Former cruiserweight titlist Victor Ramirez continues his comeback, scoring a 10-round decision over Mariano Ruben Diaz for his second straight win Saturday evening in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Scores were 100-90 (twice) and 98-92 in favor of Ramirez, who returned to the ring last December following a four-year hiatus.

The wide scores weren't entirely indicative of the action in the ring. Ramirez was given a stiff challenge during the first half of the contest, as countryman Diaz wasn't particularly interested in playing the role of opponent.

Ramirez eventually settled in, taking over the fight for good in the second half. The action was uneven for the most part, the type of fight old timers would describe as "win today, look good the next time." Ramirez finished strong, putting considerable distance between himself and his opponent in terms of talent and execution.

The win advances Ramirez' record to 17-3 (13KO), as the 29-year old continues his pursuit of another run towards a cruiserweight title. An interim title reign - which began five years ago - ended with an Aug. '09 points loss to Marco Huck, who remains a titlist and near the top of the division.

Ramirez left the ring for four years following the loss before returning last December. A 1st round knockout of Thabiso Mogale revealed little, whereas he received a far better night's work against Diaz, who has now lost three straight as he falls to 11-9-1 (6KO).
