Puerto Rican native Jesus Rojas (26-2-2, 19 KO’s) returns to the ring this Saturday, January 26th, in a match against the Asian Can Xu (15-2, 2 KO’s), in a defense of his featherweight championship of the World Boxing Association (WBA).

The fight will be held the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, and will be promoted by Golden Boy Promotions and transmitted on live streaming by DAZN.

Rojas will fulfill the first defense of his 126 pound title while Xun, on the other hand, will take part in his first world title fight.

“The Monster”, as Xun Can is known by, comes off of a string of wins since 2015 and Rojas will look to return to the path of victory after his recent defeat against the American Joseph “JoJo” Diaz in a non-title match.
