World Boxing Council super lightweight champion José Carlos Ramirez was presented with his Green and Gold belt at a special event of the WBC in Mexico City, plus the politest, yet most earnest challenge to his title.
José Carlos Ramirez is taking a few days rest, sporting some dark shades covering his brows, following a tough yet successful defense against Jose Zepeda by decision.
Mexican Pablo Cesar Cano was also present at the conference. PC retained his International Silver crown by knocking out former Venezuelan world champion Jorge “El Niño de Oro” Linares a few weeks ago in the first round. He asked for the opportunity to contest Ramirez`s 140-pound crown, in what would surely be a great fight due to the quality of both.
Ever the gentleman, Jose Carlos smiled, shook hands, the two had a photo taken together and exchanged pleasantries. Whether they swop leather will now be up to their respective promoters.
