Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (35-0, 24KO) won a dominant but sleep inducing unanimous decision victory over Max Bursak (33-5-1, 15KO) on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. It was the first fight in over a year for Ramirez who was out with a hand injury.

Despite having a significant size advantage at 6’2″ over Bursak, Ramirez didn’t seem to have enough on his punches to hurt the durable Bursak who seemed content to just hang around for the twelve round distance. By scores of 120-106 on all three judges scorecards, Ramirez easily retains his WBO super middleweight title but does little or nothing to raise his own stock. At various times throughout the bout, the crowd started doing “the wave”, typically taking place at baseball games to get a rally going but none of the waves were successful to get the action going in this fight.

Team Ramirez: Zurdo Has What it Takes To KO Jack or DeGale!

gilberto-ramirez (1)_4

By Ryan Burton

WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramírez (34-0) and his team were very interested observers of the war waged Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.

WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack and IBF champion James DeGale battled to a twelve round majority draw in an exciting fight that saw both fighters retain their titles.

Based on what Ramirez’s co-trainer Héctor Zapari saw in he fight, he believes that his charge has what it takes to defeat either of them.

“Zurdo has all of the tools necessary to clearly defeat either of them or knock them out,” said Zapari.

“We are very confident that our promoter Bob Arum can make the biggest fights possible. Zurdo will come back to the ring better than every after his surgery. He is very motivated to get back in the ring.”

Ramírez last fought in April 2016 as part of the Pacquiao-Bradley III undercard, when he captured his title with a dominant unanimous decision victory over Arthur Abraham. He was slated to return to the ring in July but aggravated an injury to a knuckle in his right hand during training camp which required surgery and has kept him sidelined.

He is now back training at full speed and is looking to return to the ring in March or April.

“The greatest champions fight other champions and unify titles. Zurdo is ready for all of the other three champions at 168 pounds.” Zapari told BoxingScene.com.

Arum: Golovkin vs. Ramirez, We Have Deal in Principle For 2017

Gilberto_Ramirez (12)_1

By Ryan Burton, Steve Kim

Two days ago, BoxingScene.com’s Steve Kim broke the news that a potential Canelo Alvarez-Gennady Golovkin mega-fight will not take place until September 2017. A lot can obviously happen in that amount of time so a date that far out is far from set in stone.

The hard hitting Triple G (35-0, 32KOs) has long clamored for big fights but has had difficulty securing a top level opponent.

One such fighter who has expressed interest in facing Golovkin is newly crowned WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (34-0, 24KOs).

The 24-year-old fighter from Mazatlán, Sinaloa made history by becoming the first Mexican to win a title in the 168 pound division in April when he routed former two-division champion Arthur Abraham on the Manny Pacquiao-Tim Bradley 3 undercard.

Top Rank CEO Bob Arum revealed that he has had discussions with Golovkin’s promoter, Tom Loeffler of K2 Promotions, and they have a tentative agreement in place to fight in the fall if both fighters keep winning and GGG fails to secure a fight against Canelo.

“Well the plan with Ramirez is he defends his title against the German (Dominik Birsch) on July 23rd on the Crawford-Postol card and then we will have him fight in the fall in another title defense and if all goes well – I’ve been talking to Tom Loeffler about Golovkin challenging Ramirez for the super middleweight title – and we have a deal in principle,” Arum told BoxingScene.com.

“Obviously Golovkin would rather fight Canelo but he’s coming to the realization that Canelo, despite the act that he put on after his last fight inviting Golovkin into the ring, has absolutely no intention to fight Golovkin and the true Mexican warrior – the guy who would not hesitate to go in the ring with Golovkin – with a good chance to beat Golovkin, is Zurdo Ramirez.”

And says the agreement is no joke.

“I’m not like these other guys, I don’t mess around. I’m too old, I don’t have enough time left,” said the 84-year old promoter, who recently celebrated his 50th year in the business.

