title Ovill McKenzie vs. Victor Emilio Ramirez on October 2nd in Buenos Aires

mckenzie5By Scott Gilfoid: After toiling around for the last 12 years as a pro without much success, #14 IBF contender Ovill McKenzie (25-12, 13 KOs) will be getting a gift world title shot against newly crowned IBF cruiserweight champion Victor Ramirez (22-2, 17 KOs) in nine days from now on October 2nd at the Villa La Ñata Sporting Club, Benavídez, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
