Two-time Olympic gold medalist Robeisy Ramirez (4-1, 3 KOs) got his revenge against Adan Gonzales (5-3-2, 2 KOs) in a featherweight six-rounder on Thursday night inside “The Bubble” at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Ramirez outboxed Gonzales all the way to win a unanimous decision by scores of 60-54 3x. Last August Gonzales shocked the boxing world when he upset Ramirez in his pro debut.

“I wanted to put our first fight behind me, and I did that,” said Ramirez. “Ever since our first fight, I wanted the rematch. I am glad this chapter of my career is behind me now. A couple more rounds and I could’ve scored the knockout. But I’ll take the win and continue to work hard on my craft. I have the best trainer in Ismael Salas.”

Unbeaten lightweight “Prince” Albert Bell (17-0, 5 KOs) cruised to a ten round unanimous decision over Mark “Machete” Bernaldez (20-4, 14 KOs). Bell in command all the way. Scores 100-90 3x. Bell suffered a right hand injury in round nine.

Unbeaten junior welterweight Elvis Rodriguez (7-0-1, 7 KOs) knocked out Danny Murray (5-4, 0 KOs) with a jab in round one. Time was 2:13.

In a heavyweight clash, Kingsley Ibeh (5-1, 4 KOs) won a six round majority decision over previously unbeaten Patrick Mailata (4-1, 2 KOs). Scores were 57-57, 58-56, 58-56. It was Ibeh’s second win in seven days.

  • Ok folks. Let’s talk reality.

    1. Adan Gonzales did not have a fight since the first meeting, and Robeisy Ramirez had 3 with 3 knocks.

    2. Despite all the advantages for Ramirez, and all the unfair disadvantages for Gonzalez, Ramirez still failed to knock Gonzalez out.

    3. The promoters are playing Ramirez’s ass. They want to bring him in for Shakur Stevenson prey. Have Ramirez will all his matches, then put him in with Stevenson in late 2021. That is what this is all about. Ramirez is not the man. He is nothing more than a future knock out victim of Stevenson. Or if Stevenson is too big for the division, Michael Conlon. They will feed Ramirez to Conlon.

    Now a good fight that will most likely not happen, though should, is Ramirez vs Vladimir Nikitin. My guess is Ramirez would be the favorite, but who knows.

    • Ramirez looked much better in this rematch. He got rid of the blond hair and looked better for it. It was good for him to get this one out of the way. Gonzalez is a journeyman at best.

      Ramirez is actually sitting down on his punches more now. He also showed some good defensive moves by keeping his head out of the line of fire. This was the way he should have fought the first fight.

      I just don’t see him rising to the top. There is a lot of hype surrounding Conlan, but I’m not yet a believer. I don’t think he punches hard enough to match up with the best in the division. Ramirez may have a chance against Conlan, but none against Stevenson. He’ll need to be carefully matched if they want him to eventually fight Stevenson. There are a lot of potential pitfalls on the way to that match.

  • They only gave Gonzales short notice for this ‘big deal’ rematch and the best Ramirez could do ,is a not particularly impressive decision. Good luck building a following from this one. Bell is slick but man Tim Bradley is right , with fans in attendance he would’ve been booed out of the arena by paying customers who wouldn’t care for his style.
