The return of world ranked super middleweight contender Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez (31-0, 24 KOs) has been pushed back by two weeks. He was scheduled to return on June 12th against Derek Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs), but the match is now taking place on June 26th. 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.
"Derek Edwards beat the world champion in one round. Winning this fight can place me in a more suitable place as a world title contender. I know he is a tough fighter, a tough fighter who always comes forward and we are already working on the strategy to beat him," revealed Ramirez who is completing his training in the Zapari Boxing Gym in Mazatlan, Mexico.
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 holds the WBC super middleweight title.
