ABOUT ROCKY

Rocky Ramirez was born in Orange, California and raised in Riverside California for most of his young life. His father was a former professional boxer, so growing up, at a young age, Rocky was tremendously involved in boxing. There was a lot of gang activity in the area he grew up in, so to keep him off the streets and out of trouble, his father put him in football at the early age of 7. Then to improve his family’s life, his family moved to New Mexico. Once in NM, Rocky wrestled and played football in Junior High and High School. He then attended NMSU to pursue a Business Degree after High School but decided to serve his country after a couple years. Left college and joined the United States Air Force. There he received his training and became a firefighter. Once his duties were completed, Rocky earned his NM EMT license and became a firefighter for the City of Raton and served Raton for 5 years, becoming a Captain before leaving that profession. While a firefighter in Raton, Rocky studied several martial arts, as kajukenbo and hakkarayujitsu. Also during his time in Raton, he became a power lifter for a organization called NASA(Natural Athletic Strength Association). Rocky won numerous state titles in New Mexico and Colorado in the bench category for several years.

Due to the toll of injuries this sport had on Rocky. He decided to pursue his true passion, which had always been fighting. In Raton, he had several amateur fights and racked up a amateur record of 4-4.But due to not having the proper trainers and teammates, In 2006 Rocky decided to move to Albuquerque, NM and pursue a Professional Fighting career and Join Jacksons MMA and Winkel johns Kickboxing. His First couple years were filled with many Boxing, Kickboxing smokers and No Gi grappling tournament which he did very well in. After a couple years, Rocky began his journey as a professional fighter and has a winning professional record of 6-4-0 since 2008.
