Viva Los Dos Carlos! Ramirez, Servania, and Beltran Win Key WBC Bouts

By Robert Brizel, Head Real Combat Media Boxing Correspondent

Three key World Boxing Council titular bouts took place on Sunday, February 10, 2019.

24-0 Jose Carlos Ramirez of Avenal, California, retained his WBC World Super Lightweight title by 12 round majority decision over 30-1 southpaw Jose Zepeda of La Puente, California. Scoring: 116-112, 115-113 for Castro. Third card had it 114-114 a draw.

22-0 Carlos Castro of Phoenix, Arizona, won the vacant WBC Continental Americas Super Bantamweight title by 10 round unanimous decision over Genesis Servania, a Filipino now fighting out of Kanazawa Ishikawa, Japan. One judge scored it 100-90 for Castro.

36-8-1 ring veteran Raymundo Beltran viciously knocked out a game 19-0 Hiroki Okada of Tokyo, Japan, to win the vacant WBC Continental Americas and the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Super Lightweight titles. Beltran knocked Okada down in the first round, and twice in ninth. Attacking Okada had aging Beltran in trouble on the ropes at one point. Both fighters apparently went down in the second round, though no knockdowns were called. Down and out Okada’s night was ended by referee Jack Reiss at 2:09 of the ninth round.
