WBA Super World Cruiser Champ Goulamirian Defends Title
Against Aleksei Egorov On Nov. 19
On Saturday, November 19, 2022, undefeated Parisian, Arsen
“Feroz” Goulamirian will return for the first time in nearly
three years to defend his WBA Super World Cruiserweight
Championship against undefeated #1 contender Aleksei Egorov
at La Palsestre in Le Cannet, France and live on live on
Canal + (7 pm).
A native Armenian, Goulamirian (26-0, 18 KOs) will be making
the second defense of his super championship against
Russia’s Egorov (11-0, 7 KOs) in the 12-round main event of
a night of world-class championship boxing, presented by Y12
The pair had been scheduled to fight last December, however,
the defending champion tested positive for Covid and the
fight was postponed. Thankfully Goulamirian recovered.
The 35-year-old Goulamirian has been preparing for the bout
in Big Bear, California, under the watchful eye of
well-known trainer Abel Sanchez. He won the Interim title in
the 2018, the WBA Gold World belt later that year and was
upgraded to the Super champion in 2019. Goulamirian has
since made successful defenses against Kane Watts (KO 4),
and Constantin Bejenaru (RTD 9).
Inactive himself since 2020, 31-year-old Egorov is a former
Russian amateur champion. In his nearly six-year career, he
has already beaten respectable contenders including Lateef
Kayode (RTD 6), Tommy Oosthuizen (UD 10) and Roman
Golovashchenko (TKO 3).
On the stacked undercard, hard-punching EBU European Super
Middleweight Champion, Kevin “The Phenomenon” Lele Sadjo
(18-0, 16 KOs) from Saint-Maur, Val-de-Marne, France, will
make the first defense of his title in a 12-round battle
against mandatory challenger, Emre Cukur (19-1-1, 3 KOs) of
Munich, Bayern, Germany, in the co-main event.
Also scheduled is a 12-round battle for the vacant EBU
European Super Welterweight Championship between undefeated
23-year-old Milan “Natsuko” Prat (17-0, 14 KOs) of Drancy,
Seine-Saint-Denis, France, and IBF #9-ranked Abass Baraou
(12-1, 8 KOs) of Berlin, Germany, as well as an appearance
by 2016 Olympic Silver medalist and amateur boxing star,
"Virtuoso" Sofiane Oumiha looking for his third consecutive
professional victory against an opponent that is TBA.
“This is the most significant event in France in decades.
The best domestic fighters are fighting in career defining
fights versus their mandatory challengers,” said Yohan Zaoui,
Chairman of Y12 Boxing. “France must once again establish
its place among one of the best nations in boxing and this
event is a step in that direction. On November 19, boxing
fans from around the world will see the reemergence of
boxing in this great nation.”
