The Puerto Rican Jesus Rojas received this Thursday February 8 in Caguas, Puerto Rico, his World Boxing Association (WBA) Interim Featherweight Champion belt.

The event took place on the terrace of the Caguas City Hall in the afternoon and was attended by the mayor, William Miranda Torres, who said: “Last September 15, (Rojas) won a resounding victory at the MGM in Las Vegas. Because of the situations that occurred within the atmospheric systems that affected the country, we had not recognized the feat”.
