Tacoma, Washington (August 4, 2015) Once again, world-class professional boxing is coming to the Emerald Queen Casino. Brian Halquist Productions is excited to announce Battle at the Boat 102, live from the I-5 showroom on Saturday, August 15th at 7:00PM.
Battle at the Boat 102 will give fight fans the chance to see some of the best up and coming boxers from all over the Pacific Northwest and beyond. Headlining this incredible night of fights will be Tacoma native and Battle at the Boat mainstay Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (18-1-1 12KO’s) taking on top African contender Laatekwei Hammond (21-9 14KO’s) of Worcester, Massachusetts in a 10-round main event.
Gavronski has been on fire as of late, winning his last 4 contests in stellar fashion. His latest victory came via highlight-reel TKO against rival Tyrell Hendrix at Battle at the Boat 101 in May of this year. Known for his vicious power as well as incredible stamina, fans know not to blink anytime their hometown hero steps between the ropes.
“Mike Gavronski is one fight away from a top 10 world rating,” said promoter, Brian Halquist. “This is the most important fight of his life. If he wins, a huge fight is out there for him.”
Before the main event fighters make the walk to the ring, two featured bouts will be looking to steal the show. The first will showcase a pair of young blue chip prospects, as another Tacoma native, Marquice Weston (5-0-1 2KO’s) takes on Utah’s David Sanchez (3-1 1KO) in a 5- round contest. While Weston’s extreme reach advantage makes him a dangerous opponent for anyone standing across the ring, the talented Sanchez will look to derail the young prospect’s rise up the chart in his own backyard.
Also featured in a 5-round contest will be Battle at the Boat favorite Jason Davis of Vancouver, Washington. Fans who have seen Davis fight before know to expect fireworks from the savvy veteran as he takes on David Lopez of Caldwell, Idaho.
Battle at the Boat 102 is presented live from the Emerald Queen Casino on Saturday, August 15th. Doors will open at 6:00PM with the first bout scheduled for 7:00PM Tickets start at only $25 and are available through the Emerald Queen Casino box office as well as all Ticketmaster locations.
