Dominic tried to get out of trouble, but he cornered himself in a corner and there he received shrapnel, the Mexican’s punches were precise, his best weapon was the hook to the liver, a trademark of Mexican boxing.

The knockout came

In the fourth round, Ramirez continued with his plan, he threw the hook to the liver and the blow entered as a stab to the humanity of Boesel, who put a knee on the ground, the pain was visible on his face. The referee considered that it was enough punishment and decided to stop the fight.
