Diego Ramirez Drops, Stops Bradley Skeete In Brentwood

By Elliot Foster

Diego Ramirez stopped Bradley Skeete inside two rounds to claim a fringe WBO belt.

The Argentine took on the former British and Commonwealth champion, exclusively live on BT Sport, on Saturday night.

Ramirez, 23, was being largely outboxed at the Brentwood Centre in Essex, but he found a left hook to drop the Londoner.


Skeete, who was ousted inside two rounds back in April when he travelled to Bilbao to take on Kerman Lejarraga for the European title, got back to winning ways at the same venue back in October.

But the referee, Bob Williams, allowed him to continue, despite being on unsteady legs after getting up from the Ramirez shot that saw him on the canvas and ultimately saw the visitor clinch the vacant WBO International welterweight crown.

Skeete, however, wasn’t all there and the referee, shortly after, called a halt to proceedings after just two minutes and 33 seconds of the second round, meaning that ‘Super’, at 31, will now have to decide whether he is prepared –– along with coaches Alan Smith and Eddie Lam –– to do the required rebuilding job to get back to the top following two crushing defeats in the space of eight months.

Meanwhile, there was a third paid win for 23-year-old Hainault cruiserweight James Branch Jr.

The southpaw, who only made his professional bow back in June, beat Remigijus Ziausys on points over four rounds.
