There is a new date for a long-awaited showdown between the reigning WBO cruiserweight champion Victor Emilio Ramirez (14-1, 12 KOs) of Argentina and the WBO #11 contender Ali Ismailov (15-1-1, 10 KOs) from Azerbaijan. “We have finally agreed on all the points and the upcoming battle for the full WBO championship will be held on May 16 at world-famous Luna Park arena in Buenos Aires,” commented Alexander Yagupov, the vice-president of Jab Promotions, which represents Ismailov. The fight was earlier scheduled for April 11 but this date had to be scratched after Ramirez had suffered an injury during his training camp. Ola Afolabi is the WBO interim champion at this time.
