Weights From Los Angeles: Ramirez 127.4, Martin 125.4

By Jake Donovan

All fighters took to the scales for the 2016 season premiere of Golden Boy Promotions’ “LA Fight Club” series, which takes place Friday evening at Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

Headlining the show, East LA’s own Julian Ramirez faces veteran trialhorse Chris Martin in a schedule 10-round clash. Ramirez (15-0, 8KOs) weighed in at 127.4 lbs., while Martin (28-6-3, 9KOs) – who hails from San Diego tipped the scales at a trim and ready 125.4 lbs.

The contracted limit was 126 lbs., with a regional title once at stake. Ramirez not only came in heavy but was unable to get down to the necessary limit. All parties agreed to proceed with what is now a non-title fight, although the unbeaten prospect will have to pay a portion of his purse to Martin and the California State Athletic Commission.

Another scheduled 10-round featherweight clash comes in the evening’s chief support as Abraham Lopez faces Puerto Rico’s Carlos Valcarcel.

Lopez (19-0-1, 14KOs) – proudly representing La Puente, Calif. – came in right at the 126 lb. featherweight limit. Valcarcel was slightly lighter at 125.4 lbs.

The show will air live on Estrella TV in the United States, with the full six-fight card to be streamed live on RingTVLive.com.
