JOSE RAMIREZ JR. ROAD TO A WBC WORLD TITLE VS MIKE REED

*(November 9, 2017 – Fresno, California) – *For Jose Ramirez Jr. (20-0, 15
KOs), this moment has not been as easy as it seems. It has taken him a lot
of sacrifices, blood, sweat, and tears to have the opportunity he has
this Saturday,
November 11, 2017, to fight this Eliminator, which with a win gives him the
chance to fight for the WBC World Super Lightweight Title next. To be a
World Champion is the dream Jose Ramirez Jr. is finally so close to after
years of training, discipline, sacrifice, and dedication to Boxing.

Jose Ramirez Jr. was born in the small city of Avenal, Ca on August 12,
1992, to nurturing parents, immigrants of Michoacan, Mexico. Ramirez, a
first-generation Mexican born here in the U.S. grew up in seeing his
parents and family work in the fields of Central California. Not one day
passed where he wasn’t grateful for how hard his parents worked for their
family. He started Boxing at the age of 8 years old and fell in love with
the sport when he won his first trophy as an amateur. He enjoyed the cheers
and people calling him “Champ” so much, he wanted more. As an amateur, he
won many important tournaments, never losing a USA tournament since the age
of 13 which led to represent TEAM USA in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Coming back from London to his small town in Avenal, Jose realized how much
the town and people commended his career as an Amateur. This inspired him
not only to continue Boxing professionally but also to be a voice for
farmworkers, for immigrants, for the community who needs help and stays
quiet, he vowed to be that voice. After offers from many promotion
companies, Ramirez, with the help of his advisor, Rick Mirigian, signed a
promotional contract with Top Rank. One of the best we’ve seen in Boxing as
he can co-promote under his own promotional company JCR Promotions.

With the help of Top Rank, Rick Mirigan and most importantly all of his
supporters and fans, at the young age of 25, Jose Ramirez Jr. has SOLD OUT
different venues in Central California with his shows Fight For Water. All
shows giving back to the community as he once promised.

This weekend, Ramirez faces a tough fight against undefeated Mike “Yes
Indeed” Reed (23-0, 12 KOs) in front of 15,000 people LIVE with millions
watching on ESPN. He has trained hard under the tutelage of Hall Of Fame
Trainer Freddie Roach for this big opportunity. Jose is not only fighting
for his victory and opportunity at the prestigious WBC Green Belt, but also
a victory for Central California, for the world to see everything he has
been fighting for, his family, his community, Farmworkers, Immigrants,
Amateur boxers, for the future of the world, for his son, Matteo and all
the new generation to have a better future and better opportunities.
