Ramirez vs Taylor fight preview (The Main Event)

Both athletes enter the ring at the Virgin Hotels in Las Vegas, Nevada with undefeated records, and two belts apiece.

Ramirez (26-0) is the current WBC World Super Light and WBO Super Light champion. In 2018 he claimed the former by unanimous decision in a match for the then-vacant title against a fellow undefeated, Amir Ahmed Imam. After two successful title defenses, he challenged Maurice Hooker in 2019 for the WBO belt, winning by TKO in the sixth round. Ramirez successfully defended both belts against Viktor Postol last August.

Taylor (17-0) currently holds the WBA Super World Super Light and IBAF World Super Light belts. The first he earned in July of 2017 and has defended it ever since. His possession of the IBAF class title was the result of his mixed-decision victory over Regis Prograis in October of 2019. Prograis (26-1) was undefeated entering that bout, and per BoxRec.com, is still the higher-rated fighter. To the victor goes the spoils, and after defending both titles last September, Taylor has the opportunity to be the undisputed champion on Saturday.

One Night, Two Title Fights, and More

Ramirez vs Taylor is the main event of the evening at the Virgin Hotels, but the night is bigger than that. The co-main event on Saturday is Jose Zepeda vs Hank Lundy in a title bout for the WBC Silver Light Welterweight Title.

It’s the first defense for the champion Zepeda (33-2) since claiming the title last October against Ivan Baranchyk at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Zepeda is on a three-fight win streak with an additional no contest over his last four fights. His last loss was to Ramirez in a challenge for the WBC World Super Light Title in early 2019.

Zepeda’s challenger, Lundy (31-8-1) gets his shot at the WBC Silver Light Welterweight Title. He had a pair of consecutive victories at the end of 2019 going into 2020. Lundy is 6-4 over his last ten matches.

In total there are eight fights on the boxing card Saturday night, with six bouts preceding the two headliners. Fans will be treated to contests in the middleweight lightweight, junior lightweight, and junior welterweight classes. There’s also a pair of featherweight matches on the undercard.
