Fully concentrated in his camp in California, the first Mexican fighter to become a world at super middleweight, Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez , is focused on his return to the ring, which could happen on November 28 in the light heavyweight division (175 pounds).
In the conversation with Línea Directa, Ramirez was questioned about the possibility of facing countrymen Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.
“Those fights are going to take place, since people ask for them, the fans are the ones who want to see the fights, they are the ones who demand those fights, so they have to get what they want," Ramirez said.
"They are going to look for an exit, but we are going to give the fights to the people, the ones they deserve, everything is possible. At some point they will no longer have any other option but to fight. I always say that the fighter is a fighter and he has to face the best, and you have to beat the best too, to win the affection of the public."
Regarding his return to the ring in November, Ramirez said that he is happy and in ongoing negotiations to reactivate, after being in training during this entire period of the pandemic.
"I'm happy because boxing has already started again, maybe there are going to be people at the fights and I'm very happy about that. Right now we have ongoing talks with different promoters and then it's the goal, to return in November, November 28," Ramirez said.
The undefeated Aztec fighter indicated that he still has no designated opponent for his return. He reiterated that he will continue at 175 pounds in search of another world title, after reigning at 168 from 2016 to 2018, with 5 successful defenses after snatching the WBO title from German star Arthur Abraham.
"Well, I still don't know [who I'm fighting], it's what I'm looking at, what rival would be possible, because I want to fight for a world title again very soon, and let's hope that happens. I hope the fight I'm looking for will happen very soon," Ramirez mentioned.
It should be noted that Ramirez, 29-years-old, is currently a free agent after parting ways with Top Rank earlier this year. He has an unbeaten record of 40 wins and 26 knockouts.
