Ramirez liquifies Miguel Flores with a hellacious counter right uppercut
After a few thrilling rounds, Eduardo “Zurdito” Ramirez (24-2-3, 11 KO’s) scored a sudden fifth-round TKO victory over Miguel Flores (24-4, 12 KO’s). The win was all the more sweet due to the bout being a WBA world featherweight title eliminator. While both boxers were throwing good solid punches, the prizefight had not turned into the war that it appeared to be morphing into.
As the fight was heating up, it was Ramirez who pressed the action. He forced Flores to respond to his intensity. Then, within the first ten seconds of the fifth round, Ramirez annihilated Flores with a devastating counter-right uppercut. The thunderous blow crumbled Flores to the canvas, where he came down very awkwardly on his right ankle.
To his credit, despite being dazed and bleeding from his mouth, Flores beat the count and gave the impression he wanted to continue. However, Laurence Cole did not like the way that Flores was moving and waived the bout off.
