  Battle At The Boat 110 This Sat. At Emerald Queen

Middleweights Dashon Johnson and Aaron Coley square off in a 10-round main event of Battle at the Boat 110 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash. on Saturday.

The latest edition of Battle at the Boat, the nation’s longest-running tribal casino boxing series and will celebrate its 20th anniversary in July, will feature six bouts.

Johnson will look to notch career victory No. 23. A former MMA fighter with appearances on two UFC Fight Night cards, Johnson has won his last three fights at the venue, including a victory over Mike Gavronski in a contest for the WBA-NABA United States super middleweight title on Nov. 7, 2015.

Johnson scored a TKO win over Ricardo Pinell (14-2-1) in his last outing on Jan. 20.

Coley (13-1-1) makes his local debut in the main event. The 26-year-old southpaw has won his last four fights with his last and only career setback occurring nearly two years ago against Ievgen Khytrov, a world top 20-ranked middleweight who fought Immanuwel Aleem for the vacant WBC Silver middleweight crown in January.

“A lot is on the line in this main event for both fighters,” promoter Brian Halquist said. “Both of these guys are right on the cusp of breaking through into that upper echelon of the middleweight division. This really can be viewed as an eliminator bout with the winner moving on to big things.”

Battle at the Boat 110 will feature the VIP experience with 3rd Row 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.

The card will also feature a 140-pound semi-main event between Andres Reyes and Jacob Szilasi, a 135-pound fight between undefeated Gio Cabrera-Mioletti and Niko McFarland, and a 175-pound bout between Cameron Sevilla-Rivera and Kian Heidari.
