Zurdo-Gonzalez virtual press conference

Former world champion and current light heavyweight contender Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (42-0, 28 KOs) and Yunieski “The Monster” Gonzalez (21-3, 17 KOs) hosted a media call today to promote their WBA light heavyweight title eliminator that will take place on December 18 at San Antonio’s AT&T Center and will be streamed live exclusively on DAZN worldwide.

Gilberto Ramirez: “I feel stronger at 175, and it feels like my natural weight. You have seen me in three fights already and see how I have performed…Gonzalez was a plan for us after Bivol did not want to sign the fight contract. He is scared to fight me that he went to Russia to fight. Yunieski stepped up to take the fight; I have to respect him for that.”

Yunieski Gonzalez: “First they have to go through me before they can get to Bivol. People are talking about it, making an assumption about the direction of the fight, and I leave it and don’t say anything. And people forget that this is also an opportunity for me, this is my opportunity to also be in line for Bivol.”

  • Ramirez needs to stop talking about Bivol, and so do his delusional fans. There is no reason the Russian had to duck the Mexican, who has fought nobody in his whole career, and certainly nobody at 175. Ramirez has an easy fight upcoming against the super slow and shot Gonzalez, and then he will get his mandatory shot at the WBA title and be thoroughly and easily defeated by Bivol.
