By

 

WBC/WBO World Junior Welterweight Championships: Jose Carlos Ramirez (c) (24-0) vs. Maurice Hooker (c) (26-0-3)

Luke Irwin: Two legit world champions in their prime slugging it out to be a unified champion. Inject this shit directly in my veins. This could go either way, but in this case, I think you have to factor in strength of schedule, which favors Ramirez. Hooker is the more technically brilliant fighter and has has an absurd eight-inch reach advantage. I think he gets control early, but Ramirez withstands and pushes deep in the later rounds. I think this goes to the judges and is damned close, possibly setting up a rematch. Ramirez via MD.

 

IBF World Junior Lightweight Championship: Tevin Farmer (c) (29-4-1) vs. Guillaume Frenois (46-1-1)

Luke: Farmer’s career will always be fascinating to me. Starting his pro career 7-4-1, then to rally to become world champion. Hell, yeah. Don’t let the record fool you. Frenois is almost 36 and has only fought outside France a handful of times, and never outside of Europe. He’s also coming off of a draw to Jono Carroll, whom Farmer recently dispatched, and his opponent before that was 24-16-2. Farmer via UD.

 

Vacant WBO NABO Junior Featherweight/USBA Junior Featherweight Championshipships: Tramine Williams (18-0) vs. Yenifel Vicente (35-3-2)

Luke: Showcase for Williams, here, as he’s probably one more fight away from a world title. Williams via UD.
