After going 0-5-1 in his last six fights, Mexican blood and guts veteran Jesus “El Renuente” Soto Karass was supposed to lose to unbeaten super welterweight prospect Neeco “The Rooster” Macias on Thursday night and then retire. However, Soto Karass (29-13-4, 18 KOs) didn’t follow the script, beating Macias by majority decision. Now the 36-year-old Soto Karass might not hang up his gloves just yet.
“I feel happy. I fought against a great warrior,” said Jesus Soto Karass. “I always say that whether it’s a win, a loss or a draw, the fans always win when they see one of my fights. I will speak with my team to see if this will be my last bout.”
