Welterweight Xander Zayas, of Plantation, Florida, who was 16 when he became the youngest fighter to ever sign with Top Rank in its 53-year history in March, turned 17 on Sept. 5 and will make his professional debut Oct. 26 (ESPN+) in Reno, Nevada, on the undercard of the Shakur Stevenson-Joet Gonzalez vacant featherweight world title bout. Zayas is in the process of going through the licensing process and his medical exams in anticipation of his pro debut, manager Peter Kahn told ESPN on Monday. Zayas, who was born in Puerto Rico and was 118-14 as an amateur, began boxing at age 5.
