Robeisy Ramirez's career should enter an accelerated lane.
After the two-time Olympic champion defeated undefeated Abraham Nova with a resounding knockout, Top Rank really took note of his talent.
After a stumble at the beginning of his professional journey when he lost a decision in his pro debut, Ramirez (10-1, 6 KO) has looked unstoppable and is aiming for something important in his next presentation in the featherweight division.
There are plenty of big names at the weight, like Emanuel Navarrete, Josh Warrington, Leo Santa Cruz, Mark Magsayo, and Leigh Wood.
The clearest path for Ramirez to have a shot at a title would be a fight with WBO champion Navarrete - who is also promoted by Top Rank.
However, there is talk that Navarrete could move up in weight and there is no guarantee that he would have interest in a fight with Ramirez - when more lucrative options exist at featherweight.
“I don't talk much with Top Rank. I let my team take care of that, but after the fight [with Nova] you can see and feel that they now think differently [about me]. They realized that they should give me a little more attention. They are more interested in promoting my career," Ramirez told George Ebro.
"I have said it in many interviews: the more quality my opponent has, the better I am going to fight. I want to fight the best and that is what we are looking for. There are good names in the division, but I'm ready to take on anyone. Let [Top Rank] give me the test they want.
"I will fight anyone. With everyone who's there [at 126-pounds] I would fight without any problem. As I did for this fight [with Nova], a good camp is all I need..... with Salas in the corner and a good strategy. We are willing to fight with whoever they put in front of us, with the best in the division. Seeing how [Top Rank] work, I think the logical thing is that they put us in an [eliminator for a] mandatory fight. I don't know if Navarrete will stay at 126-pounds or move up. If he leaves the title vacant it would be great [so I could fight for it]."
