Zhora Hamazaryan wins American debut by unanimous decision

PHILADELPHIA, PENN./ORANGE, Calif. (Feb. 19, 2018) – Banner Promotions and
Thompson Boxing Promotions are pleased to announce the signing of
undefeated lightweight prospect Zhora Hamazaryan to a co-promotional
contract.

Hamazaryan, 22 years-old of Gyumri, Armenia, improved to 9-0 with 6
knockouts as he won his American debut this past Friday night when he
scored a 4-round unanimous decision over previously undefeated Sergio
Ramirez in Ontario, California.

Hamazaryan is a three year-professional who had his previous eight
victories in Russia.

In the bout against Ramirez, Hamazaryan dropped his opponent with a hard
left hook in the second round. Hamazaryan was very impressive as he
displayed heavy hands and had a crowd pleasing style.

“I’m pleased with the win,” Hamazaryan said. “He was a bit awkward, but it
wasn’t enough to throw me off what I wanted to do.”

“Zhora had a terrific performance, and I am very pleased with his fight,”
said Banner Promotions President, Artie Pelullo.

“He has only been in the United States for a couple weeks, and he will have
a full camp here for his next fight, so I expect that he will be even
better in his next bout. We feel that at 22 years old, he has a bright
future, and I look forward to his watching his development.”

“Zhora made his U.S. debut a memorable one,” said Ken Thompson, President
of Thompson Boxing. “He fought a very awkward fighter and was able to
dominate him from the start. We like that he comes from an extensive
amateur background and look forward to developing him further.”
