Jose Ramirez Returns at Sold Out Golden Eagle Arena

History has been made in the Central Valley with the Solo Boxeo Tecate "Fight for Water" nationally televised fight this Saturday, November 9 featuring U.S. Olympian Jose Ramirez. The 11-time National Champion, London 2012 Olympian and all-time USA Boxing light weight record holder will be featured in the main event on the UniMas broadcast. Further adding to this historic boxing night, the event was sold out three weeks ago along with VIP tables and major sponsors.
 
"Jose Ramirez is one of the brightest stars in boxing and he certainly represents a great deal in the future of boxing. It is wonderful to see Fresno area fans rally to see this young athlete. They will have plenty to cheer about not only on November 9 but in the months and years ahead," said Bob Arum, Hall of Fame promoter.
 
Ramírez (6-0, 4 KOs), of Avenal, Calif, returns to the ring in the area he grew up in, at Golden Eagle Arena on the West Hills College campus in Lemoore,Ca.
 
"I'm looking forward to it," said Ramirez, "It's going to be a big fight, and every aspect of the fight is big. I'm very excited to be a part of this and be able to do this for my fans and do this for my family and for the people that live here and all the sponsors who have helped my career."  Ramirez will take on Erick Hernandez Perez of Arkansas.
 
A news conference on Thursday, November 7 will be held at Tachi Palace Casino at 3 pm local time followed by an invitation-only dinner featuring Hall of Fame announcer Michael Buffer.
 
The weigh-in will take place Friday, November 8, 3 pm at the same location.
 
"I want to thank Tachi Palace Casino and its entire staff, without them we would not have been able to make this fight happen, they really stepped up to support Jose and the Central Valley and believed in us," said Rick Mirigian, Ramirez agent.
 
The fight card has been called "Fight for Water" because Ramirez wants to help make a difference in farm-related employment and their families who lose their jobs when water supplies are reduced. He recently joined the Latino Water Coalition, which aims to help resolve the state's water crisis and to promote economic growth in the place he grew up.
 
Rick Mirigian, Ramirez's agent, said naming the event was a no-brainer. "Jose and his family struggled first hand when the water didn't flow, and times got even harder for his family, who relied on the field work and farming industry," Mirigian said. "It is important that the public and his fans know that no matter how big a fight he has or will ever have, that the biggest fight that could be won is the 'Fight for Water.' "
 
Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino is hosting the press conference, the weigh in, and a special champions dinner, pre and post fight activities that include meet and greets with Ramirez, promotions and more.  They will have a shuttle every 20 minutes to and from the fight which is only 5 minutes away from the property.
