Gilberto ‘Lefty’ Ramirez beats a resilient Jaime Barboza;
Victor Terrazas knocks out Jose Palma

Mexico’s middleweight hopeful  Gilberto ‘Lefty’ Ramirez kept his undefeated record and his  World Boxing Council (WBC)  Youth title by a unanimous decision (97-93, 100-90 and 100-91) over Costa Rican veteran Jaime ‘El Indio’ Barboza , tonight at the Municipal Auditorium in Arandas, Jalisco, Mexico.

Ramirez’s accuracy, fast pace and strength in the first part of the fight, led to a broad lead in the score cards as the Mazatlan fighter tried to knock out the opponent, Barbosa not only endured the early barrage of punches, but took advantage of Ramirez tiring towards the late rounds, where he was able to land a few punches of his own, not enough to change the tide of the fight and not with enough power to stop the 20 year old.

It was Ramirez fourth defense of his title.

“I might have tried too hard to knock out Barobosa since the beginning of the fight and that cost me a little at the end. But I think that a fight like this gives me the experience that will be helpful in future fights”, said Ramirez after the fight.

Victor Terrazas KO’s Jose Palma

A flashing right from Victor ‘Viking’ Terrazas left Colombian Jose Palma, on the canvas and flat in his back in a fight stopped at 57 seconds into the fourth round as part of the ROAD TO GLORY card.

Terrazas once again showed its power over a South American who gave a great account of himself until the lighting fast punch ended the toe-to-toe brawl.

With the victory, Terrazas kept his WBC Silver Championship title and will now await the winner of Abner Mares against Eric Morel who will fight for the world featherweight title next week.

Victor Terrazas is now 34 -2 -1  (9 KOs) while  Jose Palma fell to 15-6-2 with  10 knockouts.
