Back on home turf in California for this clash, Ramirez will be looking to make amends for his first-ever career loss, the only blemish on a superb record which has seen him take down a string of big names including Amir Imam, Antonio Orozco, Jose Zepeda, Maurice Hooker and Viktor Postol.
Former two-division champion Pedraza is on a three fight win streak, taking his record to 29-3 with 14 KOs as he continues to repair his reputation after a 2019 loss to Zepeda.
With current champ Taylor suggesting he may vacate his four titles in order to move up to welterweight after a controversial win over Jack Catterall last weekend, the division looks wide open, which could allow tonight's winner the chance to capitalise.
