Sergio Garcia vs. Jesus Ramos likely for Spence-Crawford undercard on July 29

Fighters Network

A fight between junior middleweight contenders Sergio Garcia and Jesus Ramos is likely to land on July 29, a source confirmed to The Ring Sunday night.

Jake Donovan was the first to break the news.

The bout between Garcia and Ramos will take place on the undercard of the Errol Spence-Terence Crawford undisputed welterweight championship fight, which will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Both fights will air live on Showtime Pay-Per-View.

Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz posted on his Twitter account the Garcia-Ramos fight, among others he is promoting throughout the summer. 

Garcia (34-2, 14 knockouts) faced Sebastian Fundora in a clash of unbeatens in December 2021, losing by unanimous decision. Garcia would face former WBC world titleholder Tony Harrison about five months later, losing by decision over 10 one-sided rounds.

The 30-year-old returned to action on April 15, defeating once-beaten Ricardo Cabana by unanimous decision in his hometown of Torrelavega, Spain.

Ramos (20-0, 16 KOs), who resides in Casa Grande, Arizona, last fought on March 25, dropping Joey Spencer once before stopping him in the seventh round of the one-sided fight between two unbeatens.

In his previous fight on May 28 of last year, Ramos defeated Luke Santamaria by unanimous decision. Ramos has also defeated Javier Molina, Brian Mendoza, who stopped Sebastian Fundora, Jesus Bojorquez, Esteban Garcia, and Ramal Amanov.

The 22-year-old is the nephew of former welterweight contender Abel Ramos.
