By Dan Ambrose: A year after winning the WBO World super middleweight title last year in 2016, Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (34-0, 24 KOs) will be making his first defense of his WBO belt against #10 WBC Max Bursak (33-4-1, 15 KOs) on April 22 at a still to be determined venue in California. Some boxing fans see Ramirez as the next Canelo Alvarez, but a better version with more boxing skills and more potential.

Ramirez, 25, won the World Boxing Organization 168lb title last year in April in beating former WBO champion Arthur Abraham by a one-sided 12 round unanimous decision by the scores 120-108 x 3.

By Dan Ambrose: WBO super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez says he doesn’t like the September 10 fight between unbeaten IBF/IBO/WBA/WBC middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin (35-0, 32 KOs) and unbeaten welterweight Kell “Special K” Brook (36-0, 25 KOs), because he doesn’t think Brook has any chance of winning the fight. Ramirez thinks Brook will try moving around the ring for two or three rounds, but the match will end as soon as Triple G lands one of his big shots.

“For me, I don’t like the fight, but if you want to fight with me, then let’s do it,” said Ramirez to fighthub.com. “No, I don’t give him [Brook] a chance. I think he’s going to move around for two or three rounds, but when Gennady throws a good punch, he’s going to knock him out. One punch,” said Ramirez.
