Rajon Chance vs. Elon De Jesus

Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California, USA 18/9/21

Rajon Chance (5–0–1, 5 KOs) battled Elon De Jesus (3–0–1, 2 KOs) to a majority draw (57-55 for Chance, 56-56, 56-56) in a six-round super bantamweight attraction, Saturday from Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California.

De Jesus seemingly jumped out to an early lead, landing several powerful overhand rights in the third round, resulting in a cut opening up on Chance’s forehead.

Chance and De Jesus got twisted up in the fourth round, with Chance bending down to stabilize himself. As Chance leaned forward, De Jesus landed a blow to the back of Chance’s head. Referee Jerry Cantu immediately deducted a point from De Jesus for the infraction.

Midway through the fifth stanza, De Jesus scored a sensational knockdown with a massive right uppercut to Chance’s jaw. Chance picked himself up off the canvas and complained to Cantu that he couldn’t see anything. Cantu called for a timeout to have the ringside physician examine De Jesus’ eyes, and the physician approved the fight to continue.

Although De Jesus dominated the action throughout and scored the only knockdown in the contest, the point deduction resulted in a majority draw. Both Chance and De Jesus maintained their undefeated records.
