Ramirez vs Espinoza: preview

Robeisy Ramirez is hoping to round off a perfect year as he goes head-to-head against undefeated Rafael Espinoza at the Charles F. Dodge City Center in Pembroke Pines, Florida on Saturday. The Cuban champion has put his WBO featherweight title on the line in the hope of setting up a huge unification bout within the division, but Espinoza mustn’t be taken lightly.

Southpaw Ramirez, whose record of 13-1 includes eight KOs, claimed the belt in April with the defeat of Isaac Dogboe by unanimous decision. His first defence of the title couldn’t have gone better, a TKO of Satoshi Shimizu, and a win over Espinoza should put him on the path towards bigger prizes.

Espinoza, however, is the most experienced of the two fighters, possesses an unblemished record, and at 6’ 1” towers over Ramirez, who stands at 5' 6". That’s a height advantage of seven inches. In addition, he has a reach advantage of six inches, and his 86% knockout power eclipses Ramirez’s 62%.

It’s fair to say that Espinoza appears to hold near-enough every possible advantage over his opponent. One thing missing from his arsenal, however, is experience fighting outside his homeland, and with this title showdown taking place in Florida, which has a sizeable Cuban population, the two-time Olympic Gold medallist Ramirez will absolutely have the crowd on his side.
