Julian Ramirez Faces Raul Hidalgo on April 2, FS1

By Francisco Salazar

After a breakthrough 2014, Julian Ramirez hopes to keep the momentum going in 2015.

Ramirez will fight Raul Hidalgo on April 2 at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, manager Joel De La Hoya told Boxingscene.com on Sunday night.

The 10 round bout will headline a 'L.A. Fight Club' card and will be broadcast live on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports Deportes.

Golden Boy Promotions will promote the card.

Ramirez was originally scheduled to fight on February 28 on a Golden Boy/ Cancun Boxing card in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. De La Hoya told Boxingscene.com Ramirez fell ill in mid-February and had to withdraw from the card.

Ramirez (13-0, 8 KOs) scored an impressive win over Derrick Wilson last January 24. He has since scored three dominant wins, his most recent win taking place on November 13 when he stopped Pedro Melo after the fourth round.

Ramirez, who will turn 22 on March 23, is one of Golden Boy's brightest prospects and has an aggressive style that has begun winning him fans over the last year.

In his last bout on December 20, Hidalgo (23-12, 17 KOs) knocked out Jorge Luis Babuca in the third round.

Prior to the Babuca bout, Hidalgo faced Joseph Diaz, Jr. on September 29. The 2012 Olympian overwhelmed Hidalgo as the bout progressed, eventually stopping him in the seventh round.

I wish not only GBP, but all of the promoters would match their prospects a little bit tougher as was the case with Diego De La Hoya vs. Manuel Roman. De La Hoya dominated, but he had to work very…

Ramirez is a good prospect, wish he was facing a better opponent though.
