Undefeated Mexican knockout artist and No. 2 world-rated super middleweight contender Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez worked out for his upcoming all-action card which he will headline on Friday, June 26, at State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, TX. Right here, we have a collection of photos from the Ramirez workout.
Ramirez has been training up in Big Bear, where he’s been joined by none other than Sugar Shane Mosley. Ramirez is looking to break out onto the world stage and move into title challenge. He has the ranking already, but not necessarily the seasoning or the name recognition, so this is a step in that direction.
Ramirez will be taking on Derek “The Black Lion” Edwards in a 10- round super middleweight bout which will be televised live on The MetroPCS Friday Night Knockout on truTV at 10:00 p.m. ET. The eries is presented by truTV and Top Rank, and produced in association with HBO Sports.
Promoted by Top Rank, tickets to the Ramirez-Edwards boxing event are priced from $15-$35 and can be purchased at the State Farm Arena box office, or online at www.ticketmaster.com.
