Giovanni Cabrera-Mioletti set for Battle at the Boat 11


Giovanni Cabrera-Mioletti will look to stay undefeated when he steps back into the ring on Saturday, June 9.

The junior lightweight will face fellow unbeaten knockout artist Elijah Pierce in the main event of Battle at the Boat 116 at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Wash.

“Training has been going great. I was recently in (WBC World Featherweight champion) Gary Russell, Jr.s training camp for his preparation against Jo Jo Diaz,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “So I’m in magnificent shape. I learned a lot from the Russell Brothers.

Cabrera-Mioletti brings a stellar 11-0 record into the scheduled 10-bout contest and is coming off a victory over previously undefeated Ray Lampkin, Jr.

Cabrera-Mioletti scored an impressive second-round victory via TKO over Lampkin on March 17, handing the gifted Lampkin his first career setback.

“My win over Lampkin was a great victory for me.” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “He was undefeated with a historic name behind him so I’m proud to have beat him like I did.”

The win over Lampkin came after Cabrera-Mioletti defeated former Global Boxing Union world lightweight champion Tyrone Harris on Jan. 13.

“I take pride in the way my trainers John Nocita and Sammy Ditusa are handling my career . We are unafraid to fight the best,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “How can I say that I deserve my ranking if I haven’t fought someone with a winning record? Unfortunately this is how many young fighters build their false status. Facing the best is what boxing used to be like. As a team we like to embody the gritty and glorious nature of the old boxing world.

Cabrera-Mioletti will face another undefeated fighter in Pierce, who brings an 8-0 record into the contest with seven of his victories coming by knockout.

“My respects to Elijah Pierce for putting his record on the line. We will give a hell of a show,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “Pierce is a very good fighter. He’s a slick southpaw with some pop. I’m making sure that I’m in the best shape possible. He better do the same.

Prior to turning pro, Cabrera-Mioletti put together am extremely successful amateur career, highlighted by a 2013 Chicago Golden Gloves championship, 2014 Municipal Champion of Leon title, 2015 Champion of Guanajuato distinction and a 2015 Mexican National bronze medal.

Cabrera-Mioletti signed with Brian Halquist Productions in early February.

“Winning has become a habit and beating undefeated fighters is becoming something that I can’t get enough of also,” Cabrera-Mioletti said. “I definitely have extra motivation take (Pierce’s) 0. I can’t wait for June 9.
