The Armenian-German is the newest addition to Probellum’s elite-level roster, which has been expanding at a fast pace since launching in September.

Following its launch, Probellum has already signed a number of top-quality fighters to its roster, including Pat and Luke McCormack, Regis Prograis, Nonito Donaire, Donnie Nietes, Lee McGregor, Eimantas Stanionis, Arthur Biyarslanov, Taras Shelestyuk, Ricky Burns, Paul Butler, Lewis Ritson, Muhammad Waseem, O’Shaquie Foster, Hovhannes Bachkov, Darius Fulghum, Eduardo Hernandez, Mark Dickinson, Brandon Moore, Jack Bowen and Jason Mallia.

Probellum has also secured co-promotional agreements with Wasserman Boxing, Universum in Germany, Groupe Yvon Michel in Canada, Maravillabox Promotions in Spain, Kynoch Boxing in Scotland, Mitchell Sports Promotions in England, LNK Boxing in Latvia, Titov Boxing in Russia, Glozier Boxing in New Zealand, Cuadrilatero Boxing in Colombia, PR Best Boxing in Puerto Rico, BXSTRS Promotions in Mexico, Shuan Boxing Promotions in the Dominican Republic, Bufalo Boxing in Nicaragua, Team Ellis Boxing in Australia, Moron Boxing in Venezuela, Volcano Boxing in El Salvador, Armin Tan Promotions in Indonesia, and Box Office Sports in Ghana.

The inaugural Probellum event took place at Dubai’s Coca-Cola Arena earlier this month, with Sunny Edwards retaining his IBF flyweight title courtesy of a win over Jayson Mama in the headline bout. A second show followed in the UK last Saturday.

“I’m very happy to sign for Probellum, the most exciting new brand in boxing,” said Mikaelian.

“I believe this will be a significant step in my development as a fighter, and I’m really looking forward to starting 2022 in a positive way, under the guidance of Probellum.”

“Noel has proven his quality for many years, and we are delighted to confirm his signing,” added Richard Schaefer, President of Probellum.

“The fact he has fought 27 times and secured 25 victories speaks volumes, and we are eager to see him take his undoubted talent onto another level with Probellum.”
