Ramirez is a good fighter because he has 44 victories in 44 fights, he has good body punches, he makes the weight well, he’s confident. I think, first of all, it will be a great fight because we both want to win. We both don’t know what losing is, and when people are well matched it’s an amazing fight. I wanted to fight him maybe three or four years ago and I said to my team, ‘Let’s make this fight.
In 2016, he became the first Mexican to win a super middleweight world title after dethroning Arthur Abraham. He also became the second Mexican to win a world title in a division heavier than middleweight after Julio César González won the WBO light heavyweight championship in 2003. In 2019, Ramirez moved to the 175 pounds class. He won the NABF light heavyweight title with a TKO of Alfonso Lopez in 2020. His last four fights have been won by knockouts, including his impressive last outing in May 2022 against former IBO and European light heavyweight champion Dominic Boesel.
