Rojas splits with DKP

By Robert Coster

Former WBC Featherweight Champion Elio Rojas says he has split with his promoter Don King. “Don King did help me get to the title,” admits the Dominican-born Rojas, “but then he abandoned me when I most needed him. During my illness he did nothing to help me stay as champion and he actually seemed to switch sides when I had to fight to reclaim my title.” Rojas (23-2, 14 KOs) won the WBC featherweight title in 2009 and defended it twice before being sidelined for over a year. He tried unsuccessfully to regain his belt in April of this year, losing a decision to Jhonny Gonzales.
