TR on ESPN Results – Top Rank Boxing was in Corpus Christi, Texas and on ESPN Saturday night delivering two world title fights to continue their 2018 schedule.
Defending IBF world super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas delivered a solid performance in stopping Mexico’s Israel Gonzalez in the tenth round. Ancajas dropped the tough Mexican in the opening round on his way to the stoppage in the tenth. Look for the “next Manny Pacquaio” rhetoric to heat up even more.
WBO world super middleweight champion Gilberto “El Zurdo” Ramirez made short work of Habib Ahmed of Ghana, getting the stoppage in round six.
ESPN unleashed a different production team anchored by Joe Tessitore. He was joined by 2x world champion Timothy Bradley and author Mark Kriegel and the team delivered several solid video packages presenting back stories. Teddy Atlas is no longer part of ESPN’s ringside announcing crew.