Zurdo Ramírez compartió con niños su experiencia en el boxeo

gilberto-ramirez-ninos1-josh-osuna-625x302

MAZATLÁN, Sinaloa.- El campeón mundial súper medio de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) el mazatleco Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramírez visitó el día de ayer el Instituto Las Lomas de esta ciudad, donde asisten alumnos de educación preescolar y primaria, para compartir con ellos su experiencia en el boxeo y las dificultades que tuvo que superar para cumplir su sueño de convertirse en monarca universal.

Alrededor de dos horas estuvo el púgil porteño en el Instituto, charlando con los niños y dándoles consejos que les serán útiles en el momento en el que se planteen alcanzar alguna meta en la vida.

“Luché por conseguir este título y ustedes también están luchando por tener su propio título, pero a mí cualquiera me lo puede quitar. En cambio cuando ustedes consigan el suyo, nadie se los podrá quitar. Así que deben de trabajar duro para eso y no permitir que nadie trunque sus sueños y aspiraciones en la vida, ya sea que quieran ser doctores, abogados, maestros o cualquier otra profesión que elijan,” expuso Ramírez durante la plática con los alumnos del Instituto Lomas.

Alrededor de 100 niños estuvieron presentes en la reunión con El “Zurdo” mazatleco, quien recibió un reconocimiento por parte de la Directora del plantel educativo.

Gilberto Ramírez se prepara desde la semana pasada para estrenar el fajín que se agenció el 9 de abril en la MGM Grand Garden Arena Las Vegas, EE.UU., derrotando al alemán Arthur Abraham y lo hará el próximo 23 de julio en el mismo escenario ante otro alemán, el contendor súper medio Dominik Britsch.

“Estamos empezando tranquilos, desde el lunes iniciamos los trabajos con la gobernadora y a pegarle al costal y a la pera. La semana pasada sólo nos estuvimos moviendo en el gimnasio, pero ya ahorita que tenemos rival y fecha confirmados es momento de enfocarnos en la formación,” reveló.

Por las mañanas también está ocupado con carreras en montaña, pista y arena, además del nado en la playa, que es tradición en los boxeadores de Zápari Boxing Promotions.

Gilberto Ramirez To Golovkin: Right Here is a True Mexican!

gennady-golovkin (4)_6

By Miguel Rivera –

World Boxing Organization super middleweight world champion Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez (34-0, 24KOs) will defend his belt for the first time on the 23rd of July at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, as part of the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard to Terence Crawford vs. Viktor Postol.

Ramirez captured the world title at the same venue on April 9th with a twelve round decision over longtime champion Arthur Abraham on the Pacquaio-Bradley undercard.

According to Ramirez’s co-promoter, Jesus Zapari – he really wants to get in the ring with WBA/IBO/IBF middleweight champion Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin (35-0, 32KOs).

Ramirez’s other promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, is fully on board to make that fight.

“We just need to see the opponent, but the date is July 23 in the co-feature of Crawford and Postol on HBO Pay-Per-View,” said Zapari to ESPN Deportes. “I think there’s enough time for a good preparation. I think 12 to 13 weeks is a good timeframe, and we’re expecting nothing other than Bob Arum telling us the opponent.”

Golovkin is the mandatory challenger to the WBC middleweight title held by Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez. If Canelo defeats Amir Khan on May 7th, and the refuses to fight Golovkin, then Ramirez is ready to step in there for a fight.

Golovkin says Ramirez needs to raise his profile with a few more fights. The upcoming July date will be Ramirez’s second fight on HBO PPV.

“If he wants it. We’re ready to go ahead. We are ready to fight him and right here is a true Mexican,” Ramirez said.

Zapari says Ramirez will raise himself to a new level by facing someone like Golovkin.

“We like that fight, it is what we want. I definitely do not see it as an easy fight for Golovkin. I think which it is one of those fights that would launch Ramirez to great heights,” Zapari said.

