Fight Preview

Ramirez had to get special permission from his Top Rank promoters to take part in this unification title bout against Hooker. And he is grateful that a deal was worked out.
"I was thankful of my promoters, Bob Arum, Top Rank, ESPN” said Ramirez. "For them to allow me to come to a different network and different promotional company to perform, they made a big step to allow me to do that.
"That was the only way this fight was going to be possible. If I came to his territory and his network. That was the only way the fight of this magnitude was going to take place."
Ramirez and Hooker have been eager to square off, which helped speed the contract negotiations along. With the fighters eager for a matchup the promoters followed their lead and made it happen. There is also the vision that both fighters share about future undisputed unification title bouts.

"Jose wanted to fight me, I wanted to fight him. We wanted to show everybody who's best at 140 who's not in the tournament," said Hooker. "It was easy to make, not that hard."

"It's very exciting," Hooker said. "Now we're going to see who's the best at 140. The division is hot. We're young, we're in our prime, so it's the best time to fight each other. It's going to be an action fight. May the best man win. I'm preparing, me and my team. We'll be ready for anything he brings.

“I want to show the world that I’m the best in the 140-pound division,” continued Hooker. “My dream is to become the undisputed champion in my weight class. This unification fight with Jose Ramirez is a major step towards that goal. It will be a thrill to do this in front of my home crowd and I’m looking forward to the energy they’ll bring to the ring. I am a dream killer, and Ramirez will be my next victim coming July 27.

Ramirez is equally stoked for the showdown.

"I'm excited to see how a fighter like Maurice Hooker is going to react to a fighter like myself, who's an Olympian, who not just has the power and comes forward, but is very defensive as he's coming forward and uses angles," said Ramirez.
