Mexico's Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez (28-0, 22 KOs) continues his hard slog preparation for the defense of his North American Boxing Federation (NABF) super middleweight crown on July 19th in Macau, China, as part of the card named "Champions of Gold", against Australian, Junior "Single" Talipeau (20-2-1, 7 KOs).
In Carson City, California, with the guidance of his manager Jesus Zapari, and coach, Hector Zapari, he has increased and intensified his physical and athletic workload in order to reach peak physical condition for his appointment.
Concerning training sessions, Ramirez relies on Terrell Gausha, a former Olympian and in Jason Quigley, who's a European amateur champion. Thanks to them he's developed a high mobility, which will be essential when he faces highly mobile Junior Talipeau.
"It has given me a lot of confidence to train with fighters of different styles including puncher boxers and smart boxers. We have been progressing slowly and steadily. My team and I are always working to improve," Gilberto explained.
The clash with Talipeau heralds Gilberto's debut on HBO2, which may eventually lead an HBO showcase.
