Gonzalez upsets former champion Ramos

By John J. Raspanti, Doghouse Boxing


The upset trend continued on ESPN’S Friday Night Fights as unknown Oscar Gonzalez (21-2, 14 KOs) surprised former WBA super bantamweight champion Rico Ramos (21-3, 11 KOs) by ten round unanimous decision at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington.  

Ramos used his quicker hands and feet to control the action in the first two rounds.

Gonzalez, 32, stalked his fleet footed opponent, but couldn’t find him.

The fighters divided the action in rounds three and four. Gonzalez had success in the early going of each round – while Ramos kept working his jab. Gonzalez began to take control in round five. His pressure was bothering Ramos who grabbed and held on.  


A little past the two minute mark of round six, a left hook to the body dumped Ramos on all fours. The former champion was up at seven and jumped on his bicycle. Gonzalez forced his way inside and did some good work.    

Gonzalez took his time going to the body in round seven. Maybe he wanted to keep Ramos guessing. It worked - another left to the basement hurt the pre-fight favorite. Gonzalez continued his success in rounds eight and nine. Ramos, feeling himself behind on scorecards, landed a good left hook.  A sneaky right scored as Gonzalez took the round off.

Ramos flashed combinations during the stanza, but the effect was minimal.  

Gonzalez bobbed and weaved in the last round. Ramos landed a sharp left. The last thirty seconds was toe-to-toe action with neither fighter gaining a substantial edge.

The scores were 98-91, 96-93 and 97-93 all for the very determined Gonzalez.

Doghouseboxing had Gonzalez winning the fight 97-93.
