On March 30th, at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, USA, WBA Super World cruiserweight champion (up to 90.7 kg) Arsen Goulamirian (27-1, 19 KOs) made another title defense against Mexican Gilberto Ramirez (46-1, 30 KOs).

The contest concluded with Ramirez securing a unanimous decision victory. The judges scored the fight unanimously, 118-110 across the board.
