Hot Cuban Prospect Hairon Socarras Ready For Fight Night

By Reynaldo "El Maestro" Sanchez 

Undefeated super bantamweight prospect Hairon “El Maja” Socarras 11-0-1 (8 KOs) makes his third ring appearance of 2014 as he faces David Warren in a 6 round bout Thursday evening at Serbian American Cultural Center in Weirton, West Virginia.

The bout is slated for a contracted weight of 125 lb., which Socarras made with ease during Wednesday’s weigh-in. The same could not be said for his opponent; Warren came in more than a full weight class over the limit, tipping the scales at 131 lb. 

By commission rules, Warren should have been subject to a fine and also with the option of the fight being canceled altogether due to safety precautions. Ever the professional, Socarras agreed to move forward to fight night.  

"We came from Florida to fight, being overweight is not a problem for me and accept it up with that disadvantage" said Socarras, who has gained a reputation as one of the hottest Cuban prospects in the game today. "I walked to the showers to tell Warren personally not sacrifice more than 131 pounds. We accepted to fight. He shook my hand and thanked me.

“Now just wait for the start of the fight, I'll give my best as I always do and hopefully get another win. I know it's not easy; Warren is a fighter with a lot of experience and I know it will not be easy, but I prepared very well and I hope to reach another triumph for all my people in Miami and in all places that support my career.”

Socarras is one of the best Cuban prospects, which is saying a lot considering the wealth of talent to come from the nation. He trains under the guidance of Veloz Boxing in Miami, and is coached by Jorge Rubio in South Florida. Included among his stablemates are reigning World super bantamweight king Guillermo Rigondeaux.

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;14723652]That's incredible, for such a young pro to be working with a guy like Rigo. Hairon has an aggressive style. If you pair it with some defensive wizardry, it should make for a tough combination.[/QUOTE] You haven't seen their old…
