Maurice Hooker vs. Jose Ramirez

Maurice Hooker vs. Jose Ramirez, 12 rounds, WBO/WBC junior welterweight
Maurice Hooker is a guy we at BoxingPick are very impressed with. A few years ago he had a terrible performance against Darleys Perez where he struggled badly and got away with a draw. It could have been a loss in that fight with other judges. Since then he has developed something incredibly. He has beaten 4 opponents in a row with an impressive unbeaten record before they faced him. I´ll say it again: 4 UNBEATEN FIGHTERS IN A ROW. How many fighters are willing to take those kind of risks? The 4 of them Courtney Jackson 18-0, Terry Flanagan 33-0, Alex Saucedo 28-0 and Mikkel LesPierre 21-0 had a combined record of 100-0 and he beat them all. Now he is taking on another unbeaten fighter in Jose Ramirez 24-0. This is quite extraordinary in our view. He is once again the underdog as he has been in many of the mentioned fights

The momentum and the confidence that Hooker has at the moment cannot be taken lightly. Hooker really is in the zone. Ramirez is an incredible fighter himself but Hooker will handle him with his long straight shots. Hooker´s straight right hand will play a big role in this fight that we see going the distance with Hooker edging it. His agressiveness along with his attitude will win the fight. The Pick is Maurice Hooker to win and unify the WBO and WBC junior welterweight titles.

The Pick: Maurice Hooker to win fight
