Jose Ramirez is Working Hard on His Technical Skills

USA Olympian Jose Ramirez is in the gym six days a week. The morning begins with a long run, five miles or more, around parks or on mountain paths or "on asphalt or concrete. I like to run outdoors in the fresh air and I like to run on high elevation."

Ramirez, 3-0, 2 KOs, of Avenal, California returns to the ring on Saturday night. He takes on lightweight Christopher Williams of Barranquitas, Puerto Rico at the WinStar World Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma. Ramirez vs Williams will open the Solo Boxeo
Tecate telecast on UniMas (11:30 pm et)

In the gym, Ramirez, 20, said his work week including three days of sparring, three days of strength and conditioning. He and his team last week were at the Wild Card Gym in Hollywood, California for a series of sparring sessions.

Ramirez said he is working on "being more technical with my punches.

"If I am in front of my opponent I am learning how to attack on different angles - not just go in straight ahead.

"I like where I am right now - I am on the right track. I am very determined inside the ring and want to be the very best in my division. I want to learn more. I am very coachable.

"I have other personal goals too, like being the best person I can possibly be. That means a lot to me too," Ramirez said.

If my boy Erick Deleon would have never gotten injured nobody would be talking about Jose Ramirez because Erick would've went to the Olympics no question about that and won a medal. You need to stay tuned to Erick Deleon…

If this is the guy coming from the Olympics, he looks promising. Don't know what it is, but his style reminds me of Oscar Dela Hoya. I'll stay tune.

I have seen Ramirez fight a few times I think he has a bright future bc he seems to be a very good body puncher
