NABF Super middleweight Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (30-0, 24 KOs) who's ranked at number two by the WBC, stopped resilient veteran Fulgencio Zuniga (27-10, 24 KOs) in round eight, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
Ramirez who's filled out considerably and looks enormous for a super middleweight, was sharp and precise, winning every round before getting the stoppage.
Sherry Cordova and family put on a good club show for the boxing fans in Pueblo, who came out to support their local champion and inspiration, Chantel ‘Gorgeous Babe’ Cordova.

The dictionary defines “Character” as the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual. Personally, I like to gauge the character of an individual on how the individual treats people they really do not need.
Here is our NABF Champ Karl Dargon, WBC Champ Alicia Ashley and a young friend at Childrens National Health System in Washington, DC. This wonderful, visitation program was shared with us by Hope for Henry Foundation. Hope for Henry was inspired by young Henry Strongin who asked his parents for boxing gloves and a heavy bag in between his treatments. Karl was a KO! He is a spokeperson for the sport we can be proud of.
