ANDthe mexican fighter Gilberto Ramrez is the obligated challenger for the WBA world belt in light heavyweight and for this reason he gives his option for the venue of the fight against the executioner of Sal ‘Canelo’ Álvarez, the Russian Dmitry Bivol.

“It will be great to fight Bivol in Los Angeles. I think it could be great. If not, maybe we can fight in Vegas,” Ramrez said in an interview with BoxingScene.com.

If he wins the world title, the ‘Zurdo’ will look for his first defense to be on Mexican soil: “That continues to be an objective to fight at home. It’s been a long time since I fought in Mazatlan in 2011. It’s been a long time, eight or nine years since I fought anywhere in Mexico.”

Ramrez goes further and wants the venue to be the stadium of Mazatln FC from Liga MX: “I want to bring a big fight to Mazatlan, put like 30,000 in the new stadium. I would love to have a title fight in my hometown.”
