Jose Ramirez is tired of all the trashtalking going on between some of the top names in and around his weight class.

Ramirez, the former unified 140-pound champion from Avenal, California, recently took aim at a score of highly talented – and garrulous – fighters, most notably Gervonta Davis, Ryan Garcia, Devin Haney, and Teofimo Lopez.

Although Lopez is the only other 140-pounder per se, Garcia and Haney have hinted at moving up to 140 sooner rather than later. As for Davis, he fought at the 140-pound limit in the recent past (against Mario Barrios), although last weekend's fight against Hector Luis Garcia took place at 135. Of all those fights, the one with Lopez is probably the most realistic for Ramirez, as they share the same promoter in Top Rank and are currently divisional peers.

Ramirez pointed out how the aforementioned have never fought each other, despite the numerous headlines and attention that their bickering has produced in recent years.

“Now, listen, man, these fighters, Tank, Ryan, even Devin Haney — he’s doing a little bit more than the other guys — but the other guys, they love to talk and only name each other, and those fights are not happening,” Ramirez said on the Boxing with Chris Mannix Podcast. “I’m there to destroy their plans and take the fight against those people. I know I can beat Ryan Garcia, I know I can beat Devin Haney, I know I can beat Teofimo Lopez. And Tank.”

“I wanna step away from all this nice propaganda that’s working for them, this little marketing job that they’re doing, calling [each other] out for the last five [years], since they turned professional and they’re fighting guys who are very unknown,” Ramirez said. “But because they continue talking about each other the fans seem to kind of ‘Oh, let’s give them a break. Let’s give them a break.’ When they’re really ready to make the big fights happen, man, I’ll be there. I’ll be there. I’m excited for 140.”

Davis and Garcia, in fact, are probably headed toward a significant showdown in April. The two agreed to terms late last year.

Ironically, Ramirez has come under fire for virtually the same reason as those he has criticized. Ramirez recently turned down a title shot against WBC junior welterweight champion Regis Prograis because he did not think the purse split (60/40 in favor of Prograis) was fair. The Mexican-American is now headed toward a potential fight with former lightweight titlist Richard Commey in March in Ramirez’s backyard of Fresno, California. Many accused Ramirez of “ducking” Prograis.
