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.

Heavy-handed Pacific Northwest banger Steven “Hands of Gold” Villalobos (4-0, 4 KOs) will look to add a fifth consecutive win on Saturday night at the Mount Baker Theater in Bellingham, Washington, facing off with Idaho’s Vince Morales in a four round Jr. middleweight fight. The bout will be one of four boxing contests featured on Avelar/Galeas Promotions’ inaugural ‘Fight Night Championship,’ which will have both boxing and MMA on the card.

Villalobos, of Burlington, Washington, has scored all four of his wins by knockout and all within the first round. The twenty-six year old from Burlington, Washington started boxing only two years ago and had a relatively short yet successful amateur career, claiming a Tacoma Golden Gloves championship in 2016. He turned pro last September with a first round knockout of Colby Grayson and has stayed fairly busy since, fighting three times in 2017. He last fought on June 24th, scoring an impressive first round TKO over William Fernandez. (continue reading…)
