TACOMA, WA — Super middleweight prospect Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (22-2-1, 14 KOs) continued his career resurgence on Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, adding a second consecutive win to his twenty-two fight win column, thoroughly out-boxing Accra, Ghana’s Thomas Awimbono (25-5-1, 21 KOs) over ten rounds in the main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ “Battle at the Boat 108″.

¬†Gavronski used his jab and lateral movement to set the range early in the fight, patiently working at a distance and picking off Awimbono with occasional straight right hands as the Ghanaian pressed forward. Maintaining a steady pace, Gavronski easily racked up points in the first half of the fight, keeping the aggressive minded Awimbono at the end of his punches. (continue reading…)

Coming off an impressive sixth round knockout win over previously unbeaten Australian prospect Jake Carr just two months ago, Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (21-2-1, 14 KOs) will look to keep his renewed momentum going on Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, taking on Accra, Ghana’s Thomas Awimbono (25-4-1, 21 KOs) in the main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ “Battle at the Boat 108″.

Gavronski’s win over Carr in September marked his first fight back since losing to Dashon Johnson last November in a bid for the WBA-NABA US 168 lbs. title, only the second loss of his career. Prior to that, Gavronksi had racked up a six fight win streak, rebounding from a 2014 decision loss to current top middleweight world title contender Tureano Johnson for the vacant WBC Continental Americas middleweight belt. The popular Tacoma native, who recently cracked the WBC rankings at #39, looked sharp in his most recent bout, a product of having spent his training camp outside of his home state of Washington, working with Eddie Rivas in San Antonio, Texas. He’s done the same in preparation for the tough Ghanaian fighter.¬† (continue reading…)

Mike “Image Me” Gavronski (21-2-1, 14 KOs) scored a sixth round TKO over previously unbeaten Australian Jake Carr (11-1, 4 KOs) on Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in his hometown of Tacoma, Washington, rebounding in devastating fashion from only his second career loss. In the super middleweight main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 107, Gavronski dropped Carr with a devastating right-left combo in the sixth and forced the stoppage moments later with a barrage of unanswered right hands.

Gavronski, who had not fought since his loss to Dashon Johnson for the WBA-NABA US 168 lbs. title last November, set the tempo early, working his jab from range and following up with occasional right hands. Carr did his best to cut the distance in the early rounds, but Gavronski remained disciplined, boxing well and gradually increasing his output as the fight went on. (continue reading…)

Australia’s Carr Faces Gavronksi in Tacoma this Saturday

This Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, Australian super middleweight prospect Jake Carr (11-0, 4 KOs) will take on Tacoma’s own Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (20-2-1, 13 KOs), breaking a year long hiatus from the sport in his first foray into the U.S. The bout will serve as the main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ 107th installment of the long-running “Battle at the Boat” series.

Carr, who is originally from Victoria, Australia, recently made the move to the U.S. and currently resides in Los Angeles, working with well known trainer Justin Fortune. In his four years as a pro, the highly touted Australian has racked up eleven straight wins and captured the Australian 168 lbs. championship, defeating Serge Yannik for that title in his fifth pro bout by unanimous decision. He went on to make three successful defenses of the belt. Carr will be looking to shake off a year’s worth of ring rust, having fought his last bout in August of last year, scoring a sixth round TKO win over Togasilimai Letoa. (continue reading…)

In one of the biggest wins of his career, battle tested journeyman Dashon “Flyboy” Johnson scored an upset win Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, securing a ninth round TKO over local fan-favorite Mike Gavronski and annexing the vacant WBA-NABA US Super Middleweight title in the process.

Headlining Brian Halquist Productions’ 103rd Battle at the Boat, Johnson and Gavronski fought a rematch of a bout held in January of this year in which Gavronski took a unanimous decision win. In the return bout, Johnson overcame Gavronski’s rangy style to claim an assertive victory. (continue reading…)
