Unified 140lb champ Jose Ramirez out til 2020

WBC/WBO super lightweight champion Jose Ramirez (25-0, 17 KOs) has announced via social media that he will be out of action for the rest of the year.

Jose Ramirez: “Had surgery 2 weeks after my July 27th fight. I can’t use until 6-8 weeks post-surgery. I could be back in the ring in December, however, due to no dates available that month we will be back in the ring early 2020. I just need my hand to heal and I’ll give anybody a run for their money.”

  • This is one fighter to watch next year.

    I am sure that the winner or Prograis – Taylor will go after him, and the fight should be very interesting.

  • He’s making life for his gym mate Mickey Garcia very tough. Micky should be at 140lbs but his buddy Jose going for undisputed. And 147lbs too big. Now he’s in limbo

    • Mikey can’t hang with the top guys at 140, and he knows that ass whooping from Lomachenko is waiting at 135. I doubt fat Mikey can make 135 anyway. He will probably fight Pacquiao next and be retired in the ring.
