Super-Middleweight World Champion Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez will make the fourth defence of his WBO belt against the hard-hitting Roamer Alexis Angulo. So come and join us for a FREE viewing party in New Orleans at the The American Sports Saloon, 1200 Decatur St.
Ramirez (37-0, 25 KOs), from Mazatlán, Mexico, became the first Mexican-born Super-Middleweight Champion when he shut out three-time World Champion Arthur Abraham in 2016.
He has since gone on to beat Ukrainian Max Bursak, before a nip-and-tuck battle against No. 1 contender Jesse ‘Hollywood’ Hart, ultimately prevailing by unanimous decision.
In his last bout in February of this year Ramirez scored the first stoppage of his championship reign with a sixth-round TKO over Habib Ahmed.
His next challenge now comes against Angulo (23-0, 20 KOs), who has won his last five bouts by knockout, most recently winning the WBO Latino belt with a first-round knockout over Evert Bravo.
Oklahoma City’s Alex ‘El Cholo’ Saucedo will also be on the bill as he looks to continue his march to a 140-pound title shot against Lenny Zappavigna in a 10-round special attraction.
Saucedo, ranked No. 3 by the WBO at 140 pounds, last fought in March against Abner Lopez, knocking him out in the seventh round with a left hook to the body.
Against Zappavigna, Saucedo will be fighting in his home city of Oklahoma City for the first time since 2014.
