Filipino fighter Mark Magsayo was determined to secure a convincing victory against Mexican opponent Eduardo Ramirez in their recent super featherweight bout at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This fight was a crucial step for Magsayo, who is eyeing a potential title match against World Boxing Association division champion Lamont Roach.

Magsayo, ranked sixth in the super featherweight division, faced Ramirez, who was not in the top 15 rankings. With a record of 25-2, including 17 knockouts, Magsayo was looking to solidify his position in the division by putting on a dominant performance against his opponent, Ramirez, who held a record of 28-3-3 with 13 knockouts.

Having previously fought in the featherweight class, Magsayo made the strategic decision to move up to the super featherweight division after suffering losses in the lower weight class. This move proved to be beneficial for the fighter, as he scored a knockout victory in his debut at 130 pounds. Another impressive win against Ramirez would potentially elevate Magsayo in the rankings and bring him closer to a title shot.

In a statement to Ring TV, Magsayo expressed the significance of this fight, emphasizing his goal of becoming a two-time world champion. The fighter highlighted the importance of listening to his body and adapting to the changes in his physicality as he moved up in weight class.

Although Ramirez was a formidable opponent with a history of challenging for titles, Magsayo was confident in his abilities and determined to showcase his strength in the ring. Ramirez, who last fought in August and secured a victory by stoppage, presented a challenge that Magsayo was prepared to face head-on.

The outcome of the Magsayo-Ramirez bout would not only impact the rankings in the super featherweight division but also potentially set the stage for a future title opportunity for Magsayo. As the Filipino fighter aimed to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with in the division, his performance against Ramirez would be closely watched by boxing enthusiasts and critics alike. Stay tuned for the latest updates on Magsayo’s journey towards championship glory.
