Julian Ramirez Faces Rodriguez at UIC Pavilion, FS1

CHICAGO - As "The Windy City" prepares for Golden Boy Live! to make its Chicago debut at the UIC Pavilion on Monday, April 14, an exciting co-main event has been added featuring featherweight phenom Julian "El Camaron" Ramirez against Mexico's Carlos Rodriguez in an eight round fight on FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes in an eight-round featherweight showdown.  The card is headlined by a 10 round junior lightweight clash between Ronny Rios and Andrew "Chango" Cancio.

"Everyone in boxing sees Julian Ramirez as having tremendous talent and potential, but for him to make it to the next level, he has to win this fight against a tough veteran in Carlos Rodriguez," said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions.

Fighting out of East Los Angeles, Julian Ramirez' (10-0, 6 KOs) skills in the ring have made him a fan favorite.  A speedy southpaw with fight-ending power, the 20-year-old "El Camaron" is coming off of an impressive eight-round win over noted spoiler Derrick Wilson in January that proved Ramirez is ready for a veteran like Rodriguez.

Los Mochis, Sinaloa's Carlos Rodriguez (22-13-3, 10 KOs) is a rugged competitor who brings the heat every time he steps into the ring.  A professional for over 12 years, he earned two regional titles at flyweight before moving up in weight.  Winner of six of his last nine matches, Rodriguez looks to put a dent in Ramirez' future plans should he win their bout on April 14.

Rios vs. Cancio, a 10-round junior lightweight bout is presented by Golden Boy Promotions and 8 Count Productions and is sponsored by Corona and O'Reilly Auto Parts.  The UIC Pavilion doors open at 6:00 p.m. CT and the FOX Sports 1 and FOX Deportes broadcast airs live at 9:00 p.m. ET/8:00 p.m. CT/6:00 p.m. PT.
