Photos/Weights: Ola Afolabi, Victor Ramirez Face To Face

By Nicolas Samuilov, notifight.com

The weights are in and the stage is set for Friday's collision between the Latin cruiserweight champion of the International Boxing Federation (IBF), Victor "El Tyson del Abasto" Ramirez, and former world champion Ola "Kryptonite" Afolabi. The two fighters will collide at the Villa La Ñata Sporting Club de Benavidez in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The fight will be televised live by TyC Sports in Argentina and throughout Latin America and the United States.

Ramirez (21-2-0-1, 17 KOs) was a former world champion who lost his title in 2009 to Marco Huck. He took a few years off and returned in 2013 to build a six fight win streak. Afolabi has faced Huck three times in the ring, going 0-2-1. Afolabi (21-3-4, 10 KOs) is hungry to get another title shot.

On Thursday afternoon, Ramirez weighed in at 90.450 kg (199.4-pounds) and Afolabi was 90.150 kg (198.7-pounds).

The IBF ordered the two boxers to clash for the "interim-title" and the winner is guaranteed a shot at the full champion, Cuba's Yoan Pablo Hernandez (29-1, 14 KOs), who has been injured and ill for several months.
