Jose Ramirez & Seniesa Estrada Visit Local Boys & Girls Club In Fresno

It’s fight week for Top Rank boxing, and with that, the headliners usually try to make some promotional stops during fight week to draw more interest to the event. Jose Ramirez and Seniesa Estrada stopped by a local Boys & Girls Club in Fresno, CA, where they put smiles on many kids’ faces. Here is the press release sent out by Top Rank.


FRESNO, Calif. (March 22, 2023) – Former junior welterweight world champion Jose Ramirez and WBA minimumweight world champion Seniesa Estrada paid a special visit to the Boys & Girls Club of Fresno County ahead of their ring returns this Saturday, March 25, at Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.  A group of local children were on hand for this special meet-and-greet, as Ramirez and Estrada shared motivational insights and signed hats and t-shirts.

Ramirez (27-1, 17 KOs) headlines the ESPN-televised tripleheader in a 12-round junior welterweight showdown against former lightweight world champion Richard “RC” Commey (30-4-1, 27 KOs). In the co-feature, Estrada takes on WBC minimumweight world champion Tina Rupprecht (12-0-1, 3 KOs) in a unification battle.

Ramirez-Commey, Estrada-Rupprecht and the Antonio Mireles-Patrick Mailata heavyweight opener will be broadcast live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN+ at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.  At Wednesday’s event, this is what Ramirez and Estrada had to say:

Jose Ramirez 


We want to encourage our youth to stay positive and stay motivated. Seniesa and I came from small communities. We came from rough areas, and we made it through. We’re an example that shows them that they can make it happen, too. We’re here to motivate and encourage these kids. We have to make sure that they stay on the right path. There are a lot of distractions out there, and we have to be positive role models.”
“I think it’s everyone’s responsibility. Every leader, from the teachers to our police officers—everybody. It’s our responsibility to work together to make sure we keep our youth on the right track because they are the future of our community.

Seniesa Estrada


It’s really important to participate in events like these because it really inspires the kids. A lot of kids don’t have people in their lives to encourage them. So, for them, to see someone like Jose and me come here and take our time to talk or take a picture means a lot to them. Going to the fight as well can inspire them. They can see that there are greater things to accomplish and bigger things out there. I can definitely relate to the kids here because I grew up going to youth centers in Boyle Heights.
