Unified WBC and WBO light welterweight champion – José Carlos Ramírez has said that he is all,but set to becoming the first boxer of Mexican descent to get his fist hold onto all four world title belts.

Ramírez will come face-to-face with Josh ‘The Tartan Tornado’ Taylor in a 12-round showdown for the undisputed junior welterweight world championship on Saturday, May 22 at The Theater inside Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

The 2012 U.S. Olympian from California [Ramírez] who has spent the better part of two months training in Riverside with Robert Garcia has this to say from his training base ahead of fight night:

“I’ve always been the underdog. That’s my mentality. I am fighting for my place in boxing history. No boxer of Mexican descent has ever held all four world title belts.

“I’m aware that most people are picking against me, but that only fuels me further.”

“In my mind, I’m supposed to win this fight. I don’t let the outside noise get to me. No matter what you do, or who you beat, there’s always going to be somebody else out there. At this moment, that person is Josh Taylor.”

“We both wanted the fight, and I respect him for taking on the challenge. Josh and I are out to make history, and I know I will be the better man on May 22.”

“The odds are what they are, but the best junior welterweight, the undisputed champion, will be crowned May 22.”
