The main card will start at around 8 p.m. ET / 1 a.m. GMT and the main event featuring Ramirez and Pedraza should start at 10 p.m. ET / 3 a.m. GMT. That timing is approximate, as the final time will depend on the earlier bouts. It is a terrific matchup for both. Ramirez (26-1, 17 KO) lost the WBC and WBO titles in his May 22 undisputed championship fight against Josh Taylor, but coming back against Pedraza (29-3, 14 KO) shows that he is serious about keeping himself right in the mix and getting back to another title shot sooner than later.
To be honest, Ramirez had a difficult 2021, when he lost his most recent bout against Josh Taylor. Ramirez, the former 140-pound titleholder did not select a pushover as his comeback opponent. Pedraza, a slick former two-division titleholder, the Puerto Rican is going strong at 32. Undoubtedly, it will not be a walkover for Ramirez, since his opponent is coming into the ring with three consecutive wins!

What did Ramirez & Pedraza have to say about the fight?
“Jose Pedraza is a tough test,” Ramirez said. “He is a very good fighter and has looked good since he adjusted to the 140-pound division. I want to earn another shot at the title. I am not one to talk much. I come to face the best and let my performances in the ring speak for themselves.”
“Facing a Mexican warrior like Ramírez and being part of the historic rivalry between Mexico and Puerto Rico is something very important and a great responsibility. At the same time, it’s a great thrill to give the fans a legendary match that they will remember forever. I want to put up a great fight. I want to give the fans a war.”
“It would mean a lot becoming champion for a third time. It would put my name along with the legends of Puerto Rico, and it would mean lot for the island, too.” He added.
