For the fourth time in as many chances, a Battle at the Boat show will see hometown favorite Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski (17‐1‐1, 11KOs) in their main event slot. Coming off of an incredible night celebrating their 100th show, Battle at the Boat 101 will take place Saturday, May 30th at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington.
Mike “Imagine Me” Gavronski has been on a roll as of late. The talented Tacoma native has won 3 fights in a row and has earned himself a reputation as one of the top fighters on the West Coast today. Across the ring from Gavronski will be the always‐dangerous Tyrell “Hollywood” Hendrix (11‐6‐2, 4KOs). This fight will be a rematch from their thrilling 2011 bout that resulted in a draw on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights. Hendrix is as tough as they come, willing to fight anyone, anytime. He consistently fights top‐level challengers, with his last 5 opponents having gone a combined 62‐1. Gavronski will look to keep his winning streak alive fighting once again in his own backyard.
Also featured on the card will be two incredible 5‐round contests, featuring some of the most exciting up and coming fighters in years. Virgil “Black Mamba” Green (10‐3, 3KOs) of Vancouver, Washington will be looking to extend his win streak against heavy‐handed Toppenish, Washington native Marcelino Pineda (5‐1, 5KO’s). Pineda has proven himself a true knockout artist, with his latest win coming in brutal fashion during Battle at the Boat 100 in March of this year. Look for these two talented welterweights to give the crowd a potential “Fight of the Night” candidate.
Also going five rounds will be the extremely talented Ray “Lightning Jr.” Lampkin (7‐0, 1KO) making his long awaited return to the I‐5 showroom against undefeated Yakima native Andres Reyes (3‐0). Both fighters will put their perfect records on the line in what’s sure to be a showstopping bout from the opening bell.
