Albert Ramirez Will Face Late Replacement Artur Ziyatdinov on January 25th; Charles Foster Out With an Injury

Press Release:

On January 25th at the Casino de Montréal, Eye of the Tiger's second gala of the year's main event will feature Erik Bazinyan (31-0, 22 KOs) against Billi Facundo Godoy (41-7, 20 KOs) for the NABF and WBA Continental super-middleweight titles. Albert Ramirez (17-0, 15 KOs), originally set to face American Charles Foster in the evening's co-main event, will now step into the ring against former EOTTM protege Artur Ziyatdinov (15-1, 12 KOs). Unfortunately, Foster sustained an injury at the end of his training camp, leading to his withdrawal from the bout.

Albert Ramirez saw a significant rise in his rankings in 2023, securing the 4th spot in the WBA, 6th in the WBC, 7th in the WBO, and breaking into the top 10 in the Ring Magazine rankings. The Venezuelan-born light heavyweight thus faces additional pressure to deliver an impressive performance to the Quebec audience. The southpaw will have an interesting challenge facing a technical boxer with a similar professional record and slightly more imposing stature.

Artur Ziyatdinov has faced southpaws several times in his career and will be on familiar ground on the night of January 25th. His 80% KO ratio, against Ramirez's 88%, highlights power as disturbing as his rival's. Although he secured his 15th career victory in his last fight in June and has not been active since, he remains dangerous. Ziyatdinov aims to step up his game in 2024, and causing an upset would be a significant argument for him to pursue new opportunities
