The mandatory bout for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Super Cruiserweight Championship between the champion Arsen Goulamirian and his challenger Aleksei Egorov has been confirmed for November 19 at La Palestre Arena, in Le Cannet, France.
Goulamirian will return to the ring to defend his 200 lbs. belt and the Armenian-born, French citizen will have the opportunity to be at home and in front of his fans for this great fight.
The 35 year old puncher had not been able to step into the ring due to various postponments of the fights, but now he is ready to show his strength once again.
Egorov earned the right by being the Gold champion of the division and the best available contender to face the champion. The undefeated fighter had been waiting years for such an occasion and now has the opportunity to go to the monarch’s house and take the black and gold crown from him.
Both Goulamirian and Egorov are undefeated in their professional careers. The former has 26 fights won, with 18 knockouts, while the latter has knocked out 7 of the 11 opponents he has beaten.
