Goulamirian vs Ramirez Betting Odds

Here are the betting odds from online sportsbook (full review here).

  • Arsen Goulamirian +240
  • Gilberto Ramirez -300

My Pick

Goulamirian is 36 years old, is a French national and fights out of California. He makes the ring walk with a prefect record of 27-0 with 19 Ko’s. He stands 6-feet-1-inch tall with a 73.5-inch reach and has boxed 154 rounds since making his pro debut back in 2011 following his amateur career. As an amateur, he was beaten twice by Oleksandr Usyk and was also beaten by Tervel Pulev. He has good power in his fists with a current knockout ratio of 70.4 per cent and has stopped six of his last seven opponents.

As a pro, Goulamirian won the French Cruiserweight Title in 2016 by stopping David Radeff in five rounds. He captured the WBA Cruiserweight Crown in March, 2018 by stopping Ryad Merhy in the 11th round and has defended it four times. He has also beaten the likes of Ismail Abdoul, Lubos Suda, Mitch Williams, Hamilton Ventura, Mark Flanagan, Kane Watts and Constantin Bejenaru. He’ll be taking a big step up in class this weekend and will be fighting in America for the first time and for just the second time outside of Europe. Goulamirian will also have some ring rust as he hasn’t fought since November, 2022.

The 32-year-old Ramirez is a southpaw who became the first Mexican to capture a world super middleweight title when he beat Arthur Abraham via unanimous decision in 2016 for the WBO Belt. He’ll enter the ring with an impressive record of 45-1 with 30 Ko’s with his lone loss coming to Dmitry Bivol by unanimous decision in November, 2022 in a shot at the WBA Super Light Heavyweight Belt. Ramirez stands close to 6-feet-3-inches tall and has a reach of 75 inches which gives him a 1.5-inch edge in height and reach over Goulamirian. He made his pro debut in 2009 and has 277 rounds in the bank since.

Ramirez possesses quite a bit of power in his fists as 66.7 per cent of his wins have been by stoppage, including five of his past six. He’s a bit of an oddity for such a tall boxer though since he doesn’t always use his height to his advantage. Ramirez often prefers to work his way inside to engage instead of fighting at a safer distance. After beating Abraham, Ramirez defended his title against Max Bursak and Jesse Hart by unanimous decisions and stopped Habib Ahmed in six rounds.

He then beat Roamer Alexis Angulo by unanimous decision and Jesse Hart by majority decision in a rematch before moving up in weight to face Tommy Karpency and stopped him after four rounds. He then stopped Alfonso Lopez for the NABF Light Heavyweight Crown and then decided to vacate the 175 lb division and move up to cruiserweight, where he beat Joe Smith. Overall, Ramirez has stopped six of his last 10 opponents after going the distance in eight out of 12 at one point.

Some of his other noteworthy wins have been against Sullivan Barrera, Derek Edwards, Fulgencio Zuniga, Junior Talipeau, and Derrick Findley. Ramirez has been successful up to now basically due to a combination of power, skill and aggressiveness but was quite disappointing in his loss to Bivol. He needs to tighten up defensively if he wants to win a world title again but has displayed a solid chin up to now. However, he may be more effective if he took better advantage of his height and controlled the distance in his bouts.


Fans were disappointed in Ramirez’s performance against Bivol as the devastating puncher looked quite timid and lethargic as he didn’t let his hands go nearly enough, but he rebounded quite well against Joe Smith Jr. He was too cautious against Bivol though and was easily outboxed. Ramirez is most effective when he sticks to his strengths which are aggression and power and simply lets his hands go. He’s got a great chin and may need it against Goulamirian, but should be able to handle his hardest shots and come out with a win.

Ramirez’s power and natural aggression should be the difference.

Play: Ramirez -300 @
