Former lightweight champion Jose Carlos Ramirez (26-1) faces Puerto Rico's Jose "Sniper" Pedraza in Fresno, California. American Ramirez held the WBC and WBO belts before suffering his only professional loss to date against Scotland's Josh Taylor last May.
Can Ramirez defeat former two-weight world champion Pedraza, who has won titles at super featherweight and lightweight, and recapture the sort of form that saw him become world champion in 2018?
"I feel hungry," Ramirez told reporters. "I feel like the Jose Ramirez that got his opportunity in 2018 and became world champion for the first time. I just want it back.
"The biggest thing that I learned from myself when I faced Josh Taylor is that the only person that can defeat me is my own self. I feel like that's a fight that I lost. I don't believe he beat me because he's the better fighter."
