Robeisy Ramirez will put his WBO featherweight title on the line tonight, December 9. He steps into the ring against the Mexican Rafael Espinoza, who heads into the bout with an unbeaten 21-0 record.
Ramirez won the title via unanimous decision against Isaac Dogboe back in April. He then defended the belt just a few short months later on the undercard of Inoue-Fulton against Satoshi Shimizu of Japan.
To date, in fact, the only defeat Ramirez has suffered came on his professional boxing debut. That was via a split decision at the hands of Adan Gonzalez.
His record before and since, though, has been flawless, winning six golds at amateur level, culminating in two golds at both fly and bantamweight at the 2012 and 2016 Olympics. Professionally, he heads into this weekend on a 13-fight win streak.
Espinoza, however, carries a significant height and reach advantage over Ramirez. He stands at 6’1 in contrast to the diminutive 5’5 stature of his Cuban counterpart.
