Jose Ramirez scored his quickest win as a pro fighter to date, needing just 47 seconds to annihilate Erick Hernandez in their UniMas-televised main event Saturday evening in Lemoore, California.
It was left hook city for the 21-year old super prospect, teeing off on Hernandez to the tune of two knockdowns in the brief encounter. The second knockdown sent Hernandez under the ropes and nearly out of the ring, prompting an immediate stoppage.
Ramirez improves to 7-0 (5KO). Each of his five knockouts have come inside of the first round, though Saturday marked his first in less than a minute.
Hernandez dips below .500, falling to 4-5-1 (2KO).
In the televised co-feature, Alejandro Perez (19-3-1, 13KO) picked up his fourth straight win with a 2nd round stoppage of Miguel Zamudio.
Danny Valdivia (2-0, 2KO) made an unexpected appearance on the telecast with plenty of time to kill thanks to the main bouts ending earlier than expected. The 21-year old made a huge splash, repeatedly sending Matt Dumais to the canvas before forcing a 2nd round stoppage.
