Former super middleweight champion Gilberto “Zurdo” Ramirez (46-1, 30 KOs) outboxed and frustrated previously unbeaten WBA cruiserweight champion Arsen “Feroz” Goulamirian (27-1, 19 KOs) over twelve rounds on Saturday night at the YouTube Theater in Inglewood, California. Ramirez never let Goulamirian get untracked en route to a 118-110 3x.

Former WBO #1 welterweight contender Alexis “Lex” Rocha (24-2, 16 KOs) returned to stop Fredrick “General Okunka” Lawson (30-5, 22 KOs) with a TKO win. Rocha was credited with a knockdown in round six when he sent Lawson into the ropes. Rocha nearly got a referee’s stoppage in round seven and Lawson’s corner stopped it after the round.

  • Congratulations Zurdo on your win hopefully you stay displinced with your weight and training you hopefully fight the other cruiserweight champions

    • Well, if not he only technically has one more weight class to go, so unless he wants to fight heavys than he better stay where he is at.

    • Bivol did him already, what will fight Arthur for? not the belt but a terrific beating.

  • This was an excellent performance for Zurdo he stayed focused and to the game plan, he is settings himself up properly to compete at Cruiserweight, his speed and movement is there and looked good so smooth.
    Now the power aspect will be tested moving forward can he take a punch from the stronger guys and can he cause hurt with his power to them bigger guys
    Congrats on becoming first Mexican Cruiserweight champ

  • This guy Lawson back for a beat down following his loss to Ortiz and the infamous Tony Weeks stoppage and comments. Actually I guess there was no damage from the Ortiz fight.

  • Good win for Zurdo, boring fight indeed, Zurdo is talented but he doesn’t have the Mexican pedigree and heart of a true Mexican fighter who is a warrior. Get ready for Canelo or Canela to continue to duck and avoid Benavidez and move up in weight to challenge in an all Mexican showdown for the cruiserweight title which will be totally scripted and will go the distance. Fight will be scheduled for September…

    • What exactly is a “true Mexican fighter who is a warrior?” When was the last time you were in a professional boxing ring preparing to fight? Everyone who steps through those ropes is “warrior” because they’re doing wat 99% of people are afraid to do, fight.
