Arsen Goulamirian is a French professional boxer, born on October 4, 1987, in Armenia. He fights in the cruiserweight weight class and currently holds the WBA (Super) cruiserweight title, which he won in 2019.
Goulamirian turned professional in 2011, winning his first 14 fights and the WBA Continental (Europe) cruiserweight title. He went on to win eight more fights, bringing his record to 22-0.
WBA Interim Cruiserweight Champion
In March 2018, Goulamirian fought Ryad Merhy for the vacant Interim WBA cruiserweight title. Goulamirian dominated the fight from the very beginning and stopped Merhy in the eleventh round with a combination of unanswered strikes. Goulamirian became the interim WBA cruiserweight champion.
WBA Super Cruiserweight Champion
After capturing the interim WBA strap, Goulamirian went on to fight Mark Flanagan, winning the fight by a ninth-round technical knockout. This win brought his record to 23-0.
On February 14, 2019, it was announced that Goulamirian would challenge Beibut Shumenov for the WBA Regular cruiserweight title. Goulamirian's and Shumenov's camps could not agree on the terms of the bout, and both of their promoters submitted bids for the fight. Don King's bid of $821,000 won, and the fight was scheduled for three separate dates - April 13, 2019 (in Monaco), April 20, 2019 (in Kazakhstan), and May 13, 2019 (in New York). Unfortunately, all three attempts fell through, and Shumenov later developed respiratory issues.
Accordingly, the WBA stripped Shumenov of his title, and Goulamirian was promoted to WBA Super Cruiserweight champion on July 20, 2019.
Goulamirian's record now stood at an impressive 25-0, with 17 of those wins coming via knockout. In November 2019, he had his first title defense against Kane Watts. Goulamirian won by a fourth-round knockout.
In December 2019, Goulamirian made his second title defense against Constantin Bejenaru. Goulamirian won by a tenth-round stoppage. After nine rounds, the referee called in the ringside doctor due to the amount of damage that Bejenaru suffered up to that point. After consulting with the physician, the referee decided to stop the fight. Goulamirian was leading on all three of the judges' scorecards at that point.
On November 19, 2022, Goulamirian defended his WBA title against Alexey Egorov.
