Jose Ramos (born 1965), aka Pepe Ramos, is a Puerto Rican boxing manager.

Jose Ramos surfaced in the 1990s, when he became famous in the boxing world as Felix Trinidad's career took off. Ramos, Trinidad and Felix Trinidad Sr. were united by a contract, and, in Ramos and Trinidad Jr.'s case, by friendship.

Ramos became vital to Trinidad's first era as a boxer, becoming an important link between the Trinidads and promoter Don King. Ramos helped work deals for Felix Trinidad and Oscar de la Hoya, Pernell Whitaker, Yori Boy Campas, Hector Camacho and David Reid, among others. Ramos was in New York, New York, when the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks occurred; Trinidad was scheduled to fight Bernard Hopkins at the Madison Square Garden on September 15 of that year. The fight took place on September 29 instead, and Trinidad lost by a twelfth round knockout.
