Ramirez & Hooker Set for Unification at Junior-Welterweight

A unification bout between WBC Super Lightweight champion Jose Ramirez (24-0-0, 16KO) and WBO titleholder Maurice Hooker (26-0-3, 17KO) has been confirmed for July 27th at College Park Center, Arlington, Texas.  This will be the third defense of each fighters rightful belt.

Ramirez won the vacant WBC when he defeated Amir Imam by unanimous decision in March of 2018. He has since made two successful defenses against Antonio Orozco in September of last year by unanimous decision and Jose Zepeda by majority decision in February earlier this year.

Hooker took a split decision over Terry Flanagan in June of last year to win the then vacant WBO. His successful defenses have come in the form of stopping Alex Saucedo in the 7th round November of last year and in March of this year he took the unanimous decision over Mikkel LesPierre.

The fight will be broadcast on DAZN.
