Legendary Boxing Hall of Famer and senior advisor for Oscar De La Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions Don Chargin has signed the Rio Grande Valley’s unbeaten super lightweight Humberto “Tito” Trinidad Ramos (10-0, 7 KOs) to a promotional contract under the Don Chargin Productions banner. Ramos has kept himself unbeaten despite not having fought as an amateur. “I saw the film of him working out and I couldn’t figure out how this kid has gotten this far without any amateur experience and the more I looked at him the better he looked to me,” said Don Chargin about Ramos.
Don Chargin’s comments:
Tell us about this young man you signed to a promotional contract despite the fact he has no amateur fights but a pretty descent unbeaten record already.
That’s what really impresses me, I saw the film of him working out and I couldn’t figure out how this kid has gotten this far without any amateur experience and the more I looked at him the better he looked to me. So he really, really shows promise. I wasn’t looking to sign any young prospects but him. I just couldn’t turn it down. With the right fights, and we have explained to the fighter we’re not in a hurry, and for him to be calm, and you know, let the fights come the way there supposed to and not to rush into anything, and I think he can go far.
Sometimes the matchmaking has a lot to do with how a young prospect progresses. I am sure you will have a lot to say about who he fights. As we talked earlier about formerly unbeaten Charles Huerta’s upset loss by TKO at the hands of Derrick Wilson.
Oh, yes that is the main thing to have proper fights. You just never know, behind every corner is a good, good opponent waiting for you, and you just got to double check and find out. In regards to the other night’s fights: the kid that lost was (11-0) and the kid that won was (4-0-1) so it really looked like a safe fight on paper. So those things you just can’t help them.
Very true. You have guided many world champions in the past and is that your main goal with this young kid?
Well, Jose we hope. I know we will do our part and he has got to do his part, so we will go from there but the sky is the limit with him.
Any closing thoughts on what’s upcoming through your promotional company?
We’re going to get busy again starting at the end of September and right up to the first of the year we have secured a bunch of dates at the Arco Arena (Sacramento, California) and also Feather Falls Casino in northern California so we will be extremely busy and we will be bringing Tito out to just about every show.
Humberto Trinidad Ramos’ comments:
What are your thoughts about signing with Boxing Hall of Famer Don Chargin?
I am very, very excited about working with someone who has promoted over 30 world champions! I am looking forward to fighting somewhere else outside of the Rio Grande Valley. I hope to be ranked somewhere in the top 10 after a couple of years. I will let my manager and promoter do their job and I will do my best to do mine.
