Michael Dutchover ready to continue progress tonight
Talented junior lightweight prospect Michael Dutchover (9-0, 6 KOs) aims to continue the hot start to his career when he battles Sergio Ramirez (4-2, 4 KOs) in the “Path to Glory” main event tonight.
The pair weighed in at Thursday’s weigh in, with Dutchover reaching the contract weight limit of 133 lbs., while the challenging Ramirez was slightly under at 132.5 lbs.
The marquee attraction is Dutchover’s first since turning professional nearly two years ago. The 20-year-old out of Midland, Tex. is riding a wave of confidence heading into Friday’s fight.
“I spar with wold champions and contenders all the time so I’m ready to put on a great show,” said Dutchover, who is promoted by Thompson Boxing and Banner Promotions. “I put in an excellent training camp just like always. I can go the full eight rounds if I need to, but I don’t think I will.”
