Mike Gavronski and Andrew Hernandez will step in the ring at the Emerald Queen Casino, in Washington, to fight for the WBA-NABA Super Heavyweight Championship (168 pounds) on Saturday night.
The fighters, both Americans, are aiming to get good opportunities in the short term and the fight for the vacant belt will help them climb another position on that path. Gavronski, a 31-year-old veteran, comes from beating the experienced Brian Vera, and will fight against Hernandez, who is the same age as him and has two defeats but does not want to waste this chance.
Gavronski has 24 wins, 2 losses and 1 draw, with 15 knockouts. Hernandez has 19 wins, 7 losses, 1 draw and 9 knockouts.
