Gilberto Ramirez beats Arsen Goulamirian to win WBA (Super) cruiserweight title

Mexico's Gilberto Ramirez claimed the WBA (Super) cruiserweight title with a unanimous points victory over France's Arsen Goulamirian in California.

It was the first defeat of Armenia-born Goulamirian's 28-fight career in his fifth defence of the title.

All three judges at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood scored the fight 118-110 in Ramirez's favour.

Victory extended the former world super-middleweight champion's record to 46 wins and one defeat.

Ramirez's only loss came in a WBA world light-heavyweight title bout against Russia's Dmitry Bivol in May 2022.

Goulamirian held the cruiserweight belt since 2018 but had not fought since November 2022.
