Robeisy Ramirez makes quick work of Yeuri Andujar!
2012 and 2016 Olympic Gold Medalist Robeisy Ramirez (3-1, 3KOs) kicked off Top Rank’s return to boxing since the COVID-19 pandemic with a BANG!
The fighter best known as the last man to defeat WBO featherweight champion Shakur Stevenson, scored a first round knockout on the first fight of the card over Dominican fighter Yeuri Andujar (5-4, 3KO).
In the opening round, Ramirez came out fast almost immediately going to the body! Jabs to the body set up a beautiful overhand left that instantly hurt Andujar before another overhand left dropped him. Moments later after Andujar rose to his feet, Ramirez was on him like white on rice quickly applying pressure as he cornered his outgunned adversary and put him down after throwing and landing repeated overhand lefts.
This time, referee Tony Weeks would not allow the over-matched Andujar continue.
All in all it was a quick night for Ramirez who has seemed to finally get his feet under him as a pro after a surprising loss in his debut fight. This victory is his third consecutive one by knockout.
If he’s able to keep up this momentum and improve he could definitely be one to keep your eyes on!
