For Jose Ramirez Jr. (20-0, 15 KOs), this moment has not been as easy as it seems.

To be a World Champion is the dream Jose Ramirez Jr. is finally so close to after years of training, discipline, sacrifice and dedication to Boxing. Photos by Mikey Williams.

Jose Ramirez Jr. was born in the small city of Avenal, Ca on August 12, 1992 to nurturing parents, immigrants of Michoacan, Mexico. Ramirez, a first generation Mexican born here in the U.S. grew up in seeing his parents and family work in the fields of Central California. Not one day passed where he wasn't grateful of how hard his parents worked for their family. He started Boxing at the age of 8 years old and fell in love with the sport when he won his first trophy as an amateur. He enjoyed the cheers and people calling him "Champ" so much, he wanted more. As an amateur, he won many important tournaments, never losing a USA tournament since the age of 13 which led to represent TEAM USA in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Coming back from London to his small town in Avenal, Jose realized how much the town and people commended his career as an Amateur. This inspired him not only to continue Boxing professionally, but also to be a voice for farmworkers, for immigrants, for the community who needs help and stays quiet, he vowed to be that voice. After offers from many promotion companies, Ramirez, with the help of his advisor, Rick Mirigian, signed a promotional contract with Top Rank. One of the best we've seen in Boxing as he can co-promote under his own promotional company JCR Promotions.
