Ramos: “A lot of people are doubting me for this fight but who cares? It’s me and him in that ring. I came to keep that title. I’m the WBA champ and I will stay the champ. It’s hard work to stay the champion. I put a lot of hard work and dedication into this. I’m still moving, man. I’ve got my son, he’s two, that keeps me motivated. I’ve got my fans, my friends, my family, it all keeps me motivated.”

Rigondeaux: “Of course I should be the betting favorite. What should I expect from Ramos? He has to worry what to expect from me! I’m very happy for the opportunity to win a title with less than 10 pro fights. I’m ready for the challenge.”

    For 18 years,® has delivered daily boxing news to fight fans around the globe. From the beginning, we have always kept Fightnews free to our readers and relied on advertiser support. Anyway, the Miami Herald, The Guardian, and Wikipedia among others have been using the “crowdfunding” revenue model, so we thought we’d test it too.
