How Gilberto Ramirez can secure fight against Canelo Alvarez
Zurdo is coming off a sublime win against Sullivan Barrera. The 30-year-old aced his biggest test to date when he stopped Barrera in the fourth round via knockout on Friday night from the Banc of California Stadium. But this isn’t good enough for Ramirez to lure in Canelo in sharing the ring with him.
“That’s my division. I want to take over this division,” the 30-year-old said in a recent interview. And if [Canelo] wants to do it, let’s do it because always two great fighters in the ring are guaranteed an explosive fight, and people want to see the fight, and why not?”
To grasp a fight against the Mexican superstar, Zurdo needs to win add another coveted belt on the line at 175. He can do so by snatching it from WBA light heavyweight champion Dimitry Bivol given that his ex-promoters at Top Rank are not holding grudges against his exit anymore.
He called out the champ after completing his win over Barrera, however, the boxing fans still await a response from the two-time Olympian.
“[I] think my performance was great. [Dmitry] Bivol, you’re next. You have to ask him (Bivol), is he ready for me?” Zurdo said in his post-fight interview.
