Gilberto Ramirez Shuts Out Derrick Findley Over Ten

By Jake Donovan

String-bean middleweight prospect Gilberto Ramirez put his massive height and reach advantage to good use in cruising past Derrick Findley over 10 rounds Saturday evening at the Civic Center in Glendale, California.

All three judges scored the bout 100-90 in favor of Ramirez, who was never in trouble at any point in the fight. The only draw back was that there also never existed the threat of the unbeaten middleweight ending the fight early.

Findley was game for the cause and virtually unfazed by his opponent's literally sizeable advantages. However, determination gave way to reality and physics, as the journeyman simply couldn't work his way inside. Ramirez boxed masterfully, whether sticking his jab from the outside, or laying on the ropes and playing the role of counter puncher.

Ramirez improves to 26-0 (20KO) after a successful U.S. debut. The 6'2" southpaw has fought primarily in his native Mexico prior to Saturday evening.

Findley falls to 20-11-1 (13KO), winless in his last four contests. The Chicagoland middleweight played a part in chasing Andrzej Fonfara up to light heavyweight, knocking out the popular Polish boxer in two rounds back in July '08 on ESPN2. He is 8-9-1 since that fight, while Fonfara is now a legitimate light heavyweight contender.

A minor upset occurred on the televised undercard, as Isaac Zarate scored a majority decision over previously unbeaten Erik Ruiz in their six-round super lightweight clash. Scores were 57-57 even, and Zarate-favored cards of 58-56 and a what-the-(he)ck-were-you-watching tally of 60-54.

This writer is biased. Sure, the Mexican had a height advantage but his foe had the bidy of a gorilla, full of muscles, stronger. When a Mexican is shorter, which is usually the case, these so called " neutral "…
