World-rated Jesus Ramos Jr 20-0 (16) believes he is more than ready to steal the spotlight when he takes on Erickson ‘Hammer’ Lubin 25-2 (18) in a tantalising junior middleweight clash on the undercard of the undisputed super middleweight bout between champion Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez 59-2-2 (39) and challenger Jermell Charlo 35-1-1 (19) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 30.

The 22-year-old southpaw from Casa Grande, Arizona knocked out previously undefeated Joey Spencer 16-1 (10) in March and is planning to punch his way into world title contention later this month.

“I was excited when I heard I was gonna fight Lubin,” Ramos said. “I respect what he’s done as a fighter. He built himself back up after the Jermell Charlo fight and showed he’s a warrior.

“This is what I’m here for. I’m here to prove I’m one of the best and to do that I have to beat the best. It was an exciting moment when I was able to sign on for this fight.

“People didn’t really know what level I was on before the Joey Spencer fight. I had to show that I was on a different level and that I deserve to be on a stage like this.

“Hopefully with a win people will say I’m at the top of the division. That’s not up to me though. I just have to keep winning and proving myself. The main thing is to keep growing as a fighter. I’m gonna take a lot from this fight and have a lot more experience. I’m gonna be a different boxer after this and I’ll be ready for that title shot when it comes.

“I have good power, but I’m not relying on it. I have skills too and I’m gonna show them on September 30. I’m an intelligent fighter and everyone is gonna see that with a worthy opponent like Lubin across from me.”

Southpaw Lubin, 27, from Kissimmee, Florida is fresh off a fifth-round knockout of Luis Arias 20-4-1 (9) in June that came 14 months after his ninth-round knockout loss to Sebastian Fundora 20-1-1 (13) in what was an even fight at the time of the stoppage.

“I’ve faced tough guys like Brian Mendoza and Vladimir Hernandez, but Lubin looks like he’d be the toughest so far,” Ramos continued. “He’s right up there because he’s got a lot of experience and we respect what he can do.

“I do feel like I’m the fresher fighter, but it’s not something I’m banking on. We’re working hard to be at my very best. He’s been in some wars, so we’ll see if he’s got wear and tear from it.

“Whatever I have to do to win, I’m ready for. I’m here to dominate. I want to make a statement and in order to do that, I have to dominate. That’s the plan.”
