Adan Gonzales: 19-Year-Olds in My Gym Hit Harder Than Robeisy Ramirez

Robeisy Ramirez (3-1) gets his chance at revenge on Thursday when he faces Adan Gonzales (5-2-2) in a rematch of their October bout that Gonzales won by split decision.  The scores were 40-35 and 39-6 for Gonzales and 38-37 for Ramirez.

The outcome was one of the biggest upsets of 2019. Ramirez was a highly decorated amateur having won gold medals in 2012 and 2016 for his native Cuba.

Gonzales finished his training inside of "The Bubble" at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - where all of the Top Rank fights on ESPN will take place at least through the end of August. He said that he has had a great training camp in spite of all the difficulties the covid-19 pandemic has presented. 

"Everything has been perfect. Everything went the way it is supposed to go. I am staying," Gonzales told


Talks of a Ramirez-Gonzales rematch began almost immediately after their first fight ended. Gonzales said that the original plan was for the rematch to take place on June 6th but Top Rank decided to have Yeuri Andjuar face Ramirez instead.

The delay turned out to be a blessing in disguise because Gonzales only would have had 2 weeks to train for the June date.

"We were supposed to clash on June 6th but he fought Andjuar instead and I pretty much got pushed out of the picture till July 2nd. I have been stuck in a rematch clause so legally I wasn't allowed to take another fight since the first fight, said Gonzales. "It got pushed out of the way which was annoying on my part. I was coming off a big win and couldn't capitalize on it then but it's all good and I am ready to go."

As for the fight itself, Gonzales is very confident that he will pick up another victory. He wasn't impressed at anything Ramirez did in the ring and said that he doesn't pack any powers in his punches.

"He is still an amateur bro. He isn't on my level. I am not saying like I am someone super important right now but people will definitely know who I am after Thursday night. He doesn't have a jab or anything. His style is just like an amateur," said Ramirez.

"He caught me once in the 4th round. That was his only clean shot and it didn't even phase or wobble me. I go to war in my gym where they hit way harder. There are 19 year-olds in my gym who hit harder than him."

We all know Gonzales is just continuing with the insults just so he can get Ramirez to fight frustrated. In any case, this is unfair for Gonzales given that he’s not fought in 11 months while Ramirez has had 3…

He's earned the right to gloat for the rest of his life. I guarantee he's a hero just like Dicky Eklund in his hometown, and he never has to accomplish anything else.
