In his U.S. debut, unbeaten middleweight contender Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (26-0, 20 KOs) of Mazatlan, Mexico scored a one-sided ten round unanimous decision over Derrick “Superman” Findley (20-10, 13 KOs) on Saturday night at the Civic Auditorium in Glendale, California. Ramirez won every minute of every round, but “Superman’s” granite jaw withstood every bomb Zurdo connected with, which is nothing new as Findley also went the route with KO Artist Curtis Stevens in April. Scores were 100-90 on all cards.

Jr welterweight Andrew Ruiz (7-0, 4 KOs) scored a six round unanimous decision over Joaquin Chavez (5-9-2, 2 KOs). Scores were 59-55, 59-55, 58-56.
