Jose Ramirez and Gabriel Flores Jr. Visit Community Cancer Institute

PhilBoxing.com




Ramirez-Jose Zepeda and Ray Beltran-Hiroki Okada to be televised LIVE on Sunday, Feb. 10 on ESPN and ESPN Deportes beginning at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT

CLOVIS, Calif. (Feb. 7, 2019) — WBC super lightweight champion Jose Ramirez has fought for many causes near and dear to his heart and to the citizens of California's Central Valley. As he readies to defend his title against Jose "Chon" Zepeda on Sunday at Fresno's Save Mart Center, Ramirez is using his platform to continue the fight against cancer.

Ramirez, along with undefeated prospect Gabriel Flores Jr., visited cancer patients and their families Thursday at the Community Cancer Institute, one of the nation's premier cancer treatment facilities.

"I lost my grandpa to cancer a few months ago, and I saw how important it was that he had the love and support of his family," Ramirez said. "If the patient is fighting, then the family should be there fighting as well. I think that's what you are going to see on Sunday. The whole Central Valley community is also fighting with you guys and will be bringing that motivation and encouragement."

More than 10,000 fans are expected to pack the Save Mart Center to watch Ramirez, who hails from nearby Avenal. Ramirez will auction off his fight-worn purple gloves and assorted fight night attire, with all proceeds benefitting the Community Cancer Institute. A portion of all ticket sales will be donated to the Community Cancer Institute, and Ramirez and his manager, Rick Mirigian, will also donate 1,000 tickets to Community Cancer Institute patients and their families.

When Ramirez walks to the ring, everyone in the arena will hold up a special sign that reads, '"Let's KO Cancer."

Ramirez-Zepeda and the 140-pound showdown between former lightweight world champion Ray Beltran and Hiroki Okada will headline a special Top Rank on ESPN card beginning at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT on ESPN and ESPN Deportes. Flores' bout against Alex Torres Rynn will be part of the ESPN+ undercard stream beginning at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT.

Promoted by Top Rank, tickets to this world championship event priced at $150, $90, $60, $35, and $25 are on sale now and can be purchased at the Save Mart Center box office, Ticketmaster.com, or by calling 800-745-3000.
