Ramponi explained: “I have been practicing boxing for about eight years, always with the same people. Matías Lucero, who is my teacher, and Antonio Martínez, and we already had the idea of fighting as a professional boxer for some time, but for one reason or another, things didn’t happen to fight. I managed to fight two as an amateur and since I had kick boxing fights, they gave me the chance to get my boxing license a little faster”.
His professional boxing debut
“At the beginning of this year we began to process it, I did all the medical studies, it was approved by the Argentine Boxing Federation (FAB) and they sent me the license. On May 15 I was able to make my debut as a professional boxer, during an event without an audience held in Eugenio Bustos, San Carlos”indicated.

It was his third fight as a professional, four rounds in the welterweight division. I ended up winning the match on points on a split decision. I felt very comfortable, I enjoyed it a lot, because after the pandemic, being able to compete again after practically a year and a half, it was very satisfying and even more so, taking the victory”.
