Jose Ramirez retained the WBC and WBO world titles in a close battle against Viktor Postol on Saturday night.
Ramirez was made strategically uncomfortable throughout the fight due to Postol’s tactical boxing style.
Although neither men ever truly took control of the action.
However, it was Ramirez who ultimately got the majority decision win by the scores of 114-114, 115-113 and 116-112 at the MGM Grand Conference Center in Las Vegas.
With the victory, Ramirez kept alive his chances of fully unifying the 140-pound division against Josh Taylor, who holds the WBA and IBF world titles.
