Claudio Marrero took a big step towards an opportunity to fight for the world title with his victory over Eduardo Ramirez this Saturday night at the NRG Arena in Houston, Texas.
The Dominican won the World Boxing Association (WBA) Gold Title in the featherweight class with scores of 116-112, 116-113, and 118-110, and therefore, has earned the right to fight for the world title of the WBA.
The beautiful boxing and the speed of Marrero were revealed during most of the fight and did not allow too many freedoms to “Zurdito” Ramirez, who was a victim of good combinations and missed a great opportunity before him.
Although the Mexican native was getting better little by little in the fight and dominated several of the assaults in the second half of the fight, it was not enough to convince the judges who ended up giving a unanimous decision to Marrero.
Marrero won his 24th fight and has 3 losses and 17 knockouts. Ramirez now has a record of 23 wins, 2 losses, 3 draws, and 9 knockouts.
