At 16-4 Bone, 28 has fought some quality appoints in Miguel Vazquez, Shawn Porter and Chris Algieri. After suffering losses in his last three fights to the aforementioned Miguel Vazquez (UD), Chris Algieri (UD) and Shawn Porter (5th Round KO), Bone enters the ring hungry to get back to his winning ways. Standing at at only 5’9 and weighing 140 pounds, eight of his sixteen wins have come by way of knockout. Bone is the more experienced fighter and possesses solid power, however, he’s stepping into the ring against an undefeated Eddie Ramirez (16-0, 11 KOs), who has been quickly gaining the attention of his fellow super lightweight competitors.

“A year from now, I see myself fighting guys in the top 10. I want whoever is on that list,” Ramirez said. “I believe I will have progressed as a fighter who people know about and who has the skill to fight for a world title.

A victory for Eddie Ramirez tonight would be another big step towards getting his title shot. However, Erick Bone is walking into the ring with a lot of confidence given his experience and record, so getting a victory tonight will be no easy task for Ramirez.

“I’ve been in the ring with some really great guys, so coming into this fight I have a leg up,” Bone said. “My opponent is the underdog and I don’t think he’s been in the ring with a fighter like me.”

At the very least, this should be an entertaining rumble. Both fighters step into the ring with a lot of purpose. Tune in tonight on FS1 to see who prevails.
