Ramirez-Gonzales 2 kicks off ‘The Bubble’ tonight

The rematch of Adan Gonzales and Robeisy Ramirez will kick-off tonight’s Top Rank Boxing inside “The Bubble” on ESPN as we head into the Independence Day weekend.

The featherweight bout is a rematch of a four-rounder these two had last August at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, where Gonzales (5-2-2, 2 KOs)  ruined the pro debut of Ramirez (3-1, 3 KOs) winning by split decision.

While the judges in the contest had it split, those watching it when it took place back on ESPN+ last year saw this as a loss for Ramirez against Gonzales, who started the fight early, scoring a knockdown in the first 20 seconds of the contest with a left hook.

As the tweet mentioned above at Wednesday’s weigh-in shows, Top Rank is going to play into this as “unfinished business” leading into the rematch. Ramirez leading into the first fight was a sought after two-time Olympic gold medalist from Cuba.

Since the loss last year, Ramirez has rallied three stoppages in a row. His most recent knockout win was held in “The Bubble” previous month against Yeuri Andujar, stopping him in the first round.

For Gonzales, this will be his 1st fight in 2020 as his last won was the contest against Ramirez. The Denver native is no stranger to ESPN fight cards as he was seen in matches back in 2018, taking on Jose “Chocolatito” Gonzalez back in 2018. Gonzales is just looking to repeat what he did back in August, which was defeat Ramirez.

Ramirez is the prospect signed to Top Rank in May of last year, and his coach, Ismael Salas, is thrilled at the chance at getting revenge.

“It will be a thermometer to measure how far we have come since the day I started working with Robeisy. I also want the world to see how far Robeisy has progressed, the effort and dedication we’ve both put in, and the potential for what can come, Salas told George Ebro.”

Ramirez has made strides against other opposition, and we’ll see if the revenge plays out Tonight in Las Vegas.
