Rau'shee Warren (born February 13, 1987) is an American amateur boxer and the 2007 flyweight world champion.

Career

Warren hails from the impoverished Westwood community of Cincinnati, Ohio. At the age of 6, he began training at the same East Side gym where former Junior Welterweight champion Aaron Pryor trained in the 1970s and 1980s. Warren won his first amateur fight at the age of 8 years.

At the 1st AIBA American 2004 Olympic Qualifying Tournament in 2004, at the age of 17, he upset Rayonta Whitfield and Diego Hurtado and international competitors Raúl Castañeda (Mexico), and Miguel Miranda (Venezuela) to qualify as the U.S. boxing team's 106-pound light flyweight representative at the 2004 Athens Olympics. He was both the youngest boxer in the games and the youngest US male in all sports. He was eliminated by the favored Zou Shiming of China in the first round.

He moved up to flyweight soon after and in 2005 and 2006 became US champion. At the 2005 World Amateur Boxing Championships in Mianyang he avenged a previous loss to European champion Georgy Balakshin before losing to the Korean surprise winner Lee Ok-Sung and having to settle for bronze.

In 2006 Light middleweight Akima Stocks and Warren were named USA Boxing’s 2006 Athletes of the Year. That year he also moved up to fight as a bantamweight, and lost to highly regarded Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux in November.

In 2007 he returned to the flyweight ranks and repeated as US champion.
