Jose Ramirez vs Viktor Postol – where and when
This junior welterweight clash takes place at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 29. The duo are expected to enter start their ring walk at around 10pm ET / 7pm PT and the only place you can watch it is ESPN+ tonight.
It’s now over a year since Ramirez last stepped in the ring – a convincing sixth-round TKO of Maurice Hooker that saw him crowned as unified world champ last July.
While there are concerns of rustiness following his 13-month layoff, Ramirez, 28, has the motivating dangling carrot of a full unification bout against fellow titlist Josh Taylor, who holds the WBA/IBF titles, should he defend his belts successfully tonight.
Postol has had an even longer hiatus, having been the mandatory contender since defeating Mohamed Mimoune via unanimous decision in his last visit to the ring all the way back in April last year.
The Ukrainian is a former WBC world super lightweight champion, and has lost just twice in his 33-fight career. While his stock may have fallen after his loss to reigning IBF/ WBA super lightweight champion Josh Taylor, Postol’s height and reach advantage makes him a far more dangerous opponent than his underdog billing suggests.
