Nicaraguan contender Ramiro Blanco has only one thing in mind when he challenges World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Featherweight Champion Patrick Kinigamazi on Friday June 1 in Geneva, Switzerland. To return home as the new Champion!

Guided by former two-time WBA World Champion Rosendo Alvarez, who ruled at Strawweight and Light Flyweight between 1995 and 2004, 22-year-old Blanco has compiled a 17-3-2 (10) record since turning professional four years ago.

In July of 2016 he captured a WBA regional title, and he is now determined to bring his career to the next level and follow in the footsteps of his famous manager by winning a world championship, saying:

This is a major opportunity for me. Kinigamazi is a good fighter, and he is very awkward and difficult to beat, but I believe in myself and I will return to Nicaragua with the WBF world championship belt. There is no two ways about it, I will be victorious!”

Patrick Kinigamazi, 28-2 (4), won the WBF World Super Featherweight title with a unanimous decision over Argentinian Juan Jose Farias last June. He retained the title in November, stopping Robert Laki from Hungary in five rounds.

Those accomplishments earned Kinigamazi and his coach, Giorgio Costantino, WBF Fighter of the Year and Trainer of the Year awards, and the 35-year-old has no intentions of letting the young Nicaraguan pup spoil the party.

Born in Rwanda but fighting out of Switzerland his entire professional career, Kinigamazi´s second WBF world title-defense will headline a show promoted by Tundra Promotions at the Salle bout du Monde in Geneva.
