Mioletti Cabrera made his professional debut on March 22, 2016. Less than two months later he fought for the first time at the Emerald Queen Casino, defeating Jeremy McCleary, who entered the contest with a solid 8-2 record. Cabrera Mioletti won convincingly by unanimous decision.
He followed up that victory by defeating Gavino Guaman at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago – the first of three undefeated fighters Cabrera Mioletti faced over a 10-month span. He would hand each of them their first setback.
“Fighting at the Battle at the Boat has always been a great experience,” Mioletti Cabrera said. “I was born in Seattle so I love being on the grounds that helped mold me into a fighter. The fans here know and love boxing and are a great crowd to be in front of.”

After besting 8-0 Roberto Meza to close out last year, Mioletti Cabrera opened 2018 with his greatest triumph to date as he beat IBF’s former USBA lightweight champion Tyrone Harris (26-11, 16 KOs) on Jan. 13 via unanimous decision. Harris was also the 2000 national golden gloves featherweight champion making him a top prospect in the early 2000s.
“I expect to establish myself in 2018 as a world (title) contender,” Mioletti Cabrera said. “I’m ready to prove myself in the ring against anyone who wants to test their chances. Training has been great so far (in 2018). I haven’t stopped since my last win in January. I’m in the best shape I have ever been in my life and I’m getting stronger.”
