Bio

Rau’shee Warren is one of the most decorated amateur fighters in U.S. history, and the only boxer to make three U.S. Olympic teams. “Baby Pit” has continued to thrive as a professional, first winning a 118-pound title on his second attempt, and now seeking another world championship at 115.

Ever since his first amateur fight at the age of 8, Rau'shee Warren has piled up plenty of victories in the ring.

A quick study in the ring

Rau’shee Warren can barely remember a time when he wasn’t involved in boxing. He took up the sport at the age of 6 in his native Cincinnati, and won his first amateur fight when he was 8.

At the age of 17, Warren surprisingly qualified for the 2004 Athens Olympics, representing the U.S. boxing team at 106 pounds.

He was the youngest boxer in the Games, and the youngest male athlete on the U.S. Olympic team, but his storybook run ended when he was beaten by China’s Zou Shiming in the first round.

Becoming a three-time Olympian

Warren soon moved up to the 112-pound division, and won the U.S. championship in 2005 and 2006. He also won the bronze medal at the 2005 World Amateur Championships in Mianyang, China.

After being named USA Boxing’s co-athlete of the year in 2006, Warren repeated as U.S. champion in 2007, and also won the World Amateur Boxing Championships in Chicago, where he defeated Thailand’s Somjit Jongjohor.

Warren again qualified for the Olympics in 2008, becoming the first U.S. boxer to compete in two Olympic Games since Davey Lee Armstrong in 1972 and ’76, but again lost in the first round, dropping a controversial decision to South Korea’s Lee Ok-sung.

Warren elected to remain an amateur, and moved up to the 119-pound division. He reached the semifinals of the 2009 U.S. Nationals, but lost to eventual champion Jesus Magdaleno.

Warren won the 2011 U.S. Olympic trials to become the first American boxer to qualify for three Olympics, however, he failed to advance past the first round at the London Games when he lost a tight 19-18 decision to France’s Nordine Oubaali.

Early success as a professional

Soon after the 2012 Olympics, the 25-year-old Warren stepped up to the pro ranks, winning his debut in November 2012 with a four-round unanimous decision over Luis Rivera in Indio, California.

After running out to a 10-0 record, Warren passed the biggest test of his career in May 2014, when won a 10-round decision over Ricardo Alvarado in Las Vegas. Warren put Alvarado on the mat in the second and ninth rounds as he cruised to a 99-87 win on all three judges’ scorecards.

In December 2014, Warren’s tilt with Javier Gallo was ruled a no contest after an accidental head butt in the first round.

They met again in March 2015, and this fight also didn’t go past the first round as Warren gained a quick technical knockout to improve to 13-0 with four KOs.
