The head and founder of Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya, has high hopes for his ward Gilberto Ramirez (41-0, 27 KOs).
“Our long-term plan is to push his record to 52-0 to surpass Floyd Mayweather’s record,” De La Hoya said.
“We want him to remain undefeated and break the record 50-0. Then he will set another record. He was the first Mexican middleweight champion. Now he could be the first fighter to break Floyd Mayweather’s record.”
Recall that on July 9, Ramirez will play a duel with Cuban veteran Sullivan Barrera, which should become a springboard for the Mexican to a title fight in the light heavyweight division.
