Cruiserweight Deon Elam (13-1, 7 KOs), a participant on The Contender 4 boxing reality series, will take on former world champion Victor Ramirez (19-2- 15 KOs) on June 6th with the IBF Latino cruiserweight title on the line. The bout is scheduled for 10 rounds with the location being the Villa La Ñata Sporting Club, in Benavídez, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Elam’s management believes he is capable of pulling off the upset. “It’s no secret Ramirez is the favorite and fighting at home. However, Elam has trained hard with trainer Buddy McGirt and is coming to win,” said Journeyman Management CEO Andy Zak.
