Jose Ramirez Stops Maurice Hooker: Full Fight Card Results

Jose Ramirez

Mission accomplished for José Ramírez. The undefeated World Boxing Council (WBC) champion arrived in enemy territory with the objective of adding the World Boxing Organization (WBO) title to his collection, and he did it.

Ramírez (25-0, 17 KO’s), of Avenal, Calif., blasted then-undefeated champion Maurice Hooker with a stoppage at 1:48 of the sixth round in a unification clash that took place at College Park Center. Now, Ramirez will set his sights on unifying all the belts at 140 pounds.

“I am ready to face everyone in the 140-pound division,” said Ramirez. “Every time I trust more and more in my abilities. I just took the title from a great, undefeated champion. I was determined to get out of here with two world titles, and I did it. I want to face the best fighters in the division. I want all the titles. That is my goal,”

Tramaine Williams vs. Yenifel Vicente

Tramaine Williams improves to 17-0 and captures the USBA and NABO Junior Featherweight titles with a win over Yenifel Vicente. The fight wasn’t the cleanest fight, with multiple stoppages in the fight for accidental low blows. Williams stuck to his gameplan of slick movements and boxing to cruise to a UD victory.

Joey Dawejko vs. Rodney Hernandez

Having fought to a split draw in their lost encounter, Joey Dawejko and Rodney Hernandez went the distance once more and this time, Dawejko received the nod.

A hard-fought bout with both fighters finding success throughout the bout. Final scorecards read 96-94 x2 and 98-92 respectively.

Nikita Ababiy vs. Yunier Calzada

Arthur Biyarslanov vs. Solon Staley

Arthur Biyarslanov improves his record to 4-0 with all four wins coming by way of knockout. The Canadian dismantled Solon Staley of South Carolina and in the 3rd round, the referee had seen enough damage and called a halt to the action.
