Ramirez-Imam: Face Off at Final Presser

Jose Ramirez and Amir Imam size each other up ahead of tomorrow night’s title fight.

Wil Esco is an assistant editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2014.

Tomorrow night on ESPN we’ll see two junior welterweight contenders, Jose Ramirez (21-0, 16 KOs) and Amir Imam (21-1, 18 KOs) square off for the vacant WBC title. The two held their final press conference yesterday which also featured legendary (or infamous) promoters Bob Arum and Don King working together once again.

Imam, 27, will be entering this fight riding three straight knockout wins since his first professional loss to Adrian Granados in late 2015. And in this fight he’ll be getting first shot at a world title.

Meanwhile his opponent, Ramirez, 25, has never been beaten as is most recently coming off a knockout win over Mike Reed last November.

Check out the video above to see the fighters face off during their final press conference before Saturday’s fight, courtesy of Fight Hub TV. You can also get BLH’s full fight preview right here from our very own Scott Christ.
