Light heavyweight contender Gilberto "Zurdo" Ramirez (42-0, 28 KOs) hosted a media workout today ahead of his WBA Light Heavyweight eliminator against the dangerous Yunieski "The Monster" Gonzalez (21-3, 17 KOs) on Saturday, December 18.
The 12-round event is set to take place at San Antonio's AT&T Center and will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN worldwide.
"I think my fight against Sullivan Barrera this past July, showed my strengths as a fighter. I was able to put on a great performance and show everyone that I am someone to take note of in the light heavyweight division. Barrera had a lot of experience, he had faced many great champions and I stopped him. No one had stopped him like I did, and I think that showed that I am ready for big challenges in the division," Ramirez said.
"San Antonio, has a big boxing fanbase and that is big for me and my career as a fighter. I have fought there before and people love my style of boxing, so they can expect a great performance from me on December 18.
"Gonzalez is a dangerous fighter. He accepted the fight to face me and that makes me think that he wants everything that I have and I am not going to let him take anything away from me. I have been training so hard to get to this level and I am not going to let anyone get in my way."
