Saturday night at the Bank of America Center in Corpus Christi, Texas saw Mexico’s super-middleweight star Gilberto Ramirez move to 37-0.

‘Zurdo’, who was picked out by WBN as a future world champion back in 2011, dominated unknown opponent Habib Ahmed before finishing the contest in the sixth.

Despite Ahmed’s 25-0-1 record pre-fight, Ramirez was a massive favorite leading into his third defense and had little trouble taking out the Ghanaian, whose record consisted of ten wins against fighters who’d never scored a victory in the ring.

In the end, you can only defeat what’s put in front of you and WBO super-middleweight champion Ramirez did that with minimal fuss.

The co-feature saw Manny Pacquiao protege and clone Jerwin Ancajas successfully retain his IBF super-flyweight belt by stopping Israel Gonzalez in the tenth.

Ancajas, on a hot streak of 14 knockouts in 15 wins prior, took his record to 29-1-1 and recorded three knockdowns along the way.

Gonzalez hit the canvas in the first and twice in the tenth before the fight was eventually called off with Ancajas doing considerable damage.

Also on the bill, Jesse Hart took less than a round to take out Thomas Awimbono, whilst super middleweights Rohan Murdock and Jose Benavidez both enjoyed stoppage wins on the Top Rank card.

Rising star Teofimo Lopez made it eight victories on the spin as a pro with a decision success over Juan Pablo Sanchez, whilst super featherweight Gabriel Flores Jr is now 6-0 following a first round TKO.

Finally, super welterweight David Kaminsky made his debut with a points win over Rafael Munoz.
