Gilberto Ramirez-Dereck Edwards, June 12 on TruTV

By Miguel Rivera

World ranked super middleweight contender Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez (31-0, 24 KOs) will return on June 12th, at a venue to be determined, against Derek Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs). Ramirez vs. Edwards will be broadcast live in the United States by TruTV.

The Mexican boxer was last seen in January, when he picked up a unanimous decision win over Russian fighter Maxim Vlasov. 

Edwards has extensive experience against some of the very best. He's faced current WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson, former world title contender Matt Korobov and former world champion Andre Dirrell. Some remember Edwards for last year's shocking upset stoppage over previously undefeated Badou Jack, who now has an upcoming title fight with WBC super middleweight ruler Anthony Dirrell.
