The twin brother of fellow undefeated prospect Jermell, Jermall Charlo (9-0, 5 KO’s) has been steadily building his professional resume and he’s made it clear that he wants one more victory before 2013 begins. The 22-year-old Charlo is coming off of a fifth round technical knockout win over Sean Wilson in March, and will look for his tenth straight against Chicago’s Edgar Perez (5-1, 3 KO’s), a Puerto Rico native making his first U.S. start this weekend.

 

The only three-time U.S. Olympian in history, Cincinnati’s Rau’Shee Warren (1-0) was one of the most decorated amateurs this nation has ever seen. Looking to build a similar resume as a professional, the 25-year-old got off to a good start on November 9 with a four round win over Luis Rivera in his pro debut. On Saturday, he will meet Montebello’s David Reyes (2-2-1) in a four-round bantamweight fight.

 

Hailing from Coram, New York, junior welterweight Jamel Herring is the latest member of the Class of 2012 to enter the professional fight game. A two-time Gold medalist in the Armed Forces Championships, the former number one ranked U.S. junior welterweight will face Jose Valderrama (3-2, 3 KO’s) of Manati, Puerto Rico in a four round junior welterweight match.

 

In a light heavyweight bout scheduled for six rounds, Fort Washington, Maryland’s Thomas Williams (10-0, 7 KO’s) will attempt to extend his three-fight first round knockout streak when he takes on Obregon, Mexico’s Ricardo Campillo (7-4-1, 5 KO’s).

 

Plus, Santa Ana’s Erick Ituarete (3-0) meets debuting San Jose product Noe Lucas in a junior lightweight match, Vallejo’s Gerald Washington (4-0, 3 KO’s) is pitted against Hannibal, Missouri’s Marcus Washington (1-0, 1 KO) in heavyweight action and Toledo, Ohio’s Robert Easter Jr. (1-0, 1 KO) takes on Albuquerque lightweight David Castillo (3-4) in the opening fight. This trio of bouts are scheduled for four rounds each.

Luis Ramos to Face Noe Bolaños

LOS ANGELES, September 1 – The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center will get the month of September off to a rousing start on Saturday the 8th when unbeaten junior welterweight rising star Luis Ramos Jr. looks for win number 23 in a row against veteran standout Noe Bolaños in a 10-round bout that headlines September’s edition of Golden Boy Promotions’ boxing series on FOX Sports Net and FOX Deportes.

 

In the co-main event, scheduled for 10 rounds in the heavyweight division, 2008 United States Bronze Medalist Deontay “Bronze Bomber” Wilder looks for his 25th knockout in 25 fights against fellow unbeaten Damon McCreary.

24-year-old Luis Ramos Jr. (22-0, 9 KO’s) has shown remarkable skill and poise with each successive step up in competition he has taken. In 2011, Ramos began his run to the top with big wins over Francisco Lorenzo and David Rodela, but this year, the Santa Ana, Calif. southpaw upped the ante even more by decisioning respected contender Raymundo Beltran in January and then nearly shutting out rugged former world title challenger Daniel Attah in April. He’ll look to remain undefeated against the always tough Bolaños on the 8th.

 

Ciudad Obregon’s Noe Bolaños (24-6-1, 16 KO’s) has grown up in the world of professional boxing, turning professional a week after his 17th birthday in 2003. Since then, he has built a well-earned reputation as a rugged warrior willing to throw hands with anyone in the game at a moment’s notice. After some rough outings between 2007 and 2009, Bolaños got back on track in 2010 and has won four of his last five, all by knockout. On September 8, he will test the unbeaten Ramos.

 

Already 4-0 in 2012, with knockout wins over Marlon Hayes, Jesse Oltmanns, Owen Beck and Kertson Manswell, Tuscaloosa, Alabama’s Deontay Wilder (24-0, 24 KO’s) has been cutting a path of destruction through the heavyweight division throughout his career. A 2008 United States Olympic Bronze Medalist with knockout power in both hands, the 26-year-old “Bronze Bomber” has just one suggestion for those watching his fight on September 8, don’t blink.

Detroit’s Damon “Bulldog” McCreary (14-0, 10 KO’s) has yet to taste defeat in a professional boxing ring and on September 8 he has every intention of keeping that streak intact by shocking rising star Wilder. The owner of a technical knockout win over Etianne Whitaker, the 39-year-old will be making his first appearance in California and he’s primed and ready to perform.
