Jesus Poll retained his North American Boxing Federation super-bantamweight championship at Caesars Palace Friday night by knocking challenger Julian Solis down in the third round and going on to win a close, but unamimous, 12-round decision. The victory kept Poll, 122, a Venezuelan fighting out of the Ten Goose Boxing Club of North Hollywood, unbeaten with a 19-0-2 record. Solis, a Puerto Rican training in Connecticut, fell to 38-8-1.

Jesus Poll insisted he was all right. That's the message he sent to his corner. That's the message he gave referee Lou Moret. The problem was, he couldn't get the message through to his legs. They deserted twice him in the 10th round of Tuesday night's World Boxing Assn. 12-round junior featherweight title fight at the Forum before a crowd of 4,861. The first time, a pair of solid lefts from champion Juan Jose Estrada of Tijuana caused Poll to wobble around and eventually collapse in his corner.

After Jesus Poll won the North American Boxing Federation super bantamweight title here last spring, he knew he was going to have to struggle to defend it. But he never dreamed that the struggle would take place outside the ring. After beating Louie Espinoza at Caesars Palace for the title, Poll was barred from fighting for several months because of his failure to pass a neurological test administered by the California State Athletic Commission.

Poll, a Venezuelan living in North Hollywood and training at the Ten Goose Boxing Club, will fight Allan Makitoki of Stockton in a scheduled 10-round bout at the Country Club in Reseda.

The first surprise Wednesday night came when former North American Boxing Federation bantamweight champion Frankie Duarte fought seven rounds and didn't spill any blood. The second surprise came after the fight, when his trainer spilled the beans. The trainer, Greg Goossen of the Ten Goose Boxing Club in North Hollywood, said that Duarte will fight Oct. 12 in Las Vegas on the undercard of the rematch between Thomas Hearns and Iran Barkley.

For Jesus Poll, it was a brief detour. For Hugo Anguiano, it proved to be a road to main-event status. Poll, the newest member of the Ten Goose Boxing stable in North Hollywood, had been scheduled to put his unbeaten record (15-0-2, five knockouts) on the line last month in a Reseda Country Club main event against Rodolfo Ortega. Instead, Poll put his elbows on a ringside table and watched that main event, a spectator by virtue of a cut lip suffered in a sparring session.
