LOS ANGELES --  Undefeated Mexican knockout artist GILBERTO "Zurdo" RAMIREZ will headline an all-action card on  Friday, June 26,  at  State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, TX, taking on  DERECK "The Black Lion" EDWARDS   in a 12-round WBO International super middleweight championship bout which will be televised live on  The MetroPCS Friday Night Knockout on truTV®  at  10:00 p.m. ET .  The live boxing series is presented by truTV and Top Rank®, and produced in association with HBO Sports®.    Find truTV on  YOUR  TV:   http://trutvishere.com/  - Photos by Mikey Williams.

Promoted by Top Rank and Zapari Boxing Promotions, in association with Nord Boxing Promotions and Zanfer Promotions,  remaining tickets (a great Father's Day Gift!) to the Ramirez-Edwards boxing event, priced at $35, $25, $15, plus VIP tables of ten (10) at $800, $650 and $550, can be purchased at the State Farm Arena box office, online at www.ticketmaster.com or by phone at (956) 843-6688.

Ramirez (31-0, 24 KOs), a two-fisted super middleweight wrecking machine who hails from Mazatlan, Mexico, is world-rated No. 2 by the World Boxing Council (WBC) and the World Boxing Organization (WBO), and No. 3 by the International Boxing Federation (IBF) and the World Boxing Association (WBA).  A sensational young contender, Ramirez, 23, has won four of his last five bouts by knockout.  Last year featured career-best performances which included an NABF-NABO title victory over Giovanni Lorenzo via fifth-round stoppage, a WBO International title knockout victory over Junior Talipeau and a successful defense of his NABF and WBO International titles, stopping Fulgencio Zuniga in the eighth round.  He returns to the ring fresh from a 10-round unanimous decision victory over once-beaten Maxim Vlasov on January 24.

Ramirez will once again be putting his titles on the line, this time against division gatekeeper Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs), of Las Vegas, NV.  Last year Edwards scored a first-round knockout of previously undefeated Badou Jack, who recently won the WBC super middleweight world title.  He finished the year losing a 12-round decision to once-beaten one-time world title challenger Andre Dirrell.
