MAURICE "MIGHTY MO" HOOKER FIGHTING IN TEXAS FOR WBC BELT AND TO DEFEND HIS WBO BELT AGAIN


Maurice "MightyMo" Hooker (26-0 17 KO's), Dallas, Texas' WBO Junior Welterweight champion of the world will now have his chance to get another belt, this time it is the coveted "green belt" of the WBC.

Finally, Jose Ramirez (24-0, 16 KO's) from Avenal, California has now stepped up to the plate to fight Hooker in a unification fight and this time it is in Texas, the home state of the champion "Mighty Mo."

The fight will be televised live on DAZN with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom in conjunction with Bob Arum and Top Rank Boxing, which shows that all the excuses that other fighters use are just bogus.

This fight will put the winner on a much bigger stage as the number one junior welterweight in the division.

The fight will be held on July 27, 2019 at the College Park Stadium in Arlington, Texas where the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers hold office, and it is just west of Dallas, Texas, the home of Mighty Mo.

This will be Hooker's first defense of his title in his hometown after winning the title against Terry Flanagan in England, and then defending it against Alex Saucedo in his hometown of Oklahoma City and after defeating Mikell Lespierre in March of 2019.

Similar to the best laid plans that Alex Saucedo had in his hometown, the same results will happen to Ramirez when he comes to Texas, when he meets Hooker, the best in the 140 pound division.

Hooker has said he wants all the belts and come June 27, 2019 at UTA-Arlington he will have half 1/2 of the junior welterweight championship titles. This will be the biggest fight of his life as he moves forward to take over the division just like his good friend Terence Crawford.

INTHERING.net caught up with Mighty Mo in New York city after his second press conference for his upcoming fight and his attendance to the GGG v Rolls fight on DAZN.

When asked about the fight he said had already started training two weeks ago for the fight and that this time he will not have any issues with weight and that there will be two weigh-ins before the final weigh-in.

He is glad Ramirez has stepped up to the plate to unify these two belts and that he knows knows his opponent will be just as ready as he is and that it's going to be a great fight for the top 140 fighters in the division.

This will be Hooker's third defense of his WBO title and he went on to say "I am very excited that this fight is in my hometown of Dallas, Texas and I am ready to put on a show for all my fans in Dallas."
