American fans are used to being able to watch, like, all the fights, from everywhere.

But nah, now and again, some streams escape us. Like on Saturday, Arsen Goulamirian defended his WBA cruiserweight crown against Constantin Bejenaru, and it didn’t screen on a Statside platform.

Therefore, I asked for a report from Arsen’s trainer, Abel Sanchez. Tell us about the win for the 32-year-old from Armenia.

”Very good win,” Sanchez told me, of the clash in Marseille, France. ”Bejenaru was a good opponent for getting great work for the future. Bejenaru is a lefty with an uncomfortable style, in and out, tried to keep Arsen off balance with his movement, but slowly got caught, slowed and broke down. But for me, he gave me the looks and angles that I can take back and my fighter can learn from watching the video.”

The end came in round 10, when Bejernaru went to the mat and the ref pulled the plug, after the 26-0 (18 KO) Goulamirian had proven too strong, too patiently aggressive, for the 35-year-old challenger from Moldova, now 14-1 (4 KO).

”The Summit, Big Bear Lake fighters are doing well. The conditioning, strength, training, and dedication seems to be paying off,” Sanchez said, citing Goulamirian, Michel Soro, Serhii Bohachuk, Alfredo Angulo, Cecilia Braekhus and “soon to return, Murat Gassiev!”
