Last night I watched a couple undefeated fighters match up in a title fight down in Corpus Christi. Gilberto Ramirez controlled the action and dominated Ahmed. The fight was stopped in the 6th round by Ahmed's corner. He was a punching bag for the last 3 rounds. Honestly was thinking the ref should have stopped it much earlier. He couldn't defend himself. His head snapped back violently one time. Wouldn't be surprised if he has permanent neck and head damage. Does Ramirez have any competition in his class? Dude looks dominant and is one of the finest fighters I've ever seen. I don't think he spent a split second with his back near the ropes. Anyone else see the fight last night? What do you guys think of Ramirez?
I watched the fight as well. Ramirez is a good, young fighter. However, he fights around the 168/175 weight classes; there is a ton of competition there. His promoter will just have to match him
The good thing is with the exception of Badou Jack, there are no legit PBC fighters in those weight classes. So, matchmaking and negotiating shouldn't be an issue.
You, like me, are a true fan of the squared circle. I trust your takes. Wish TJsweens would continue to follow the sport, but he is now an old man and uninterested in keeping current.
55% of Republicans think the Earth is 5,000 years old. All kinds of people believe all kinds of crazy things. You just gotta move on, man.
