RAMIREZ WINS MISMATCH EASILY, NEEDS TO FIGHT BETTER OPPOSITION, SO WHO’S NEXT?

NO SHOCKS AS PREDICTED FOR THE CARD IN TEXAS.

Gilberto Ramirez done what we all expected and beat a fighter no one outside of Africa knows much about, never mind seen any recorded footage of one of his fights, questions are once again raised about how Ahmed ranked so highly as number four within the WBO rankings as he was clearly levels below Ramirez.

The referee in all honesty could have stopped the fight earlier than the 6th Round and as a fan at this event I would have felt a wee bit cheated as most of the fights were not competitive and everyone knew the outcome before the first bell sounded on the night.

Big questions will be asked if Ramirez next fight is against another fighter no one knows about but to give him credit he did state in his post fight interview that he does want the big fights, he wants to unify the division, he wants the winner of Groves and Eubank Jnr and is willing to travel to England for it but if any of this comes to fruition only time will tell.

 

Jerwin Ancajas is a name to remember as I believe he has the ability to be the next great champion to come out of the Philippines, he dispatched off Gonzalez easily enough as expected by stopping him in the tenth round after knocking him down a total of three times, once in the first round and twice in the tenth.

There are big fights out there for Ancajas, especially if he wants to unify the divison. WBO champion Naoya Inoue would be a great fight but there is talk of Inoue moving up in weight, WBA champion is Matchrooms Khalid Yafai and that would be a great spectacle to have in England, and the WBC champion is Srisaket Sor Runvisai from Thailand which would mean he might be able to have the fight in the Philippines.

He appears to keep getting compared to Manny Pacquiao but the only real comparison I can see is the fact they are from the same country  as they fight completely different styles, but I am sure his fan base is growing back home and if it gets to the same level as Pacquaio I am sure he will be happy.
