Resurging super middleweight prospect Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (24-2-1, 15 KOs) turned in an impressive showing on Saturday night, scoring a sixth round stoppage win over Brian Vera (26-12, 16 KOs) at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington. Fighting in the main event of Brian Halquist Productions’ Battle at the Boat 112, Gavronski out-boxed Vera for a majority of the fight before landing a series of shots in the sixth that led to the referee stopping it.

Gavronski utilized his longer reach and lateral movement from the start of the fight, landing solid one-two’s and catching the oncoming Vera with counter right hands. Gavronski maintained a disciplined approach early in the fight, maneuvering effectively and keeping his opponent reaching and unable to get in close enough to do any damage in the first two rounds.

An intriguing super middleweight fight tops the 112th edition of Brian Halquist Productions’ long running ‘Battle at the Boat’ series at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington on September 9th. Popular local prospect Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (23-2-1, 14 KOs) will take on one of his most accomplished opponents to date as he squares off with battle-tested former WBO-NABO middleweight champion Brian Vera (26-11, 16 KOs) in a ten round match-up.

Gavronski is currently riding a three-fight win streak, notching victories over formerly unbeaten Australian prospect Jake Carr (TKO 6), tough Ghanaian Thomas Awimbono (UD 10), and in his most recent fight, taking a ten round unanimous decision victory over the cagey Quinton Rankin last June.

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…)
