Headlining this grand affair, Fresno’s own Jose Ramirez, an Olympian with a trophy case that’s seen better days, steps back into his ring after a year’s hiatus, looking to dust off his gloves against Las Vegas’ Rances Barthelemy. With the echoes of his last knockout still ringing, Ramirez is all set to give his hometown fans a night to remember. Barthelemy, not one to walk quietly into the night, eyes this fight as his golden ticket to boxing immortality, aiming to etch his name as Cuba’s first three-division world champion.

Not to be overshadowed, the co-main event sees Vergil Ortiz Jr., a knockout artist with a perfect record, sizing up Thomas Dulorme. Ortiz, one fight shy of a world title shot, promises to keep the adrenaline pumping after his jaw-dropping performance earlier in the year. Dulorme, hungry for a significant showdown, knows Ortiz well from their sparring days and guarantees a brawl that’ll have fans spilling their popcorn.

Oscar De La Hoya, the puppet master behind Golden Boy, can barely contain his excitement, promising a night that’ll carve itself into Fresno’s history. With both Ramirez and Ortiz Jr. eyeing world championship glory, they first need to navigate past two seasoned warriors in a night that promises to deliver more than just punches.

Alfie Sharman of DAZN and Tom Brown of TGB Promotions are already placing their bets on this being more than just a fight night; it’s a festival of fists and fury. And for the local hero Ramirez and the Texas tornado Ortiz Jr., their manager Rick Mirigian couldn’t be prouder, declaring this event a monumental moment for Fresno and the Central Valley.
