Amateur fighter Ramiro ‘Reme’ Hernandez makes his professional debut this Saturday against lightweight prospect Branden Cluever (2-2, 2 KOs) at the Black Bear Casino in Carlton, Minnesota.
Hernandez began fighting at age 15 earning the nickname “La Balla”, which means “the bullet” from his father. With over 50 amateur fights, the Cleveland, Ohio native describes himself as a pressure fighter.
“I’m a small guy but I hit hard”, said Hernandez.
The 25 year old plans on using his jab to deliver a win Saturday night. His strategy is ‘breaking him down from the body up.”
In reference to his style of fight, Hernandez likes to immolate Juan Manuel Marquez. “He’s not the fastest, strongest or biggest fighter but he always finds a way to win”, stated Hernandez. “He’s technical and thinks while he’s fighting.”
Hernandez is a humbled fighter with a big heart who is motivated by many fighters in the Cleveland area. “Guys from Cleveland like Shawn Porter inspire me because he’s the IBF world champion”, said Hernandez. “That’s a lot of motivation for me coming from Cleveland and making it all the way to the top.”
