The Pacific Northwest’s top Super Middleweight prospect Mike Gavronski has been added to the June 26th line-up at the Little Creek Casino in Shelton, Washington. Gavronski will be part of the non-televised undercard of the Showtime ShoBox triple header promoted by TGB Promotions.

The card will be headlined by unbeaten Middleweight prospect Dominick Wade (17-0, 12KOs) taking on former IBF Middleweight Champion Sam Soliman (44-12, 1NC, 18KO’s) and is already stacked with a dozen fights featuring a number of boxing’s promising up and comers, but the addition of Gavronski will be of particular interest to local Northwest fight fans. The once beaten Tacoma native has built a following over the past few years and a number of them can be expected to make the short forty-five minute trek from the Seattle-Tacoma area to Shelton to support their fighter.  (continue reading…)

The Pacific Northwest’s top Super Middleweight hopeful continued his career resurgence last Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington with an impressive win over a durable opponent. Headlining Brian Halquist Production’s Battle at the Boat 101, Mike Gavronski scored a ninth round TKO of over Los Angeles’ Tyrel Hendrix. The two had fought once before, battling to a draw in a closely contested affair that was televised on ESPN2′s Friday Night Fights. Gavronski left no doubt this time, punctuating the rivalry with a vicious barrage.

From the outset Gavronski (18-1-1 12KO’s 166.5 lbs.) set out to impose his range and quickly did so with stiff jabs and lateral movement, taking early control of the fight. Throughout the first two rounds he effectively worked off his jab and unloaded with precise combinations while avoiding his opponent’s retaliatory swings, racking up points while taking little in return.

Battle at the Boat 101 Poster

This Saturday’s Battle at the Boat 101 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington is being met with quite a level of anticipation from Pacific Northwest fight fans. Tickets are reportedly going fast and with good reason; Brian Halquist and his Halquist Productions team have lined up one of the most intriguing cards in recent memory with six well-matched fights featuring some of the best fighters in the region. This year has already been a successful one for Halquist with two exciting  shows that drew increasingly larger crowd and early indications are that this one may top both.

In the main event, Tacoma’s own Michael Gavronski (17-1-1 11KO’s) will look to continue his climb back up the 168 lbs. ladder and claim a victory over former rival Tyrell Hendrix (11-6-2 4KO’s) of Los Angeles, California. The two fought to a draw back in April of 2011 in a closely contested four round bout televised on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights. Now, three years removed from their first encounter and both with much more experience at a higher level of competition, they will meet in a ten round super middleweight fight to settle any argument as to who is the better fighter.

Gavronski fires his right

 Brian Halquist Productions returns to the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington  Saturday May 30th, with what is shaping up to be one of the best local cards to take place at the venue in the last few years. Already this year, Brian Halquist and match-maker Andy Nance have put together two highly entertaining shows featuring some of the best regional talent in tough match-ups. This upcoming card, which will be the one hundred and first installment of the long running Battle at the Boat series, will follow suit with six intriguing bouts, highlighted by local fighters.

In the ten round main event top Northwest Super Middleweight prospect Michael Gavronski looks to set straight one of the blemishes on his record against Los Angeles’ Tyrell Hendrix. Early in Gavronski’s career, with only two fights under his belt, Gavronski battled Hendrix to a four round majority draw in a closely contested fight that saw both fighters hit the canvass in the first round. Now both, with much more experience at a vastly higher level, will meet once again in an opportunity to claim the win each man feels eluded him four years ago. (continue reading…)

TACOMA, WA — Brian Halquist Productions celebrated their milestone 100th Battle at the Boat this past Saturday night at the Emerald Queen Casino. The long running series has remained the premier venue for boxing in the Pacific Northwest for nearly two decades and continues to give fans some of the best fights featuring local talent and national stars. For this monumental 100th edition, promoter Brian Halquist and match-maker Andy Nance lined up six well-matched, exciting fights that featured some of the best prospects in the region. In the main event, the very popular Mike Gavronksi returned for his third consecutive headline bout at the venue and claimed a hard-fought seventh round TKO over the quick and crafty Maurice Louishomme in a highly entertaining fight.

At the outset Gavronksi (17-1-1 11KOs 162.5 lbs.), who usually employs a tactical approach early in his fights, came right at his opponent, firing off hard power punches and landing with some hellacious one-twos. He was clearly thinking knockout as he pressed vigorously, letting his hands go with shots from all angles. Louishomme (8-2-1 4 KOs 159 lbs.) was at first put on the defensive, but as the first round came to a close he was responding with some heavy leather of his own, making for a some intense exchanges.
