RBRBoxing Results: Manuel Avila vs. Jose Ramirez

la-fight-club-11-4

On Friday, November 4, 2016, Manuel Avila will take on Jose Ramirez in a 10-round Featherweight fight on the latest edition of Golden Boy Boxing‘s LA Fight Club at the Belasco Theater in Downtown, Los Angeles, California.

The fight will headline a three-fight Spanish telecast on Estrella TV. RingTVLive.com will stream the entire card in English.

Avila, 24, was formerly a Super Bantamweight prospect and contender, slowly making a name for himself after debuting in 2010.

Wins over the like of Yoandris Salinas and Rene Alvarado helped establish Avila as a growing contender at 122 pounds.

This year, however, Avila decided to make the move to Featherweight for the increased competition, and tonight will be an interesting test for the Fairfield, California resident.

If successful, he will be even closer to one day fighting the top of the division, which includes the likes of Leo Santa Cruz, Carl Frampton and Gary Russell Jr. Needless to say, it is a very tough division.

In the co-main event, Emilio Sancez will take on Diuhl Olguin in an eight0round Super Bantamweight fight, while Pablo Rubio Jr. and Tenochtitlan Nava will fight in separate fights.

The Estrella TV action begins at 7:00 pm, PST. The RingTVLive.com stream will begin earlier at 5:30 pm, PST.
