RAMIREZ GETS UP FROM KNOCKDOWN, EARNS UD

Unbeaten super lightweight Jose Ramirez (16-0, 12 KO’s) got up from a second-round knockdown and earned a unanimous decision over Johnny Garcia (19-4-1, 11 KO’s) Saturday night in Fresno, CA. The U.S. Olympian, fighting in front of a hometown crowd of 13,120 at the SaveMart Center, won comfortably by scores of 79-73, 79-73 and 77-74.

Ramirez was busy from the opening bell, but he turned it up a notch after taking a short right hand that sent him to the canvas in round two. The elite skills of Ramirez proved to be too much for the tough and willing Garcia.

Top Rank tweeted the following from boss Bob Arum:
