Casey "The Wizard" Ramos

At the age of 27, Casey is a nine-year pro – he made his debut at 17. A rising young prospect at 130 pounds, he was an amateur standout before his debut.

He stayed active in the ring with three fights in 2014, two in 2015, and three in 2016, has made excellent progress, and advanced to 10-round status.

In his last fight on April 28 in Burbank, California, he won a 10-round unanimous decision against former super featherweight world title challenger Miguel Beltran Jr.

Boxingscene.com’s Francisco Salazar reported from ringside [excerpts]: Casey Ramos bounced back from a defeat in his last bout, winning a hard-fought unanimous decision over 10 rounds over Miguel Beltran.

Beltran was the busier fighter of the two during the first half of the fight. The action opened up during the middle rounds, with both fighters providing entertaining exchanges for those in attendance at Marriott Convention Center.

Having to deal with a cut since round five, Ramos increased his punch output during the final three rounds of the fight, scoring with left hooks and the occasional right hand to the head of Beltran.

Scores were 96-94, 96-94, and 97-93 in favor of Ramos. [End Salazar item]

Casey’s only loss came in his previous fight on November 4 in Las Vegas, a ninth-round technical decision against Andy Vences. It was a good, close fight between two talented, upcoming prospects, but was stopped on cuts.

In addition to his boxing career, Casey also has interests outside of the ring.

In an interview with Francisco Salazar, Casey said [The Ring, July 15, 2016 – excerpts]: “My goals have been to be a very good boxer and a ‘suit.’ I want to be a businessman and a politician.

“My goal is to help the young, blue-collar working class in my neighborhood. I have a big following in my neighborhood, and I also want to make a name for myself to help others.” [End Salazar item]

Manager-uncle John Ramos said, “Casey’s an awesome, humble kid with great character, and he has an entertaining style. He’s well-rounded in the ring, and he’s willing to fight anybody. I think he’s on the right path to become a world champion.”

Casey said, “I’m pretty versatile in the ring – I can do a lot – but I’d say I’m mostly a boxer-puncher. We’re not going to underestimate anybody – we’re going to go in there as if he’s the best in the world. I’m not too much of a bragger or a boaster.

“They gave me that nickname at my first state tournament when I was eight years old. My whole team, we all made it to state and everybody was losing. One of my coaches was like, ‘You know what, Casey? You’ve got to pull a hat-trick, work some magic, do something.’ I tried my best and I won the fight. I won the state title and ever since then, my coach has been calling me ‘The Wizard.’ ”
