Magsayo vs Ramirez on Davis vs Martin undercard June 15th

Mark Magsayo Set for WBC Super Featherweight Title Eliminator Against Eduardo Ramirez

Former WBC featherweight champion Mark Magsayo is set to face Eduardo Ramirez in a "WBC Super Featherweight title eliminator" on June 15th during the Gervonta Davis vs. Frank Martin show in Las Vegas, according to a report by Salvador Rodriguez confirmed by Viva Promotions.

Magsayo (25-2, 17 KOs) is best remembered for ending Gary Russell Jr.'s long reign as WBC featherweight champion, capitalizing on Russell's arm injury to secure a narrow victory. However, Magsayo's tenure as champion was short-lived, as he lost the title in his first defense to Rey Vargas by a split decision. He then attempted to claim the interim title but fell short after a late fade against Brandon Figueroa.

In December, Magsayo made a strong comeback by defeating Isaac Avelar in his super featherweight debut, which earned him the WBC's no. 6 ranking. His opponent, Eduardo Ramirez (28-3-3, 13 KOs), currently ranked no. 8, has been on a five-fight winning streak after knocking out Leduan Barthelemy. Ramirez's attempt to move up in weight and challenge Isaac Cruz ended in a second-round defeat, but he has since rebounded with a win at 130 pounds.

The upcoming bout between Magsayo and Ramirez is poised to be a crucial step for both fighters in their pursuit of the WBC super featherweight title.
