Gilberto Ramirez Very Eager To Get in The Ring With Jesse Hart

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - On Saturday, the world super middleweight champion of the World Boxing Organization (WBO), Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez (35-0, 24 KOs) finished up the heavy stage of his preparation for the September 22 mandatory title defense against unbeaten Jesse "Hard Work" Hart (22-0, 18 KOs).

After an intense run at Mount Baldy, a mountain with an altitude of 1,200 meters above sea level, the Mexican fighter was animated, knowing that he is less than three weeks away from returning to the ring.

"Ramirez has worked very hard for this fight, he is very motivated and we can corroborate that every day. Yesterday showed us again that he is able to dominate the mountain and that is how he behaves in each training session," explained his coach Jesús Zápari.


The showdown against Hart, which will take place at the Convention Center in Tuczon, Arizona. It will be the second of the belt he obtained on April 9 of last year by dethroning the Armenian-German Arthur Abraham.

The fight will promoted by Top Rank and televised on ESPN.

An injury to his right hand held him out of the ring for a year. Ramirez was finally able to get back to action on the 22nd of April, when secured a one-sided twelve round unanimous decision over Ukrainian Max Bursak.

Given that the upcoming fight with Jesse Hart takes in a border town, a large number of Mexican fans will be given the opportunity to take the trip to see Gilberto Ramirez and his stablemates Oscar Valdéz and Alex Saucedo.

"I'm anxious to get into the ring, it's a few weeks away. We will have a decent opponent who is also undefeated and he's looking to take away what we sacrificed so much to gain," said Gilberto Ramirez, emphasizing that - "on September 22 we will provide a great satisfactory feeling to Mexico. We will leave the ring with our hand raised."

Keen to see more of this dude, I remember when he shut out Abraham it seems like it was 2 years ago now, so this is a solid test.

A very average fighter with limited skills in a division with not very good Fighters... he doesn't possess a lot he beat an old and finished Arthur Abraham the best hope he can have to establish himself as an all-time…
