Maurice Hooker (26-0-3, 17 KOs) vs. Jose Ramirez (24-0, 16 KOs) - 12 rounds, WBC & WBO world junior welterweight titles; Tevin Farmer (29-4-1, 6 KOs) vs. Guillaume Frenois (46-1-1, 12 KOs) - 12 rounds, IBF world super featherweight title; Joey Dawejko (19-7-4, 11 KOs) vs. Rodney Hernandez (13-7-2, 4 KOs) - 10 rounds, heavyweight

Hooker vs. Ramirez is a world title unification fight, which I am always in favor of. Both men are undefeated and hence, combined with their respective titles, have a lot to lose. Look for Hooker to try to use his enormous reach to his advantage by keeping Ramirez on the outside, and Ramirez will attempt to get in mid-range where he’s most effective.
