In the Stephen Fulton-Naoya Inoue junior featherweight title fight, Robeisy Ramirez is undecided on who will prevail.

As a co-feature on the evening, Satoshi Shimizu (11-1, 10KOs) will defend his WBO featherweight title, he is surprisingly unbothered by the matchup itself. As a result of his pound-for-pound status, the 29-year-old Cuban southpaw has no opinion on the pound-for-pound battle.

“I do not think either one is the favorite,” Ramirez told “It will be a very competitive fight between two great fighters. Inoue’s career trajectory has been admirable. Stephen Fulton is a fighter of very high skill level. Due to the fact that I am more familiar with Inoue since we both fight for Top Rank, I lean towards him. From what I know, this is a very close fight.

It’s going to be an amazing fight between two of the best fighters in the world, but they’re not at my weight and they’re not fighting for something I want. I’m focused on Satoshi Shimizu.”

In Japan, both fights will air live on Lenimo, while in the United States, they will air on ESPN+.

Whenever he fights, Ramirez (12-1, 7KOs) puts all of his energy into his own fight to the point of disregard for the rest of the show. It’s quite the statement considering his past bouts have shared shows with some of the biggest fights in recent years.

The rubber match he fought on the undercard of Tyson Fury’s off-the-canvas knockout of Deontay Wilder was hailed by several outlets as the Fight of the Year 2021. As part of Taylor’s points win over Jose Ramirez to unify the junior welterweight division in February, Ramirez supported Taylor when he won a disputed decision over England’s Jack Catterall.

Despite his own schedule, the two-time Olympic gold medalist and reigning featherweight champion follows the sport closely.

There is no disrespect to the main event. I know fans are anticipating that fight. But it was the same when I fought in Glasgow and everyone was focused on Josh Taylor and Jack Catterall.

“That fight led to me becoming a contender for the title I have today. Now I have to defend that title, so I cannot view this show as a fan. This trip is for business. What I have to do is defeat Shimizu and defend my title.”

Inoue (24-0, 21KOs) is viewed as a +360 favorite to become a four-division champion by bet365 sportsbook, while Philly’s Fulton (21-0, 8KOs) is a +260 underdog.

Ramirez is a – favorite to defend the WBO featherweight title he won on April 1 in a unanimous decision over Isaac Dogboe, while Shimizu is a + underdog.
