Jose Ramirez Vs. Richard Commey Scheduled for March 25th

Former WBC and WBO Super lightweight champion Jose Ramirez will have another tune-up fight coming his way as he is set to face Richard Commey on March 25th in Save Mart Arena in Fresno, California.

Ramirez had to face severe criticism from the boxing fraternity after the Cali native turned down the fight against WBC 140-lb champion Regis Prograis. The fans wanted that fight to happen but only to their dismay, Ramirez backed out at the last minute.

Ramirez who represents Top Rank explained that he was more inclined towards the prospect of fighting Commey as the 65-35 bill split for the Prograis fight doesn’t suit him.

The ‘Jaguar’ wants to avenge his loss against Scott, Josh Taylor and for that to happen, he had to take a diversion to the WBO path where he is ranked no.3 and will not have to wait very long for him to get a crack at Taylor.

Meanwhile, the Mexican-originated, Ramirez expects Commey to be at his best and bring him the fight when the two come blow-to-blow inside the Save Mart Arena on March 25th.

“Richard Commey is a championship fighter with everything to gain,” said Ramirez. “I expect the best version of Commey on March 25. My goal is to become champion again, and I am more motivated than ever to prove that I am the best junior welterweight in the world.”

Ramirez will need a big performance against washed-up Commey to make his case further stronger. And to cool down the anger and the wrath he is facing from fans for not accepting the fight against Prograis.

Ramirez will be under immense pressure. All eyes will be on him how he manages the trickery of the Ghanian, Commey on March 25th.
