Ramos on Rigondeaux Battle: Bring It, I'm Way Better!

By Chris LaBate

WBA super bantamweight champion Rico Ramos (20-0, 11KOs) is ready for the next challenge. Last month he came from behind to score a seventh round knockout over Akifumi Shimoda in Atlantic City. Ramos captured the WBA crown, but now he has an even tougher challenger in his path. Two-time Olympic Gold medal winner, and amateur superstar, Guillermo Rigondeaux (8-0, 6KOs), is salivating for a crack at the belt. Rigondeaux is the interim-champion, which makes him the mandatory to Ramos' title.

"Bring it. If that's what the fans want to see, then it's going to happen. A lot of people will doubt me, but they've never seen my A-game. He's a tough and strong and fast, but I'm better....way better and faster. I think he still has an amateur style. He gets his points and gets out. And I noticed that he slows down in the later rounds, like [the opponent] in my last fight," Ramos said to BoxingScene.com's Ernest Gabion.

[QUOTE=CubanGuyNYC;10958707][B]Judging Guillermo by one punch in one fight is being pretty harsh, in my opinion.[/B] I agree that Rigo wasn't hit by a great shot. However, he only touched the canvass with his glove. The ref then started the count.…
