Michael Walsh is unhappy with Hairon Socarras, opponent of his brother Ryan Walsh, at their Golden Contract weigh-in
Tensions often flare at weigh-ins. Boxers are hungry, depleted and just a day away from the fight itself. It started fairly inoccuously as Ryan Walsh took to the scales for his Golden Contract featherweight quarter-final with Cuban Hairon Socarras. The latter’s trainer complained he did not see Ryan weigh in and this kicked off a war of words that culminated in ex-pro Michael Walsh, Ryan’s older brother, threatening to break Socarras’ jaw.
