Erick Ituarte (19-1-1, 3 KOs) cleared Thursday’s weigh in by checking in at 125.9 lbs., but challenger Jose Ramirez (27-6-2, 16 KOs) failed to make the featherweight limit by weighing 128.9 lbs.
As a result, Ituarte cannot lose his Junior NABF championship should he suffer a defeat at the hands of Ramirez. The “Path to Glory” main event is set for 8-rounds and takes place from the Doubletree Hotel in Ontario, Calif.
In the 6-round co-feature, elite prospect Ruben Villa (9-0, 4 KOs) made weight at 128 lbs., as did late replacement Juan Sandoval (7-20-1, 4 KOs) at 129.1 lbs.
General admission ($40) and ringside ($100) tickets will be available for purchase on the day of the event (Friday) beginning at 5:30 p.m. local time from the will call booth at the Doubletree Ontario.
