|Rau'shee Warren connecting upper cut to Arroyo|
In the battle of Olympians Rau'shee Warren outclassed Puerto Rican Mcjoe Arroyo on the Mickey Garcia-Adrien Broner non-televised undercard at Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York. All three judges gave the fight for Warren of Cincinnati Ohio. Scores were 118-110, 117-111, 117-111.
Warren was obviously the sharper and busier fighter throughout the fight. Warren is now the mandatory challenger for IBF world super flyweight title currently held by Filipino puncher Jerwin Ancajas.
This his first fight since losing his WBA/IBO world Bantamweight titles to Kazakhstan's Zhanat Zhakiyanov in February 2017 where he dropped Zhakiyanov twice in first round but the Kazakh boxer came back to earn a 12-round split decision win.
“I feel really good at this weight. Now it’s time for me to go get a strap. I haven’t been at this weight since the Olympics. I want to get these titles and then go down to 112 pounds for another title. First I want to take care of Jerwin Ancajas.” Warren said.
