Luis Arias plotting his return as a jr. middleweight

Mayweather Promotions announced the re-signing of Luis “Cuba” Arias to its promotional roster. Arias is 18-2-1 with 9 KOs and is looking forward to making his return to the square circle having last fought in August of 2019. Arias, who lost to Daniel Jacobs in 2017, tweeted "154-pound debut coming soon." Arias is a nine-year pro who began boxing at age eight. As an amateur, Arias’ career saw him become a two-time US Nationals champion, National PAL champion, and the Under-19 National champion while boasting a record of 140-25. In the amateur ranks, Arias defeated Jesse Hart and former pro champions Shawn Porter and Marcus Browne.
 
In November 2012, Luis Arias experienced his first taste of victory as a professional, with a unanimous decision win that activated a 17-fight win streak. Since his last fight, Arias has fine-tuned his craft serving as a sparring partner for Gervonta Davis and Demetrius Andrade while also staying sharp and ready for what lies ahead.
 
 Arias, now 30, trains out of Las Vegas and aims to make a name for himself as the top contender in one of boxing’s most prominent divisions at junior middleweight.
