 "I’m ready to show the world how hard I have worked and trained for this moment,” said Ramirez.  “And to do it at home for my city -- to bring awareness to our immigration issues and to get the Temperance Flat dam built for water storage, makes it that much more important to me,” said Ramirez.

"Jose is headlining the largest televised sporting event in our city's history,” said Rick Mirgian, Ramirez’s advisor.  “The combination of ESPN's coverage in a Top-10 Arena and a homecoming fight for a local hero on the big stage will make this a very special night."

The previous Top Rank events at the Save Mart Center, headlined by Jose produced a sellout of 13,700 last December, and 13,100 in 2015.

One of the most prestigious arenas in America, 'Venues Today,' a leading industry publication, listed the Save Mart Center among its 'Top Stops' for venues in the 10,000 to 15,000 capacity category. The venue came in as the No. 1 ranked collegiate venue, No. 4 in the U.S. and No. 12 based on concert grosses. Save Mart Center was one of seven SMG-managed arenas to rank in the Top 10 in this size category.
