“Zurdito” Ramírez is the new WBA Interim Featherweight Champion

The twelve-round match between the two Mexicans Eduardo “Zurdito” Ramírez and Isaac “Canelito” Avelar at the Dignity Health Sports Park open stadium in Carson, California, ended quickly with an accurate technical knockout of Ramírez that made him the new Interim Featherweight Champion of the World Boxing Association.

With a favorable first round for the winner, a second round that made everyone doubt the outcome, and a provoking Avelar, a longer fight could have been expected. However, a careless advance that left Canelito exposed was intercepted by a Ramírez right cross that destabilized him to immediately receive the same blow that ended up defining the outcome at the hands of the referee.

Eduardo Ramírez, a native of Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico, made his third KO victory and now has a record of 25 victories with 12 KOs, 2 losses, and 3 draws.
