Welterweight veteran Abel Ramos will attempt to turn his fortunes around on Saturday, when he faces Cody Crowley in a WBC eliminator at 147 lbs on the Benavidez vs Plant pay-per-view undercard.
The 31-year-old Ramos (27-5-2, 21 KO) is coming in with two losses in his last three fights, which date back to 2020. Last time out in Feb. 2022, he dropped a 10-round decision to Luke Santamaria.
It’s entirely fair to say that Ramos really shouldn’t be in a WBC eliminator if boxing were a sport before a business, but it’s not. However it happened, he’s got the shot, and a win over Crowley (21-0, 9 KO) puts Abel Ramos right back in the mix at 147.
Currently, DraftKings have Ramos as a +475 underdog, the biggest on the pay-per-view card, with Crowley a -750 favorite.
Bad Left Hook will have live, round-by-round coverage for the full Benavidez vs Plant PPV card on Saturday, March 25, starting at 9 pm ET.
