Ready for Glory: Fighters Line Up for High-Stakes Battles at Barclays Center

Tonight, Barclays Center is set to host a series of captivating undercard battles alongside the much-anticipated main event, Devin Haney vs. Ryan Garcia. Amid the surrounding hype, athletes like Charles Conwell, Pierre Hubert Dibombe, and the pair John Ramirez and David Jimenez are gearing up to prove their mettle in their respective fights, drawing both fan and media attention.

Conwell’s Golden Debut

In a strategic career move, Charles Conwell makes his debut under the Golden Boy Promotions banner. The undefeated super welterweight, boasting an impressive 18-0 record with 13 KOs, is set to challenge Nathaniel Gallimore, who holds a record of 22 wins, 7 losses, and 1 draw. Conwell expressed his enthusiasm about the opportunity, crediting the guidance of boxing legends Oscar De La Hoya and Bernard Hopkins for his preparedness and resolve to reinvigorate his career after a two-year hiatus.

Dibombe’s Defiant Stand

On the same card, Pierre Hubert Dibombe, a 32-year-old unbeaten French fighter with a record of 22-0-1, faces a formidable opponent in Uzbek powerhouse Bektemir Melikuziev, who has 13 wins, 1 loss, and a reputation for knocking out opponents. Despite being the underdog, Dibombe remains confident, ready to showcase his skills and seize the WBA Inter-Continental 168lbs title from Melikuziev, an opportunity he believes will highlight his career.

Ramirez and Jimenez’s Heated Exchange

Adding to the evening’s drama, John “Scrappy” Ramirez and David Jimenez are set to contest the WBA Interim super flyweight title. Both fighters displayed intense competitiveness during the weigh-in, with Ramirez, a Californian with a 13-0 record, playfully threatening to “roll up and spark” his opponent, Jimenez, who has a 15-1 record. The verbal sparring continued with Jimenez dismissing Ramirez’s achievements and vowing to demonstrate his superior skill set in the ring.


As the boxing world turns its eyes towards these fighters, each is poised not only to win their bouts but to captivate the audience with their skill and determination. With careers potentially redefined tonight, Barclays Center is the stage for what could be a memorable chapter in boxing history.
