Jesús Soto Karass (born October 15, 1982) is a Mexican professional boxer who has challenged once for the WBA interim welterweight title in 2013. His older brother is José Luis Soto Karass, also a professional boxer.[1]

Professional career[edit]

Soto Karass holds wins over Michel Rosales, Saúl Román, Carson Jones, Vince Phillips, David Estrada, and Andre Berto. He is signed to Bob Arum's Top Rank.[2] His fight with Gabriel Martínez was ruled a No Contest after an unintentional headbutt.[3]

Soto Karass vs. Jones I, II[edit]

Jesús lost to Mike Jones on the undercard of Margarito vs. Pacquiao in Dallas on November 13, 2010. This fight was a huge controversy after the fight when the decision was ruled in favor of Mike Jones after a hard fought battle which saw Mike Jones become exhausted after the second round due to an attempt at finishing the fight. A rematch for this fight happened on February 19, 2011, with Karass losing a convincing fight holding his side.[4]
