Julian Ramirez Taking No Shortcuts, Welcomes Hard Work

By Francisco Salazar

In less than one year, unbeaten Julian Ramirez has fought professionally six times, sparred against world class competition, and has fought on television.

Not bad for a 19 year old.

While young adults his age are trying to find themselves amongst the facts of life, Ramirez has accomplished things in boxing that not too many do. While Ramirez is proud of his accomplishments, he thinks that the best is yet to come.

Ramirez (6-0, 5 KOs) is coming off a first round technical knockout over Sergio Najera at the Fantasy Springs Resort and Casino in Indio, CA. It was his third straight stoppage in a row, and his fourth knockout that came in the opening round.

While he has gained a great amount of experience sparring in the Los Angeles-area, Ramirez traveled across the Atlantic Ocean to spar unbeaten super bantamweight Scott Quigg in England.

While Ramirez absorbs verbal advice from trainers, it was Quigg’s actions that left an impression on the East Los Angeles resident.

“Seeing him turn into an animal in the gym and the way he trains, I learned a lot from him,” said Ramirez to Boxingscene.com last week. “There are sacrifices that you make in boxing, but he showed me the little things that matter a lot. From what you eat to the different techniques in the gym, I took everything in.”

While Ramirez has showed to be a busy bee thus far, he wants to continue that trend for 2013.

His manager, Joel De La Hoya, is targeting for Ramirez to fight at least five times this year. With one fight out of the way thus far in 2013, Ramirez hopes that number increases.

“I’m hoping I can fight at least seven times this year,” said Ramirez, who has sparred with lightweight world title belt holder Miguel Vazquez. “Why hold me back? I have lots of experience fighting these champions (and contenders).

While Ramirez remains unbeaten, there will be a time and place when he faces the tougher opposition. His fan-friendly style has attracted more fans, and he is eager to get better by putting in time in the gym.

Not a bad outlook for the 19 year old. While some people his age are still finding themselves towards a career or a passion, Ramirez is way ahead of the curve.

“I love putting in work, they give me good results. I like working hard and keep this momentum going. I know there are a lot of titles, but my goal is to be a world champion"
