WBO featherweight champion Robeisy Ramirez (12-1, 7 KOs), originally from Cuba, showed a public training on Tuesday in Yokohama, Japan. Ramirez, accompanied by Cuban trainer Ismael Salas, looked relaxed and well-prepared before many media people at Ohashi Gym. Ramirez, a southpaw like his challenger Shimizu, looked deft in lateral mobility and defensive skills as well.

The champ said, “I know Shimizu is a very tall challenger, but I believe I can handle him by giving a lesson.” Time will tell.

  • Robeisy Ramirez won everything as an amatuer:
    Gold medal for Pan am games, Olympics, etc. No reason to move him so slow. He should know how to fight.
    The article barely mentions his opponent so we know what that means

    • I think you have not read the notes about his opponent
      Right before this more fight news talked about his opponent

  • Has done pretty well for himself after starting pro career with a loss, gets better with every fight
