Photos: Gvozdyk Earns WBC Shot, Michael Conlan Excites Crowd

Hulu Theater, Madison Square Garden, New York - The crowd really heated up following the main event, when former Irish Olympic bronze medalist Michael Conlan delighted a St. Patrick’s Day crowd decorated in green with a second-round TKO of Hungarian David Berna (15-3). Conlan (6-0, 5 KOs) also made his pro debut at Madison Square Garden last year on St. Patrick’s Day. (photos by Mikey Williams).

Oleksandr Gvozdyk of Ukraine beat Mehdi Amar of France by unanimous decision to become the WBC’s interim light heavyweight champion. Gvozdyk (15-0, 12 KOs) had knocked out his last eight opponents and 12 of his 14 overall by stoppage, but had to go the distance against Amar (34-6-2, 16 KOs), who was fighting for the first time in the U.S.

Jose Ramirez left the comforts of California to chase his title shot across the country.

When he goes back home, he’ll take a championship belt with him.

Ramirez won his first world title Saturday night with a unanimous decision victory over Amir Imam to win the WBC’s vacant 140-pound belt.

Ramirez pulled away in the late rounds, swelling Imam’s right eye in the process to take the title that became open when Terence Crawford moved up to welterweight.

Ramirez relentlessly pressured Imam and pounded away with hard left hooks, and Imam just couldn’t keep him off for all three minutes. Ramirez won the final three rounds on all three scorecards after Imam had gotten back into the bout with some good work in the middle rounds.

Ramirez, a 2012 U.S. Olympian, won by scores of 120-108, 117-111 and 115-113. He improved to 22-0 with 16 knockouts.
