Unbeaten 2012 Olympian Jose Ramirez (18-0, 13 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over Issouf Kinda (18-3, 7 KOs) on Friday night at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California. In round two, Kinda hit local hero Ramirez with a left hook, staggering Ramirez and causing his glove to touch the canvas. In round six Ramirez came out strong knocking down Kinda. Kinda got up but Ramirez was all over him with a barrage of punches causing the referee to stop the fight. The time was 0:58. The attendance in Fresno was 13,700, the largest for a Jose Ramirez fight to date.
Unbeaten local super welterweight Danny Valdivia (13-0, 9 KOs) scored an entertaining eight round unanimous decision over game journeyman Aaron Garcia (12-7-1, 10 KOs), Valdivia dropped Garcia in round two, but Garcia came back to floor Valdivia in round three. Valdivia knocked down Garcia again in the eighth round to cap a 77-71, 77-71, 78-70 win.

MAYWEATHER-McGREGOR WILL NOT HAPPEN

 

Mayweather Promotions CEO:
Mayweather-McGregor boxing match won't happen

 

The CEO of Mayweather Promotions says that a fight between UFC champion Conor McGregor and retired boxing world champion Floyd Mayweather will never happen. McGregor was issued a boxing license in California this week after giving up his featherweight title following his lightweight title win in November. McGregor has said he wants at least $100 million for a potential bout with Mayweather. Mayweather Promotions CEO Leonard Ellerbe said that a matchup between Mayweather and McGregor will never happen, and that McGregor getting a boxing license is a "game" and a "calculated effort to gain more fans." "What McGregor is attempting to do is take a page out of Floyd's book from the marketing and promotional side by using his name," Ellerbe said to ESPN. "The quickest way to become famous is to align yourself with another famous person, and he's done a good job of that." 

"The brass [from WME-IMG] who recently purchased the UFC [for $4 billion earlier this year] are very smart people and they would never—and put this in bold caps—let him step into a boxing ring with Floyd Mayweather because everyone knows what the outcome would be," Ellerbe said. "He would get his ass beat from pillar to post."
