Undefeated light heavyweight Gilberto Ramirez signs promotional deal with Golden Boy

Undefeated light heavyweight Gilberto Ramirez has signed a promotional deal with Golden Boy for multiple fights.

The 29-year-old Ramirez (41-0, 27 KOs) had won the WBO super middleweight belt, but after five title defenses he decided to jump to light heavyweight, where he has won two fights.

"They understood the goals and the agendas I have and I have full faith in Oscar [De La Hoya] and the team to make the big fights happen," Ramirez said. "I look forward to working with them closely and to this new chapter of my career."

Ramirez's goal is an eventual world title shot. The last time he held a belt, he beat Jesse Hart by majority decision in 2018 to retain his super middleweight crown.

Artur Beterbiev holds the WBC and IBF belts in the division and Dmitry Bivol the WBA belt. Neither fighter has lost in his career. Beterbiev fights next month. Bivol hasn't fought since 2019.
