A dynamic performer who can do it all in the ring, 22-year-old Julian “El Camaron” Ramirez (14-0, 8 KOs) has taken the fight world by storm since turning pro in 2012, and with each bout, the anticipation to see him in action grows. At 4-0 in 2014, the Los Angeles southpaw got 2015 off to a rousing start with his dominant win over a tough veteran in Hidalgo, and he's eager to put on another show for LA FIGHT CLUB fans in August.
Mexico City's Hugo “Guerrero” Partida (21-5-2, 16 KOs) is expected by many to be the toughest test of the young Ramirez' career, and given the 24-year-old's power and experience, that may certainly be the case on August 6. Winner of four of his last five bouts, Partida has held the interim WBC FECARBOX title at 122 pounds, and a victory over Ramirez can put him on the right track toward world title honors.
Unbeaten in 19 professional fights, La Puente, Calif.'s Abraham “Chamaco” Lopez (18-0-1, 13 KOs) wants to start making his move to the elite level at 126 pounds, and despite a draw against Juan Carlos Martinez in March, the 27-year-old's fifth-round knockout of Alfred Tetteh in May proved that he's ready for that next step. Owner of wins over Gabriel Tolmajyan and Aaron Garcia, Lopez is looking forward to his next challenge.
Popular East LA prospect Roy “Pitbull” Tapia (10-0-2, 5 KOs) made his first LA FIGHT CLUB appearance in March, winning a hard-fought decision over Ali Gonzalez that kept his unbeaten record intact. On August 6, the 23-year-old super bantamweight wants to start a new knockouts streak, and he promises that whoever opposes him on fight night will be in for a rough battle.
Francisco Ochoa (1-0) of South Los Angeles is a new fighter looking to make his mark in the professional boxing scene. Ochoa made an impressive professional debut on March 27, 2015 after dominating opponent Misael Chacon at Quiet Cannon in Montebello, Calif. Ochoa, who was born in Mexico, trains out of the New Generation Boxing Academy in Lynwood, Calif. He began boxing at age 7, following in the footsteps of three older brothers. He started competing at age 8 and racked up 35 wins and two losses during his fiery amateur career. On August 6, Ochoa will look to continue his winning streak in his second professional bout at LA FIGHT CLUB.
