Cabrera-Mioletti’s quest towards world title continues at Battle at the Boat 118

Undefeated super featherweights Giovanni Cabrera Mioletti and Headley Scott collide in the main event of Battle at the Boat 118 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash. on Saturday.

The 10-round bout between 13-0 Cabrera Mioletti and 11-0 Scott headlines a six-bout card.

Tickets are available through the EQC box office and all Ticketmaster Outlets. Preliminary bouts will start at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The 24-year-old Cabrera Mioletti, a native of Seattle who now fights out of Chicago, has already faced and defeated five undefeated boxers during the early stages of his professional career with two of those victories coming this year.

Cabrera Mioletti handed Elijah Pierce (8-0) his first career setback on June 9. That win came almost three months after the rising star knocked out previously 11-0 Ray Lampkin Jr. in the second round of their scheduled 10-round bout.

“Giovanni certainly has the ‘It factor,’” promoter Brian Halquist said. “We’ve been putting on fights at the Emerald Queen from more than two decades. We’ve had 700 or so fight’s here with numerous world champions appearing on our cards. Gio is as bright a young star as we’ve seen here and that’s saying a lot.”

Cabrera Mioletti is coming off a fourth-round win via TKO over former world title contender Carlos Padilla on Sept. 8.

“Training has been great. I’m becoming a stronger, faster and more intelligent fighter,” Cabrera Mioletti said. “The focus of all our training is to refine and improve in all aspects of our game. I don’t see any limits to how much we can improve. That is a thought, which is exciting and motivational.”

Cabrera Mioletti will face what is likely his hardest-hitting opponent in Scott, who was won 10 of his 11 fights by knockout.

The Atlanta product defeated Justin Johnson by second-round KO in his last fight on May 12. It marked the eighth time in his career Scott has ended a fight in the first two rounds.

“I don’t think Gio has faced a fighter like Headley Scott before,” Halquist said. “All this kid does is knock people out. This is a very exciting main event that should have big implications on the rankings for the winner.”

Giovanni Cabrera-Mioletti has gained a reputation for his willingness to take on all-comers as the super featherweight has certainly not shied away from facing fellow undefeated fighters.

For the third time over his last four fights and the sixth time in his career, the 24-year-old Cabrera-Mioletti will square off against a boxer with an unblemished record on Nov. 17 when he faces knockout artist Headley Scott in the main event of Battle at the Boat 118 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash.

Cabrera-Mioletti brings a 13-0-0 record with 4 KOs into the 10-round bout, while Scott has a spotless 11-0-0 record with 10 of his victories coming via knockout.

Tickets are available through the EQC box office and all Ticketmaster Outlets. Preliminary bouts will start at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m.

The six-bout card will also feature a pair of 5-round junior welterweight battles. With Jorge Linares facing Marco Cardenas and undefeated Cris Reyes squaring off against Andres Reyes.

Cabrera-Mioletti is coming off a fourth-round TKO victory over former world title contender Carlos Padilla, who previously fought for the interim World Boxing Association World Super Featherweight Championship.

Prior to that victory, Cabrera-Mioletti won a 10-round unanimous decision over Elijah Pierce (8-0) on June 9 and knocked out Ray Lampkin, Jr. (11-0) in the second round on March 17.

All three victories occurred at the Emerald Queen Casino.

“The Emerald Queen Casino has a tremendous atmosphere on fight night. People come from all over Seattle and Tacoma to see us perform and it’s an incredible feeling,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “These are seasoned aficionados of boxing who have an eye for the sweet science. I am grateful to all the fans for their support.”

Cabrera-Mioletti is a perfect 7-0 at the Tacoma venue. He introduced himself to Pacific Northwest boxing fans on June 11, 2016 when he handily defeated Jeremy McCleary, who entered their fight with a strong 8-2 record, in just his second professional fight.

Scott, a resident of Jonesboro, Ga., will be a different fighter than anyone else Cabrera-Mioletti has faced during his career.

Scott has won all but one of his 11 career fights by KO with eight coming in the first two rounds.

“Headley Scott is a dangerous puncher so I’m taking this fight extremely serious. He stands in the way of my pursuit for a world title,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “But I wouldn’t want it any other way and my team agrees. Our path to the top should be paved with the records of undefeated fighters.”

Cabrera-Mioletti also holds wins over former Global Boxing Union World Lightweight Champion Tyrone Harris.

“My prediction for the fight is that it will be extremely entertaining,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “We are fighters who are coming to win with everything on the line.”

Additional undercard bouts include a 143-pound fight between Niko McFarland and Luis DeAlba, a 128-pound contest between Juan Gomez and Carlos Hernandez and 170-pound bout between Roman Avetisyan and Juan Jackson.

Battle at the Boat 118 will feature the VIP experience with 3rdRow Seats being discounted to $75 per ticket. All fans seated in in the VIP section (rows 1-3) will have an exclusive access point and a dedicated server to help create a true VIP experience.
