Julian Ramirez and Abraham Lopez to join ‘LA Fight Club’


Two of Golden Boy Promotions’ top unbeaten prospects commence the 2016 ‘LA Fight Club’ series.

Featherweights Julian Ramirez and Abraham Lopez will fight in separate, 10-round bouts on Jan. 29 at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, Calif.

Both bouts will air live on Estrella TV, beginning at 10 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. PT. RingTVLive.com will air preliminary action, which begins at 5:30 p.m. PT.

The southpaw Ramirez (15-0, 8 knockouts) won a one-sided, 10-round decision over Hugo Partida in his last bout on Oct. 3 in Carson, Calif. The 22-year-old East Los Angeles resident has an aggressive style but has begun utilizing more-effective ring generalship in his last several fights.

Ramirez is managed by Joel De La Hoya.

Lopez (19-0-1, 14 KOs) has not fought since Aug. 6, when he stopped Jorge Diaz after the ninth round in Los Angeles. It was his third fight since taking a three-year hiatus from boxing, during which he completed his education to become a respiratory therapist.

The 28-year-old Lopez also has wins over Aaron Garcia, Gabriel Tolmajyan, and Alfred Tetteh. He resides in nearby La Puente.
