SAN CARLOS, Sonora, Mexico (November 20, 2020) - Last night, unbeaten Juan "Just Business" Barajas and Bruno "Tiburon" Sandoval battled to an 8-round draw in the main event on the latest RJJ Boxing on UFC Fight Pass, presented by Roy Jones Jr. Boxing Promotions (RJJ) and De La O Promotions, at Marinaterra Hotel Spa and Event Center in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico.

The outdoor show from Mexico was streamed live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world's leading digital subscription service for combat sports. To sign up for UFC FIGHT PASS, please visit www.ufcfightpass.com

The 24-year-old Barajas (11-0-1, 7 KOs), fighting out of Victorville, California, remained unbeaten, albeit fighting to a draw with Mexican knockout artist Sandoval (21-4-2, 17 KOs), but the World Boxing Council (WBC) Latino super middleweight title remains vacant.

Barajas won 97-93 on one of the judges' scorecards, lost 96-94 on the second, and the third judge scored the fight 95-95.

In the co-featured event, Mexican middleweight Jesus "Mazo" Moroyoqui Palomares (6-0-1, 4 KOs) remained unbeaten by winning a 6-round unanimous decision against his fellow countryman, previously undefeated Jaime Portillo (3-1, 3 KOs).

Cuban heavyweight Geovany "La Bestia" Bruzon (3-0, 3 KOs), now fighting out of Guatemala, stopped Jesus "Dandy" Nerio (14-9-1, 6 KOs) in the third round. Bruzon, 22, was the 2014 Cuban National Youth champion. The gifted southpaw displayed his great hand speed and power against Nerio.

Orlando, Florida junior lightweight Jonathan Lopez (1-0, 1 KO) had a successful pro debut, knocking out Edwin "La Sombra" Salcido (3-4, 2 KOs) midway through the opening round.
