Eduardo Ramirez Bio
Hailing from Mexico, Eduardo "Zurdito" Ramirez is looking better than ever with each passing bout, establishing himself as one of the best featherweights in the world.
An Anomalous Beginning
Eduardo Ramirez’s entry into pugilism is an anomaly compared to many who grew up in boxing-rich Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico—an area which has produced notable champions such as five-time titlist Fernando Montiel.
“I loved all sports, including basketball, baseball and soccer,” said Ramirez. “I didn’t really start boxing until I was 14 years old, but when I did, I fell in love immediately.”
Armed with a scrappy, grinding, yet well-schooled style out of a southpaw stance, Ramirez earned the nickname “Zurdito,” which translates into “Little Left-Hander,” from his gruelling sparring sessions with Montiel, four-division titlist Jorge Arce and two-division winner Hugo Cazares.
“Those men were extremely beneficial to my career,” said Ramirez, who turned professional after an amazingly brief amateur career during which he went 8-1-2. “I was only 16 when I started my amateur career, but when it was time to turn professional, they told me that I was ready.”
Ramirez won his professional debut by four-round unanimous decision over Francisco Amaral at 122 ¼ pounds in September 2010.
“Zurdito’s” 4-0-1 mark in 2011 comprised first- and second-round TKOs of Juan Pedro Rodriguez (March) and Christian Osorio (April) and four-round unanimous decisions over Alex Robles (June) and Edgar Bustillos (November) with a draw against then-unbeaten Mario Munoz (October) in between. Munoz entered at 9-0 (7 KOs).
Ramirez also went 4-0-1 over the course of 2012 and 2013, the former comprising four-round unanimous decisions over Gregorio Cortez (February) and Bustillos (June) with a second-round TKO of Wilbert Ortiz (March) in between.
Consecutive sixth-round TKOs of Miguel Armando Martinez (April) and Rafal Raez (September) in 2014 preceded a five-fight 2015, with Martinez entering at 3-0-1 (3 KOs).
The following year, Ramirez’s second-round TKO of Jose Eduardo Poom (February) preceded a six-round unanimous decision over Eleazar Valenzuela (September), consecutive eight-round unanimous decisions over Alem Robles (May) and Jesus Quintero (July) and another over nine rounds over Roman Morales (March), a southpaw who came in at 19-0 (10 KOs).
Ramirez went 3-0 in 2016, his third-round TKO of Miseal Buitimea (February) being followed by a six-round unanimous decision over Alan Salazar (July) and his career-first 10-round unanimous decision over Edivalgo Ortega (December), who entered at 24-0-1 (13 KOs).
Always The Underdog
Ramirez went 1-1-1 in 2017, his eight-round unanimous decision over Guillermo Osvaldo Soloppi (May) preceding a draw with talent Cuban southpaw Leduan Barthelemy (September), who entered at 13-0 (7 KOs).
Then, at 20-0-3 (7 KOs), Ramirez traveled to England to face IBF champion Lee Selby (December), who improved to 26-1 (9 KOs) following his unanimous decision victory.
“Zurdito” rebounded, however, going 3-1 over the course of his next four bouts, starting with a first-round TKOs of Carlos Jacobo (November 2018). He went 2-1 (2 KOs) in 2019 comprising a ninth-round TKO of Bryan De Gracia (March 2019), a unanimous decision loss to left-handed former champion Claudio “The Matrix” Marrero (June) and an inspiring fourth-round TKO in his rematch with Barthelemy (November), who dropped to 15-1-1 (7 KOs).
“I’d like to dedicate this fight to my deceased grandfather. This win is in memory of him,” said Ramirez, who was given just over two weeks’ notice for his return bout with Barthelemy.
“I definitely know that it was a close fight, but my corner kept telling me to keep going and going, and that’s when I caught him. I didn’t just come here to fight, I came here to do something and I did it.”
On December 5, 2020, Ramirez scored a fifth-round TKO over Miguel Flores at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. It was a back and forth war until Ramirez took over and put Flores away.
Ramirez returned to the ring on May 1, 2021, knocking out Isaac Avelar in three rounds. He would follow that up with a 10-round unanimous decision over Miguel Marriaga on December 5, 2021.
Then on May 28, 2022, Ramirez won a 10-round majority decision over Luis Melendez (17-2, 13 KOs) at Brooklyn, New York's Barclays Center, live on SHOWTIME pay-per-view.
The contest was fought evenly throughout, with both fighters building momentum at certain moments, only to have their opponent fire back to keep the action squared. The punch stats reflected the close nature of the fight, with Melendez holding a 193 to 171 edge in punches landed, while Ramirez bested him in accuracy by a 31% to 29% margin.
In round eight, Melendez resorted to dropping his hands while on the ropes, in the hopes of catching a hard-charging Ramirez. However, Ramirez would go on to have his biggest advantage in punches landed in that frame (28-19). After a hard-fought round 10 that all three judges scored for Ramirez, he took home the victory with scores of 95-95, 98-92 and 96-94.
"I want to fight for the world title next,” said Ramirez. “I'm ready for any of the top fighters. I don't shy away from tough challenges."
Indeed. On September 4, 2022, Ramirez faced hard-hitting Isaac Cruz at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. Cruz's power proved to be too much as he stopped Ramirez in two rounds.
"I lost and I have to accept that,” said Ramirez. “I'll get better and move forward. I felt like I was fighting well and then everything turned all of a sudden. That's just boxing. Now I'm going to rest, recover and plan my next moves going forward. But I'll definitely be back, you can count on that."
