“Everyone knows what I have done in this division. My experience says a lot. I have some losses, but they were against very tough fighters. My experience will be a big factor. Zurdo Ramirez has a lot of skills. He does of things very well. But I have to do everything necessary to win this fight and earn another title shot. A win will help me get that opportunity.”
Ramirez (41-0, KO27) holds one of the longest undefeated streaks in the sport, but his career has stagnated somewhat recently due to promotional issues, that he has now ironed out having signed with Golden Boy Promotions earlier this year.
“It all started after my fight and my last performance. It was absolutely nothing that I wanted to happen in my career,” he told Ak & Barak.
“But it did happen and I wanted to get right back into it. I started thinking and plotting on how to get right back into the ring and how to get my name on a household name once again, and on that pedestal and on that top of the leads again. I need to be there again.
“And I really need to go out there and showcase everybody: That wasn't me that night and I'm an elite fighter, and I'm a star so I started praying to God, man, things just ended up happening my way, man. Ryan Garcia ended up pulling out with this Javier Fortuna fight due to his mental illness.
‘Zurdo’ built a 25-0 record in his native Mexico before his first appearance in the USA, and it would be a further six wins later before he received a world title shot.
The Gilberto Ramirez vs. Sullivan Barrera fight card takes place on Saturday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET. Ramirez and Barrera are expected to make their ring walks at approximately ?11:30 p.m. ET, although that depends on the length of the earlier bouts.
The journey to a light heavyweight title shot continues for Gilberto Ramirez as he makes his 2021 debut on Friday against Sullivan Barrera from the Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles, Calif. The card will be streamed live exclusively worldwide on DAZN.
Ramirez (41-0, 27 KOs), a former WBO super middleweight champion, is 2-0 with both wins via stoppage since making the venture up to 175 pounds in April 2019. Nevertheless, the 30-year-old is looking forward to taking on his stiffest test to date at light heavyweight.
In March, she faced Anabel “La Avispa” Ortiz to capture the WBA Minimumweight World Title. Now, she looks to capture a belt a 108 pounds to be one step closer to achieving her goal.
“I’m very excited to be fighting in Los Angeles again,” said Seniesa Estrada. “Fighting at home with my family, friends and fans there is the best feeling. LAFC is going to be a great venue for Golden Boy boxing. I can’t wait to win another world title in a second division.”
Tsunami, who will be defending her 108-pound title, is a two-division world champion who has a lot of experience fighting at a world championship level. Although making her United States debut, Tsunami feels she is not at a disadvantage because she has fought over a dozen times in foreign countries.
“I am excited to accept the challenge of young and fast-rising Estrada,” said Tenkai Tsunami. “I know Estrada is a good boxer. But I have superior experience and skills that I have gotten throughout my 16-year career and which I wish to use to be victorious. This is my first fight in the United States, but have fought in Mexico seven times, once in Chile and six times in Korea.”
As mentioned above, Hector Tanajara Jr. of San Antonio, Texas will face fellow Golden Boy contender William Zepeda of San Mateo Atenco, Mexico in a 10-round lightweight battle. “These are the kinds of fights that will take my career to the next level,” said Hector Tanajara Jr. “A win against a tough, undefeated southpaw contender will show everyone that I am ready for a world title opportunity. I believe in my skills and my talent, and on July 9, I will put them on full display at Banc of California Stadium.”
