(May 1, 2021) Welterweight contender Abel Ramos (27-4-2, 21 KOs) delivered an impressive performance in stopping former champion Omar “Panterita” Figueroa Jr. (28-2-1, 19 KOs) after six-rounds in their WBA Welterweight Title Eliminator.
Figueroa came out showing off a herky-jerky style and had success in the first round, out landing Ramos slightly with 12 power punches to Ramos’ 11.
"Omar is a very tricky fighter,” said Ramos. “He has an awkward defense and it was hard to catch him clean at first, but the fight overall went as planned.”
As the fight hit round three, Ramos appeared to figure out the timing of his opponent and began unloading a lethal right hand that he would eventually ride to victory.
That third round saw a significant bruise begin to develop under Figueroa’s left eye as a result of that Ramos right hand. Ramos kept up his momentum during rounds four and five, while Figueroa came out aggressive in round six, winging big power shots looking to turn the tide back in
