ST. PAUL -- Tony Bonsante of Crosby-Ironton scored a unanimous 10-round decision over Gustavo Soto of Culiacan, Mexico, in a supermiddleweight fight Thursday at Roy Wilkins Auditorium in the RiverCentre.
Soto was replacing Tony Ayala of San Antonio, Bonsante's original opponent who was unable to make the fight because of legal problems.
"I hit him with a lot of punches," Bonsante said. "He kept coming. Luckily. I had a bigger heart than he did."
Bonsante improved his pro record to 18-3-2. His tentative plan is to box Ayala in March.
