Here are the betting odds from online sportsbook (full review here).

  • Eduardo Ramirez +215
  • Mark Magsayo -275

My Pick

The 28-year-old Magsayo, who boxes out of Valencia, California, carries around a mark of 25-2 with 17 Ko’s and has boxed 158 rounds since making his pro debut in 2013. He has better-than-average power in his fists as 68 per cent of his wins have been by stoppage, but just three of his last six have. Magsayo stands 5-feet-6-inches tall with a wingspan of 68 inches and is usually an exciting fighter thanks to his aggressive style and his power. His biggest wins so far have been over Gary Russell Jr, Julio Ceja, Yardley Cruz, Chris Avalos and Pablo Cruz.

He won the WBC Featherweight Title with his unanimous decision over Russell in January, 2022, but lost it six months later in his first defence to Rey Vargas by split decision even though he had Vargas down in the ninth round. Magsayo lost his second straight fight in March, 2023 when Brandon Figueroa beat him by a wide unanimous decision for the WBC Interim Featherweight Belt with Magsayo having a point deducted in the eighth and 11th rounds for holding.

Since turning pro he’s also captured the IBF Youth Featherweight Title in 2015, the WBO Youth Featherweight Title in 2016, the WBO International Featherweight Title in 2016 and the WBC Asian Boxing Council Featherweight Belt. He also had a successful amateur career by earning gold medals at the 2010 Mayor Jonas Cortes Cup, the 2012 Bantamweight (Junior Division) at the PLDT-ABAP National Boxing Championships. Magsayo has been dropped a few times as a pro though, so he may not have the best of chins. However, that’s also part of what makes him such a fan-friendly boxer.

Ramirez is a 31-year-old southpaw with a mark of 28-3-3 with 13 Ko’s and has boxed 208 rounds since making his pro debut in 2010. His losses came at the hands of Lee Selby by unanimous decision in 2017 in a shot at the IBF Featherweight Title but he also lost his chance at taking the belt by coming in overweight on the scales. He then lost a 12-round unanimous decision to Cludio Marrero in 2019 and was stopped by Isaac Cruz in two rounds in 2022 in a shot at the WBC Silver Lightweight Title.

The three draws on his record were against Mario Munoz over four rounds in 2011, eight rounds with Jose Velarde in 2013 and over 10 rounds with Leduan Barthelemyin 2017. He also has a no-contest on his record against Saul Hermosillo in 2014. Ramirez measures 5-feet-6-inches tall with a 70-inch reach which gives him a two-inch edge in reach over Magsayo. He doesn’t possess much in the way of power though as just 46.4 per cent of his wins have been by stoppage, but these include six of his last eight victories.

His biggest wins have been over Luis Melendez, Miguel Marriaga, Miguel Flores, Isaac Avelar, Brayan De Gracia and Rafael Reyes. As a pro, Ramirez captured the vacant WBA Fedecentro Super Bantamweight Title in 2015; the vacant WBC Continental Americas Featherweight Belt in 2020 and the Interim WBA Featherweight Title in 2021 when he stopped Isaac Avelar in the third round. This will be Ramirez’s first fight at the 126 lb featherweight limit since that win over Avelar as his last four fights have been at super featherweight or lightweight.


This is a pretty even matchup that could go either way as both boxers are solid pros with plenty of experience. Magsayo has greater power but it hasn’t been too evident lately and he’s lost two of his last three fights. Albeit to world-class opponents in Brandon Figueroa and Rey Vargas. However, if both boxers are at their very best, I’d give the edge to Magsayo as he’s faced tougher overall opposition and I am also considering his power.

Magsayo has greater experience and power.

Play: Magsayo -275 @
