Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (44-1, 30 KOs) hosted a special Los Angeles media workout at Brickhouse Boxing Club today in anticipation of his showdown against Philadelphia’s former world title contender Gabriel “King” Rosado (26-16-1, 15 KOs).

Zurdo Ramirez had say 

“I am really looking forward to this fight and being part of the rich Mexico vs. Puerto Rico fight history. These fights are always full of action, and I know Gabriel and I will give fans a great fight. We are both aggressive fighters with a lot of heart and guts to do whatever it takes to win.” 

“I know Gabriel well; he is a great fighter and a great friend. We are friends inside and outside the ring and have been sparring partners. That is why this fight is dangerous; we both know each other very well. I know his weaknesses, and he knows mine. So I have to be on my toes, be better on fight night, and be ready to stop him. At the end of the day, this fight is all business; it’s not personal.”

The fight of year contender will also feature an action heavy co-main event as former world champion, Joseph “JoJo” Diaz, Jr. (32-3-1, 15 KOs), goes up against the battle tested former world title challenger Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta (33-3-3, 17 KOs) in a 12-round lightweight fight. The Mexico vs. Puerto Rico light heavyweight matchup is scheduled to take place on Saturday, March 18 at the Walter Pyramid in Long Beach, CA and will be broadcasted worldwide on DAZN beginning at 5:00 p.m. PST/ 8:00 p.m. EST.