“Zurdo” Ramírez se reunió con el Gobernador de Sinaloa

ZurdoMalova02  ZurdoMalova03

CULIACÁN, Sinaloa.- La tarde de este martes en el Palacio de Gobierno de esta entidad, el campeón mundial súper medio de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB) el mazatleco Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramírez se reunió con Mario López Valdez, Gobernador del Estado de Sinaloa, con quien compartió su experiencia en el pugilismo profesional, deporte al que le ha dedicado casi siete años de su vida.

Gilberto Ramírez (34-0, 24 Nocauts), quien obtuvo el cetro universal el pasado 9 de abril en Las Vegas, EE.UU., venciendo al alemán Arthur Abraham, fue elogiado por López Valdez, un reconocido apasionado de los deportes, sobre todo del boxeo, al que sigue con bastante intensidad.

El púgil de guardia cambiada se comprometió con el Gobernador a poner en alto el nombre del Estado de Sinaloa en cada justa internacional en la que se vea involucrado y a ser un ejemplo para los miles de jóvenes sinaloenses que practican esta disciplina.

A la reunión también asistieron su mánager Jesús Zápari, su progenitor Modesto Ramírez, el director del Instituto Sinaloense del Deporte (ISDE) Vicente Urías y el campeón mundial súper mosca Carlos “Príncipe” Cuadras.

“Me siento agradecido con el Gobernador Mario López Valdez y con el Director del Deporte el Ingeniero Vicente Urías, por el respaldo y por las atenciones que tuvieron con nosotros. Estoy comprometido con la afición, con mi Sinaloa y puedo decirles que esto es sólo el comienzo, queremos lograr más cosas en el boxeo y creemos que vamos por el camino correcto,” reveló Ramírez al final de la reunión.

El “Zurdo” llevó consigo el cinturón tinto y dorado que lo acredita como campeón del mundo, el primero para México en la división de las 168 libras (peso súper medio). Una promesa cumplida al pueblo mexicano, pues previamente manifestó que después del 9 de abril el cinto no regresaría a Alemania.

El miércoles, el nuevo soberano de la OMB y su mánager Jesús Zápari viajarán a Las Vegas para sostener una junta de trabajo con Bob Arum de Top Rank, en la que revisarán los planes que el promotor tiene para su carrera.

Undefeated super middleweight contender Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (31-0, 24 KOs) of Mazatlan, Sinaloa, Mexico is days away from his next fight as he will take on Las Vegas’s Derek “The Black Lion” Edwards (27-4-1, 14 KOs) this Friday, June 26, at the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas, in the TruTV main event.

We caught up with Ramirez during training camp as he talked about his plans and upcoming fight with Edwards.

“Right now we are having an excellent camp in preparation for Derrick Edwards,” Ramirez told Fightnews.com. The 23-year-old is currently training in the coastal city of Oxnard, California with his longtime trainers Hector and Jesus Zaparri in preparation for Edwards.

“We are training in various gyms finding the best sparring. Working in Oxnard has been great. There has been quality sparring there,” Ramirez said.

He is coming off a hard fought ten round unanimous decision win against Maxim Vlasov this past January in Colorado making his HBO World Championship Boxing debut. “My last fight with Max Vlasov was a tough one and I had a great experience,” Ramirez said.

Edwards suffered a unanimous decision loss in his last fight against Andre Dirrell. Prior to that Edwards handed current WBC super middleweight champion Badou Jack his only loss in scoring a first round TKO. Edwards has also been in with current WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson and former middleweight world title challenger Matt Korobov.

“He’s a tough strong fighter with lots of experience. A very difficult, tough fighter. We’re training hard to come out on top,” Ramirez said.

Rated number two by the WBC, Ramirez is closing in on a world title shot.

“First thing is to focus on Derrick Edwards. If all goes well, this is the year where we want to get a title shot,” Ramirez said. “In my division there is lots of talent like Badou Jack, Arthur Abraham, there’s a lot of strong fighters and champions.”

Ramirez vs. Edwards will be a scheduled ten round super middleweight bout headlining the Metro PCS Friday Night Knockout series on TruTV.

“Expect a war in the ring from my part. I expect Edwards to come well prepared to give the fans a great show,” Ramirez concluded.
