Alex "The Bronx Bomber" Ramos has over 30 years experience in the sport of boxing, starting his career training at the age of 11 years old in the Bronx, New York. He was one of the most celebrated amateur boxers ever to come from the State of New York, winning 4 New York Golden Gloves, PAL National Champion, Empire State Games Champion, Junior Olympic Gold Medallist, AAU National Champion and member of the USA Boxing Team from 1978-1980. When President Carter boycotted the 1980 Moscow Olympics, Ramos turned pro, signing with Top Rank at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan. Alex became the 1984 USBA Middleweight Champion and the 1986 California Middleweight Champion. His last professional fight was in 1995 against Jorge Castro in Argentina for the WBA Middleweight Championship.

Alex Ramos founded the Retired Boxers Foundation (RBF) shortly after his career in boxing ended, officially incorporating the organization in 2000. The Mission of the RBF is to assist retired professional boxers in the transition from their glorious days in the ring to a dignified retirement. Professional boxing is the only sport that does not provide a retirement plan or pension for the athletes, and too many professional boxers end their careers unprepared for the life after boxing. The organization is entering its fifth year, making a major impact on the sport of boxing and acquiring the respect of many important people throughout the world. The Board of Directors and Honorary Board include Bo Derek, James Carville, Ron Shelton, Lolita Davidovich, Frank Stallone, Bill Farley (Playboy), Colonel Bob Sheridan and others.
