Santa Ana southpaw Luis Ramos Jr. (23-0, 10 KO’s) has had a career-best year in 2012, when he stepped up his level of competition in a big way by delivering defeats to top talents in Raymundo Beltran (W10), Daniel Attah (W10) and Noe Bolanos (TKO8). Now ready to move into the title picture at 140 pounds, the 24-year-old Californian is looking to make a year-ending statement by defeating another hot talent in Williams Jr. on December 8.
31-year-old Ricardo Williams Jr. (20-3, 10 KO’s) emerged from the 2000 Olympics with a Silver Medal and proved that he has unyielding fighting spirit to never give up. With victories in 11 of his last 12 fights, the Cincinnati native is not only still standing, but a win over Ramos will push him into the top contender category once again.
