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’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…)
