World Boxing Organisation (WBO) Super Middleweight champion Gilberto Ramirez (37-0, 25 KOs) secured a sixth round technical knockout victory over previously unbeaten challenger Ghana’s Habib Ahmed (22-1, 17 KOs) on Saturday night at the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas.
The Ghanaian went into the bout with the aim of shocking the champion, but he was overpowered by the hard-hitting Mexican.
The bout was waved off by referee Laurence Cole as his corner threw in the towel with Ahmed under heavy fire.
The sixth round had traveled up to 2:31minutes. It was Ramirez’s first KO since 2014.
The bout was the Mexican’s third defense of his WBO World super middleweight strap meaning he still maintains his bragging rights.
