Gilberto Ramirez works out for Derek Edwards clash (photos)

Top super-middleweight contender Gilberto Ramirez has been putting in some hard graft at Fortune Gym for his upcoming showdown with the dangerous Derek Edwards.

At just 23 years old, the 2011 WBN Prospect of the Year is already 31-0 with 24 KO’s and is set to defend his WBO International title for the second time.

An opportunity at a world crown is said to be around the corner for Ramirez, who can ill-afford any slip-ups against the wily American.

Edwards, 35, recently knocked out current WBC title holder Badou Jack just prior to the champion claiming the green belt and has his eyes on spoiling another party when the pair collide in Texas on June 26.
