Scrappy-Batista in WBA 115lb eliminator

Ten months after accepting a WBA offer to fight in a title eliminator, WBA #2 super flyweight John “Scrappy” Ramirez (12-0, 9 KOs) will finally get his opportunity October 7 in Las Vegas against WBA #7 Ronal Batista (15-3, 9 KOs). The winner will become the mandatory challenger for WBA super flyweight World Champion Kazuto Ioka (30-2-1, 15 KOs). Ramirez was initially matched against then #3 rated Sirichai Thaiyen (64-4, 42 KOs), who has since dropped to #8 in the WBA rankings.

Ramirez-Batista will be the co-featured event on a Golden Boy-promoted card to be headlined by former world super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (44-1, 30 KOs), who takes on former world light heavyweight titleholder Joe “The Common Man” Smith, Jr. (28-4, 22 KOs). All the action will be streamed live on DAZN from The Chelsea inside The Cosmopolitan.
