Ramirez, at 32, isn’t just fighting for another belt. He’s out to etch his name in the annals of boxing history. After being the first Mexican to nab a super middleweight world title, he’s got his sights set on repeating history in the cruiserweight division against Goulamirian, the Armenian bruiser who’s made his home in France but trains out of Big Bear, California.

“I’m gunning to be the first Mexican cruiserweight champ and bag a world title in two different divisions,” declared Ramirez. He reflected on his previous bouts, noting each fight has honed his skills, adding new tricks to his arsenal. The move up in weight seems to be suiting him, making his training and preparation smoother.

But Ramirez isn’t stopping there. He’s got dreams of dominating the heavyweight division next, wanting to leave the sport as a multi-division champion. “I’ve got my eyes on unifying the cruiserweight titles or even snagging the undisputed champion title before I jump up a division,” he stated.

“Arsen Goulamirian’s hyped to bring the heat to Los Angeles for his first U.S. showdown,” he stated. “Zurdo’s got championship dreams, but he’s got to get past a genuine cruiserweight force like me. I’ve been on Abel Sanchez’s case for ages about duking it out in the States, and it’s finally happening.”

Zurdo Ramirez is gearing up to carve out his legacy as the first Mexican cruiserweight king. “Stepping up to this division, I knew Arsen and I were on a collision course,” Zurdo declared. “I’m feeling right at home in this weight class and aiming for the top spot. Big shoutout to DAZN, Golden Boy, the WBA, my squad, and my family for their unwavering support. Catch you all on the 30th.”
