WBO Champion Robeisy Ramirez Set To Defend His Belt Against Satoshi Shimizu

Robeisy Ramirez, the current WBO featherweight champion with a record of 12 wins and one loss, is set to defend his title against Satoshi Shimizu on June 25th, 2023, in Tokyo, Japan.

The bout has plenty on the line, given the pedigree of the two fighters. Ramirez, who has won two Olympic gold medals, claimed the vacant WBO title by beating Isaac Dogboe in a twelve-round unanimous decision.

In contrast, Shimizu is ranked sixth with a record of 11 wins and one loss, with ten knockouts. He secured a bronze medal in the 2012 Olympics and has emerged victorious in his past three fights.

Robeisy has aspirations to unify the featherweight division, which is why he cannot overlook Shimizu.

“Next stop, Japan! I am happy to announce my quick return to the ring in what will be the first defense of my WBO world championship.

“Fighting is what I do best, titles are meant to be defended, and there’s no stopping ‘El Tren,” Robeisy 

Victory for either fighter throws their name into the hat for bigger fights. And as they fight on the co-main event of the Naoya Inoue vs Stephen Fulton card, everything is up for grabs.
