Unified junior welterweight champion Jose Ramirez (25-0, 18 KOs) announced over the weekend that he’s officially penned a deal to re-sign with Top Rank promotions on a multi-year contract.

“Happy to announce that I have re-signed a multi year contract with top rank,” Ramirez wrote in the caption. “They have allowed me to promote fights in the Central Valley since early on. And have worked with me to use ESPN as a platform to fight for positive issues like Immigration, Water and The fight For cancer.

“They have build me right and I know in my division they will make sure I get the best fights against the best. It’s a life changing opportunity, but I’ll give it my best and will train harder then ever to continue growing as fighter and as person. My goal for 2020 is to become undisputed champion. But first I must focus on Viktor Postol who I will be fighting Feb 1st in China. Thank you everyone for all your support, God bless!”

Ramirez, 27, is most recently coming off his title unification win over Maurice Hooker in July and is currently scheduled to take on Viktor Postol on February 1st. Should Ramirez come through that title defense successfully, he’ll have to get past another unified titleholder in Josh Taylor if he wants to realize his dream of becoming undisputed champion.
