Newly crowned WBC featherweight champion Elio Enai Rojas arrived home in his native Dominican Republic on Saturday morning, after flying from Japan via New York City. Rojas took the belt from Takahiro Aoh via unanimous decision on July 14th. After being mobbed by enthusiastic fans, posing for photos and signing autographs, Rojas traveled through Santiago to his hometown of Villa Riva, San Francisco de Macoris. Rojas is the Dominican Republic’s only reigning world champion.

    For 18 years, Fightnews.com® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.

    Please consider helping out. You’re not obligated to, but even a $1 pledge would really help. And if we reach our goal, we plan to upgrade our server and maybe even nuke the ads altogether. Wouldn’t that be nice?
