Fermín Ramírez Zermeño took charge of two matches in the 1983 u20 World Cup. One was a quarter-finals.
There is a story about Fermin Ramirez hitting player Nery Castillo a day after Castillo had told him "'Qué se podía esperar de un mexicano cobarde como vos'." (what else to expect from a Mexican coward like you).
Putting the words "Mexican" and "coward" in one sentence was too much for Ramirez who hit him with a left while shaking the player's hand. Castillo, half Mexican was born in Uruguay.
We don't know exactly how to place this story since Castillo wasn't even born when Ramirez started as a FIFA referee.
- Fermin Ramirez was also active in Spain as a referee.
- He used to work for a bank for 30 years, but when he retired he "burned his suits and ties".
