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.
