Charles Conwell (17-0) returned to the ring for the first time in over 9 months in Montreal, Canada. He stopped Abraham Juarez Ramirez in the third stanza of their bout that was scheduled for 10 rounds.

The card was promoted by Yvon Michel and also featured Mathieu Germain’s unanimous decision victory over Misael Cabrera Urias and Mazlum Akdeniz’s unanimous decision victory over Juan Antonio Rodriguez in their respective super lightweight bouts.  

Conwell was pleased with his performance but hopes to be more active in the future.

“I wanted to go out there and get the ring rust off. I had been out of the ring for about nine months, so it was good to be back in there,” Conwell told

The 2012 U.S. Olympian scores two knockdowns in    the second round and another in the third round before the fight was stopped. Conwell’s pressure and punching power proved to be too much for Ramirez who lives in Mexico City. 

Plansare already underway for Conwell’s next ring appearance. He doesn’t know who he will be fighting next but is hoping to get a top ten rated opponent in the near future.

“We got in and got out. I went out there, got warmed up, did my thing and got him up out of there,” said Conwell. “I want to face the world champions or former world champions. We’re contenders now and I am ready for bigger and better things.”
