BigG
Guzman's always going to be one of my favorites...but I think he's getting KTFO against Ramirez..
CyruS
Guzman will have 6 months of ring rust going into this bout against a dangerous champion and more importantly, a deadly knockout artist.


Guzman might have alot to deal with in Ramirez.
ghost13
Guzman stays away and does enough to get the win
Blayde
Im also going with Guzman. He will be able to absorb the punishment.
BigG
I'm surprised that Guzman is the favorite but Blayde and Ghost are right...Guzman can take punishment...I created Guzman and I made him tough us fuck....Maybe I'll switch my pick. laugh.gif
Maxy
I also have to lean towards Guzman. Ramirez has surprised me many times though so it won't be a shock if he crushes the legendary former champion.
ghost13
Ramirez winning wouldn't shock me. But him crushing Guzman would.
BigG
Wow..Ramirez crushed Guzman!
CyruS
Guzman drop his guard going into the later rounds and gets knocked out in the final round in a fight he was winning in a landslide ohmy.gif



Good fight regardless. Ramirez just got the biggest win of his career with a come from behind KO victory.
BigG
Did Ramirez go from can to possibly....the SCARIEST champ in WeBL??? ohmy.gif
CyruS
Guzman wants him in a rematch...... smile_anim.gif
Blayde
Ramirez got some mad power ... Guzman counters and backpedals headhunting and still Ramirez is able to KO him, I wouldve never expected that. But I still think Guzman can win in a rematch.
Maxy
Ramirez continues to defy belief with his performances. Great win.

Ramirez-Guzman II ends in a DRAW!

This epic lightweight rematch ended in a draw although controversially as it appear Guzman thought he had the fight won and coasted from round 9 until the finish. It was a grave mistake as Ramirez banked the last 4 rounds of the fight to end up with a draw and retaining the World Lightweight Championship. Guzman cried foul but it is this reporters belief that you are to fight in the championship rounds and not re-enact Delahoya-Trinidad from 1999. It's up to Ramirez if he wants to make this battle between himself and the former Lightweight King a trilogy.
Blayde
With Ramirez possibly going into retirement Amir Khan (20-2-1) is ready to take over.

Come Sunday Khan and Pietrus will battle it out for the vacant championship if Ramirez doesnt change his mind.

The King is BACK! : Guzman Decisions Ramirez to Win 8th Lightweight Title!




Guzman finally got his revenge over his lone loss to the 2008 Comeback Fighter Of The Year, Jose Luis Ramirez with a UD victory. This bout marks Joan Guzman's 8th reign as World Lightweight Champion, breaking his own record. Guzman stated he will be sticking around to defend the title some more and looks for revenge soon against the man that beat him back to back times and dethroned him from his #1 P4P status last summer, Jay-Jay Judah.
