Local area fighter 'Rocky' Ramos triumphs
July 16, 2014In a hotly contested contest, Fallbrook resident and professional boxer Roque "Rocky" Ramos defeated Jesus Sandoval of Redwood City, California in Indio at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino last weekend.
Rocky, a feather weight at 127 pounds, has been undefeated in his five professional bouts. Ramos scored a unanimous decision over his very tough opponent Jesus Sandoval. Switching to southpaw frequently during the fight, Sandoval made it very hard for Ramos to adjust. Rocky was constant in his pursuit of Sandoval about the ring, pressuring him and clearly being the aggressor, landing several blows that rocked Sandoval. Jesus, not to be out done, fired back with some very effective blows and began to settle down after both fighters suffered a cut from an accidental head butt.
Landing some very effective and thunderous right hands, Ramos was able to score heavily in each of the rounds thus garnering an unquestionable unanimous decision over his opponent.
Rocky has one of the few female trainers in boxing, Kalina Fernandez, who is a former boxer herself. Similar to Ann Wolf and James Kirkland, they hit on all cylinders and are one heck of a team. They met when Rocky was 12 years old and have been together ever since. Rocky was the most decorated amateur boxer in San Diego Boxing history. He became a professional fighter in 2012 and has been going strong ever since.
Boxing fans will be hearing a lot about this 127-pounder as he pursues his career in professional boxing.
