George Arias (born 21 April 1974 in São Paulo) is a retired Brazilian heavyweight boxer based in São Paulo. His professional record stands at 56 wins and 16 losses in 72 bouts.

Professional career[edit]

Arias faced boxers such as Kubrat Pulev[1], Hughie Fury[2], Taras Bidenko, Owen Beck, Sinan Şamil Sam and Juan Carlos Gomez. All but Gomez failed to stop Arias.

He started his career at Cruiserweight, having a short against WBO Cruiserweight champion Johnny Nelson in January 2001 losing by a lopsided unanimous decision.

He fought on the undercard of an IBF title match between Chris Byrd vs Evander Holyfield on December 14, 2002 against former NABF champion Fres Oquendo, losing by 11th round TKO. [3]

On 6 September 2008, Arias faced former Olympic Gold medalist Audley Harrison at the MEN Arena in Manchester, live on Sky Box Office, on the undercard of Amir Khan vs. Breidis Prescott.[4] but lost on points 94 to 98. He only had a 4-day notice to the bout after Martin Rogan had pulled out with injury.[5][6][7]

Arias is a former Brazilian and South American heavyweight title holder. As of 2009 he was preparing himself to make an assault toward the world title but this time with the professional help of investors, however this never came to pass and he never received a shot at a world Heavyweight title. He works as a personal trainer.

He retired after a 2nd round TKO defeat at the hand of Zhang Junlong.[8]
