Hairon ‘El Maja’ Socarras returns to the ring after a short period of inactivity. The 24-year-old Cuban trained with his team in Miami, enthusiastically and is ready to return at the “Friday Night Boxing” event presented by Hard Hitting Promotions at the Sugarhouse Casino in Philadelphia on Friday, February 3rd.

“In 2017 I will be very busy; this fight is the beginning of a very active season. I expect to perform between 4 and 5 fights and put my name again in the featherweight rankings. I have been training lightly to maintain the condition and this month we are moving intensely to deliver a great fight next month in Philadelphia,” said Socarras.

“Hairon is an extraordinary fighter, we are really excited. Everyone knows the Socarras power and we hope to see it in this fight. We believe that Hairon has the talent to get far and mix with the best featherweights in the world. He was classified in the WBC but due to inactivity, he was displaced. Now we are going to support him and we are confident that he will soon be at the best level,” said Hard Hitting Promotions representatives.

In January at Jorge Rubio’s gym in Miami, the Socarras team met to continue the workouts. “We are close to the best physical and technical level.
