Live Boxing Results Tonight: Goulamirian vs. Ramirez

By Michael Collins - 03/31/2024 - Comments

Gilberto ‘Zurdo’ Ramirez (46-1, 30 KOs) defeated WBA cruiserweight champion Arsen Goulamirian (27-1, 18 KOs) by a wide 12 round unanimous decision in their headliner fight on Saturday night at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California.

Ramirez was too skilled, too busy and far too talented for the slow 36-year-old Goulamirian tonight. The former WBO super middleweight champion Ramirez had little trouble handling the heavy shots from Goulamirian, so he took the punches and kept throwing his own.

The scores were 118-110, 118-110, and 118-110.

“I want to become undisputed cruiserweight champion,” said Ramirez after the fight

It’s going to be tough for Ramirez to handle the power, speed and ability of Jai Opetaia if he meets up with him. That guy is on another level to Goulamirian, and it’s going to take a lot more from Ramirez, from what we saw tonight, for him to win against a fighter like that.

Welterweight contender Alexis Rocha (24-2, 16 KOs) kept his career alive with a 7th round TKO win over Fredrick Lawson (30-5, 22 KOs). Rocha pummeled Lawson with nonstop shots in the final seconds of the seventh. After the round ended, Lawson’s corner chose not to have him come out for the eighth.

Rocha knocked Lawson down in the sixth round with a right hand that sent him into the ropes, hurting him badly and then landing a storm of shots. Just when Lawson was close to being stopped, he came back with some nice shots in the final seconds to finish strong.

In the seventh, Rocha unloaded with a lot of hard punches, one after another, and overwhelming Lawson. It was a surprise that Lawson made it out of the round, but his corner decided that the fight needed to be stopped.

Both fighters were coming off knockout losses coming into tonight’s fight.
