Ramirez, 29, comes from an extensive amateur background, winning gold medals for Cuba in the 2012 London and 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics. He defected from Cuba in 2018 when the national team was holding a training camp in Mexico. Ramirez actually lost his first professional bout to Adan Gonzalez in a four-round split decision. Since then he has run off 11 straight wins. His three most recent victories, against Eric Donovan, Abraham Nova and Jose Matias Romero were all by knockout.
Dogboe, 28, a Briton by way of Ghana, is looking for his second world championship after winning the WBO junior featherweight title in April 2018 against Jessie Magdaleno. He lost that title to Emanuel Navarrete in December 2018 and lost the rematch the following May — the only two losses in his career. Dogboe has won four straight and is looking for another dance at the top of a division.
Ramirez is a -750 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook while Dogboe is the underdog at +475.
