Gilberto Ramirez: I Won't Let Jesse Hart Run, I Want Him To Fight

MAZATLAN, Mexico - The super middleweight world champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez, will travel to Los Angeles, on Sunday, where he will continue the training camp for the second defense of his title against undefeated American Jesse 'Hard Work' Hart.

The Ramírez vs. Hart showdown will be held on September 22 in Tucson, Arizona. Which leaves a space of two months, enough time for Ramirez to reach the level required for a world championship fight.

"The strongest stage of preparation has already arrived, to travel out to Los Angeles to start [the full camp]. I am very focused on this fight and the truth is I am very motivated by the opponent. I hope give the fans a good spectacle and I hope that Hart comes out to fight, as we are Mexicans."

Both boxers will stake their undefeated records. The champion marches in with a record of 35 wins with 24 knockouts, while his challenger has 22 wins with 18 knockouts.

From the moment the contest was confirmed, Ramirez and his team went to work and made a game plan focused on what they know and what they have seen from Hart. They want to prevent Hart from using his style of evasive boxing - which they believe he uses to slow down the pace of his fights and avoid any toe to toe contact.

"We have studied him for two years. We have followed him during his trajectory and we have been looking at the progress that he's had. He is a fighter that stays away a lot from his opponent. He doesn't box in there - he runs. We already have the plan set down. We're working on it and the fight is going to be interesting because of the size of both of us... he's tall, so am I, so he won't be able to run," Ramirez said.

Floyd Mayweather is broke, desperate for cash and has lost 4 professional Boxing matches.

When you have nombres de guerre like "scorpion" "krusher" "son-of-god" "hi-tech" - there is something a little lacking with "hard work" smh - this guy almost deserves to lose because of that stupid name
