A 26-year-old boxer called Robeisy Ramirez thumped his opponent so hard snot flung out of his nose and went all over his face.Ramirez landed the snot shot en route to winning a six-round decision during a Top Rank promoted show at the MGM Grand Conference Center, known as “The Bubble,” in Las Vegas on Thursday.The punch, and the victory, may well have been revenge. The opponent, Adan Gonzales, handed Ramirez a loss on his debut after the Cuban had taken much acclaim into the professional ranks. Ramirez won gold medals at both the 2012 and 2016 Olympic Games.That acclaim was derailed after a disastrous debut in which he lost a four-round decision to Gonzales last year.
Watch Thursday’s snot shot here:—ESPN Ringside (@ESPNRingside) July 3, 2020″I wanted to put our first fight behind me, and I did that,” Ramirez said. “Ever since our first fight, I wanted the rematch. I am glad this chapter of my career is behind me now.”Ramirez advanced his record to 4 wins (3 knockouts) against 1 loss after his mid-week win, his second fight in the coronavirus era after featuring on a show last month in which he beat Yeuri Andujar by stoppage.That win was a 54-second hammering, which you can watch right here, as Ramirez was one of the first boxers to compete in three months because of a COVID-enforced hiatus.
Ramirez said if Thursday’s contest were longer, rather than six rounds, he would have closed the show with a finish just like he did last month.”A couple more rounds and I could’ve scored the knockout,” he said.”I’ll take the win and continue to work hard on my craft.”Read more:
