Rojas stays on track for title shot

WRAM Boxing (William Ramirez) and Nica Boxing (Pablo Osuna) put on another exciting fight card for the locals in Managua, Nicaragua, Saturday afternoon. The event took place at the Gimnasio Nicarao and featured former world champion and current World Boxing Association (WBA) mandatory minimumweight world title challenger Byron “El Gallito” Rojas (24-3-3, 11 KOs). It was the first fight for Rojas since last December, but there were no signs of ring rust. He was in excellent shape against his very game opponent and countryman Daniel Mendoza (9-3, 3 KOs). Mendoza came out firing but Rojas was simply too much. He dropped Mendoza for times in route to a third round stoppage. Rojas is next up to face champion Thammanoon Niyomtrong (a.k.a. CP Freshmart, 18-0, 7 KOs).
