Entering the ring at the young age of 10, Caguas, Puerto Rico's Jesus Rojas has been a brawler since elementary school. Entering boxing as a young child, he has never stopped, with 200 plus amateur fights representing Puerto Rico at home and abroad. At the age of 18, the gladiator decided to turn pro, quickly demolishing all his opponents that stormed his way. It was in a tough loss against fighter Jose Angel Beranza in which he hurt his hand, keeping him out of the ring for a short time. Since his first and only loss, Rojas has turned up the heat in the ring, proving to the boxing world that he was not to be forgotten, facing tough opponents throughout New York, California, and abroad. Rojas became a household name when he faced off veteran warrior Jorge "Travieso" Arce at the MGM's Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Scoring the No Contest decision, Rojas' popularity grew within the boxing aficionados. Rojas proceeded to take on a slew of fighters including Juan Jose Beltran, Juan Carlos Pena, and Jorge Lara. His last performance in the ring was fighting for the vacant WBA-NABA featherweight title against Kiun Evans, which he won via first round knockout. Signing officially with Golden Boy Promotions this September, the 29-year-old, is ready to represent Golden Boy in a new era of his career, becoming one of the hottest prospects to hit the 126 pound division.
