Reigning World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental Light Heavyweight ruler Travis Hanshaw, 14-1-1 (7), is set to move down a weight-class to fight for the vacant WBF World Super Middleweight title on Saturday June 29.
Having fought professionally in every weight-division from Light Welterweight to Cruiserweight, Hanshaw now gets his big opportunity at Super Middleweight when he takes on Aaron Quattrocchi, 11-2-1 (5), at his usual stomping-grounds, the Boyd County Community Center in Catlettsburg, Kentucky, USA.
“Rattlesnake” Hanshaw (27), nicknamed so because he was bitten by a rattlesnake as a child, won the Intercontinental Light Heavyweight crown in November of 2017, and retained it last July with an impressive victory over 10-1-1 Roy King.
From Ashland, only a few miles from Catlettsburg, he is expected to be cheered on by his usual throng of fans, and he will need all the support he can get against a determined Quattrocchi, who is full of confidence, having won the West Virginia State title against undefeated Joey Holt (9-0) in his most recent outing.
Travis “Rattlesnake” Hanshaw vs. Aaron “Quiet Storm” Quattrocchi for the vacant World Boxing Federation (WBF) World Super Middleweight title on June 29 will headline a show promoted by Tom Hanshaw´s East Coast Promotions.
