The WBO World Super-Middleweight Title

On February 3rd, Gilberto Ramirez defends his WBO World Super-Middleweight Title against Habib Ahmed. Somebody’s ‘0’ has got to go in this battle of unbeaten punchers.

Ramirez (36-0, 24 KOs) has been carrying the Mexican flag in the Super-Middleweight division in recent years, delivering exciting displays of skill and power. This bout marks the second unbeaten fighter in a row he will encounter, after defeating Jesse Hart in September.

‘Zurdo’ won his World Title in April 2016 against veteran Arthur Abraham, pitching a shutout on all three cards and taking the Armenian slugger to “Mexican boxing school” as Ramirez
describes it.

That victory meant the 26-year- old made history to become the first Mexican to win a World Title in the Super-Middleweight division. The WBO Champion followed up that win with a dominant display against Max Bursak before taking on Hart. Ramirez dropped the unbeaten American and earned a close unanimous decision in a pulsating match.

In the opposite corner, Habib Ahmed will attempt to win his first World Title in a big step up for the Ghanaian. The challenger holds a perfect record of 25 wins, no losses and 17 KOs.

Ahmed is coming off a streak of three knockouts and will look to bring back Ramirez’s belt to Africa, while Ramirez will be eyeing unifications against the likes of James DeGale, George Groves and David Benavidez.

The IBF World Super-Flyweight Title

Also on the card, Filipino knockout artist Jerwin Ancajas defends his IBF Super-Flyweight championship against Israel Gonzalez.

‘Pretty Boy’ is coming off a stoppage win over the brave Jamie Conlan in November. Ancajas (28-1-1, 19 KOs) put down the tough Northern Irishman multiple times before eventually stopping him in the sixth round.

Ancajas has a reputation for excitement and is promoted by his countryman, none other than living legend Manny Pacquiao. He won the World Title in 2016 via upset unanimous decision against McJoe Arroyo, dropping the Puerto Rican in the eighth round.

His opponent, Mexico’s Israel Gonzalez, holds a respectable record of 21-1 (8 KOs), but faces a tough test against one of very best in the division and pound-for-pound.
