Photos: Gilberto Ramirez, Jesse Hart - Ready For War in Texas

Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez is seeking a fifth successful title defense. Jesse "Hollywood" Hart is out for revenge. (photos by Stacey Verbeek).

Ramirez (38-0, 25 KOs) will defend his WBO super middleweight world against Hart (25-1, 21 KOs) Friday at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas, site of his February knockout of Habib Ahmed. Ramirez bested Hart via unanimous decision last September in one of the finest world championship fights of 2017.

Ramirez career needs to be re-evaluated. He really needs a big fight, i like his style but he hasn't been showcased to a wider audience enough.

I hope this rematch live the expectation of the first fight. I hope Jesse Hart pull off a upset here, but that is wishful thinking.:beerchug::boxing:
