Richard Quiñones (Journeymen Boxing) – Abel Ramos will meet Jorge Silva in a scheduled 10-round fair that will decide the vacant ABO Region 2 welterweight title Friday night at the Legends Events Center in Phoenix, Arizona.
Ramos (16-1-2, 11KO’s) has won two straight since losing the vacant NABF junior super lightweight title back in 2015. He has come back strong his last two bouts, scoring two straight knockouts.
The hard-hitting Silva (21-11-2, 17KO’s) has struggling of late, dropping eight of nine, but he is still a rugged and tested veteran. Despite being only 24, he has fought 35 career bouts, since turning pro in 2008. Most of his bouts have been in Mexico.
