Light heavyweight contender Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez moved one step closer to earning a shot at a light heavyweight title. As many fans expected, Ramirez stopped former IBO Light Heavyweight Championship Dominic Boesel in the fourth round of their showdown on DAZN. Following his definitive victory, Ramirez called out light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol.
“Everyone knows I want Bivol,” he told DAZN’s Chris Mannix.
“Stop running. Make sure you sign the contract next time. I’m coming for you.”
Dmitry Bivol recently earned the biggest victory of his career. In Las Vegas, Bivol earned a unanimous decision victory against undisputed super middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Moving forward, he may look to fight the winner of Artur Beterbiev-Joe Smith Jr. bout or secure a rematch with Alvarez. Whenever the fight comes around, Ramirez is confident he can do what Alvarez was unable to do last week.
“Because I’m stronger, smarter, bigger than him, and handsome,” Ramirez said when asked why he would beat Bivol.
Until the fight is made, Ramirez will celebrate his knockout victory and get back in the gym.
THAT WILL DO IT
