titles and a national PAL crown. When he is offered by the WBA to fight for the Fedebol belt super light weight in November 2017, Sonny Fredrickson is still unbeaten (17 wins).
The challenge is high, almost crazy… He has to face the unbeaten Colombian Placido Ramirez in Medellin… Colombia. The American fighter then writes the most beautiful page of his young history : he knocks out his opponent in the 3rd round, wins his 18th victory in as many fights and takes the title.
He will lose for the first time in January 2018 against the undefeated Uzbek Shojahon Ergashev. Sonny Fredrickson is currently ranked N°8 in the world by the WBA and N°2 by the USBA.
