Total domination by Ramirez!..
total fix more like. Abraham flown over to roll over for a nice paycheck.
I really think Abraham was truly overwhelmed by Ramirez’ level of skills. He took the lead, always attacked with different angles, fast feet movements… And a great size and age advantage. I think has the full package. Abraham best days are far behind him now.
And55, Conspiracy theory!!! Give me a break !!!. Arthur isn’t that kind of boxer and mainly when he was exposing his title. He is seasoned boxer and well respected in this sport who was willing to achieve the victory in order to get better recognition in America and new fights to make the kind of money he isn’t able to do in Europe., however he failed in his commitment since Ramirez was thoughter than expected. On the other hand, if you are right, why he should fight till to the last round when could have ended with the same money simulating a fall in any early round. Did you see round 6, it clear tells you that your comment is wrong.
The problem here, as I said above, was just a total wrong evaluation of his opponent. He was not prepared to find a guy that moves in the ring with such a proficiency and connecting power punches most of the time. In addition too Ramirez is younger, taller, therefore big reach advantage, faster, very strong either, and southpaw. He has all the package so Arthur was toasted from the very beginning. Again a pretty bad selection of his opponent to defend his title.
Nice fight with a very good Mexican prospect dominating almost the whole fight but round 6. Arthur was unable to find the openings to hit hard an opponent that was really fast and a very elusive target due to his perfect moves in the ring.
I fully believe that Arthur and/or his manager did a bad evaluation of Ramirez choosing him to defend Arthur’s title under the wrong impression that Ramirez could be easily handled in spite of his good record. Should Arthur having won this fight the interest of having him in a future bout in America for the big money would be phenomenally increased. However, it was a pretty bad assumption/decision.
