Ramirez: I Want DeMarco Rematch, Stoppage Was Way Too Early

StubHub Center, Carson, California - The opening bout of the Showtime telecast saw an action-packed opening round that ended in controversy as former world champion Antonio DeMarco (33-6-1, 24 KOs)score a first round stoppage of previously unbeaten Eddie Ramirez (17-1, 11 KOs) in their super lightweight affair.
 
The fighters disagreed on the decision to stop the fight by referee Gerard White to stop the fight.
 
"That stoppage was way too early," said Ramirez. "I was not hurt. I was fighting back and I felt like I was recovering. I want an immediate rematch if possible."
 
"I think it was a good decision from the referee," said DeMarco. "He was taking a lot of solid punches and I felt like I had him."

Ramirez came out aggressive early and pushed DeMarco against the ropes, looking to punish him with combinations. Midway through the round however, DeMarco connected with a straight left hook that stunned Ramirez and sprung DeMarco onto the attack.
 
As DeMarco stalked Ramirez around the ring, he caught him in the corner and forced Ramirez's knees to buckle. Ramirez was able to stay on his feet and appeared to be throwing back, but the referee jumped in and stopped the bout 1:56 into round one.
 
"I'm very thankful to Ramirez for taking the fight," said DeMarco. "I think big things are coming for me. I'm going to talk to my team and see what is next. I think this performance will erase a lot of doubts about me.
 
"I'm an experienced fighter and I stayed patient. I had great preparation and waited for the right moment. I feel great right now."
 
"I want an immediate rematch if possible," said Ramirez. "I'll talk to my team but that was a bad stoppage and I want a chance to redeem myself."

[QUOTE=FinitoxDinamita;18139602]what might have happened next is irrelevant. In that moment, it was wrong for the ref to wave off the fight. It was early stoppage. Fuk that ref for denying a young undefeated fighter a chance to fight through some…

America is the new England. Disgusting stoppage after disgusting stoppage. Let the man hit the canvas AT LEAST ONCE.

Early stoppage for sure. He was punching back and was moving his head to avoid shots fine. Yes, his legs weren't underneath him, but as McGregor said, "gimme a chance to compose meself, let me clear me 'ead n' see…

It was early but by the way things were looking DeMarco was on his way to a TKO regardless. This kid ate a lot of clean shots doubt he would have lasted that much longer anyway.
