Photos: Jose Ramirez Demolishes Reed, Sets Up Amir Imam Bout

Save Mart Arena, Fresno - In a showdown between undefeated junior welterweight contenders, Jose Ramirez (21-0, 16 KOs) blasted out Mike Reed (23-1, 12 KOs) in two rounds. A crowd of 14,000 came out to support Ramirez, who is one of the hottest ticket sellers in the West Coast. Photos by Mikey Williams/Top Rank.

Ramirez will now face Amir Imam for the vacant WBC junior welterweight title. The title became vacant after Terence Crawford announced that he was moving up to the welterweight limit of 147-pounds.

The World Boxing Council announced at their recent convention, that Ramirez and Imam would have to fight each other for the title. Imam was in action on the undercard and picked up a quick TKO win.

Ramirez was letting his hands go from the jump, with his punches targeting the body of Reed.  There was also good work by Reed in the early going, and he was showing his speed and landing decent counters.

In the second, Ramirez really let his hands go after stunning Reed and sent him down to the mat. Reed made it up, but he was being demolished against the ropes by Ramirez and not throwing anything back - which forced the referee to jump in and wave off the fight.

As part of the undercard, Imam (21-1, 18KOs) stopped Johnny Garcia (19-6-1) in four rounds.

Imam dominated the fight and dropped Garcia in the fourth round. The referee felt Garcia had taken too much damage during the four rounds and stopped the fight before the start of the fight.

This was Imam's third win and third stoppage in a row, since suffering an upset stoppage loss to Adrian Granados in November 2015. The unexpected loss was a huge setback, because at the time of that loss Imam was the WBC's mandatory challenger to then champion Viktor Postol.

[QUOTE=sammybee;18204260]the winner of Ramirez vs Imam should face Adrian Granados[/QUOTE] Sammybee, You took the words right outta my mouth. I heard the commentaries that Granados is ranked#15 way behind Iman (ranked#1) who he knocked out....

Ramirez looks like Perro Angulo.

Comment by Corelone on 11-12-2017

Imam is getting spoon fed since Granados cracked his jaw. Prograis looks like the better of the two. I'm not saying Imam is done, he just went back to the B level for a while.

[QUOTE=Luilun;18204271]I thought Reed said he was going to expose him as one dimensional fighter[/QUOTE] Yes Mike Reed did say that among other things only to get blasted lol I knew he was doing way too much talking before the fight,…

Hopefully that fight won't be for the vacant title. Imam vs Pograis or Ramirez vs Pograis should be the fight
