San Antonio’s Casey Ramos puts on a great performance Thursday night at the Texas Motor Speedway Club in beautiful Ft. Worth, TX. Promoted by Ring Magazines 1999 Fighter of the year, Paulie Ayala. Ramos headlined the five bout card against Angel Rodriguez of Houston, TX.
Ramos started the fight with a thundering right hand lead in the first minutes of round one that sent his opponent helplessly to the canvas and would set the tone for the rest of the fight. Casey was able to show good head movement and body work through out this eight round fight and didn’t seem to lose a round as he controlled the pace of the fight with his hard hooks and right hand leads. Rodriguez could night match the skill and power of Ramos but showed plenty of Mexican Machismo as there was no quit in him despite the onslaught of solid punching done by the San Antonio fighter. Ramos ended the night with a unanimous decision and improved his unblemished record to 11-0.
Former WBO Inter-Continental heavyweight Champion Kirk Johnson was the co-main event attraction as he made his comeback after more than a four year layoff against Douglas Robertson of Longview, TX. Johnson made this a very short night as he TKO’d his out-classed opponent in 1:45 of round number one. It will be very interesting to see if Johnson can make such a mark as he once did in the heavyweight division as he starts his 2010 return.
