Gilberto Ramirez Eyes Cruiserweight Glory Against Arsen Goulamirian

Gilberto Ramirez (45-1, 30 KOs) is gearing up to challenge the undefeated WBA cruiserweight champion Arsen Goulamirian (21-0, 14 KOs) this Saturday at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California. Ramirez, a former super middleweight titleholder, is anticipating an intense battle as he steps into the ring with the formidable Goulamirian.

Acknowledging the challenge ahead, Ramirez praised Goulamirian, recognizing him as a worthy opponent.

"He is the champ for a reason," Ramirez said. "Arsen is the warrior with Thor-like strength who can also box. He’s going to be a huge challenge, which is why I wanted this fight. I’ve been working on my skills and my strength to overcome Arsen."

The bout, scheduled for 12 rounds, will serve as the headline event of a card promoted by Golden Boy Promotions, in association with Y12 Boxing, and will be streamed live on DAZN.

Ramirez, also known as "Zurdo," made history as the first Mexican-born boxer to capture a super middleweight world title. Now, at 32 years old, he is aiming to replicate that success in the cruiserweight division against Goulamirian, an Armenian-born champion who resides in France and trains in Big Bear, California.

Reflecting on his transition to the cruiserweight division, Ramirez expressed confidence in his decision.

"I feel comfortable at this weight," he explained. "Naturally, as I got older, it was tougher to make weight, and now everything seems to be easier. Like I always say, there’s no better teacher than experience in this life. I’m not training differently as a cruiserweight. I’m always working on the basics of boxing. Going into a higher division, one of the main things is that I’m able to lift heavy and not worry about gaining muscle mass."
