Gilberto Ramirez Ready For Gevorg Khatchikian, TruTv

By Miguel Rivera

MAZATLAN, Sinaloa.- World ranked super middleweight Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez (32-0, 24 KOs) will look to commemorate the Mexican Revolution with a win when he returns on the 20th of November at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Ramirez will face Dutch boxer Gevorg Khatchikian (20-1, 10 KO's) in the main event of a card that will be transmitted through TruTV.

Ramirez is now the champion of the NABF and and international WBO beltholder at 168. Khatchikian's sole defeat came at the hands of current IBF world champion James DeGale last March.

"Gevorg Khatchikian is an opponent who will challenge Ramirez. He went eleven rounds against the world champion James DeGale and sometimes gave him trouble, so we have to treat this fighter with a lot of respect and not give any room for surprises," said his coach Hector Zapari.

"It is increasingly difficult to get opponents, but we have to move forward in the race for the world title and ensure that he faces a variety of styles. That will give him more weapons when he gets the opportunity that he's worked so hard for."

Ramirez wants to become the first Mexican fighter to win a world title at the 168-pound division, but must resolve this upcoming hurdle.

The clash between Ramirez and Khatchikian will be held a day before the HBO Pay-Per-View fight between Miguel Cotto and Saul Alvarez at the Mandalay Bay.

Pretty good opponent I guess. So I'm assuming he took step aside money since he was the mandatory of steiglitz-abraham fight

I think ultimately their plan is Hopkins fights Abraham and if Hopkins wins, hopefully he retires and vacates the belt
