Professional careerEdit

Barashian won the European light-heavyweight title in February 2008 with a knockout win over Thomas Ulrich. Following the win, he was ranked as a top contender for the WBA light-heavyweight title. He faced Hugo Garay in July 2008, but lost a unanimous decision. In his next bout, Barashian challenged WBO champion Zsolt Erdei but was again defeated via unanimous decision. The bout would have been contested for Erdei's title, but Barashian missed the weight limit, making it a non-title bout.
