Venezuelan southpaw Albert Ramirez got his start in the major leagues in 2018. After the Olympic Games of Rio in 2016, where he carved out a spot for himself among the top 10 of the world elites in the 81 kg category, finishing 9th, his career progressed rapidly. Ramirez’s trip to the Olympics was the result of blood, sweat and tears he put in to competing in several major international competitions from 2012 to 2016. The turning point in his amateur career was 2015, the year he joined the World Boxing Series and was able to gain valuable experience. That same year, he also took home the silver medal in the Toronto 2015 Pan Am Games.
After a triumphant start at the professional level—15 fights and 15 victories, 14 of which did not go the distance—Ramirez joined the ranks of Montreal promoter Eye of the Tiger in his quest for bigger and better fights, and for higher rankings. Now, as he starts out under the aegis of EOTTM, the light-heavyweight is ranked #13 by BoxRec and #11 by the WBO, and is the current WBO Global titleholder for his division. It’s a safe bet that Ramirez’ powerful style will lead to many victories and will win over boxing fans all around the world!
