Kentucky favourite Travis “Rattlesnake” Hanshaw (19-1-1, 9 KOs) is getting ready for his final fight, and aims to go out as a Universal Boxing Organization™ (UBO) champion.

 
 

After almost thirteen years as a prize-fighter, the 32-year-old will headline one last time on May 11 in his home-town of Ashland, fighting for the vacant UBO Continental (North America) Cruiserweight title.


His opponent will be Guyana-born New Yorker Jermin King, who may bring a less-than-stellar 8-15-1 (5) record, but has won seven of his last ten.


When Hanshaw entered the professional ranks in 2011, he was barely a welterweight. The following year he won the Kentucky state title at Welterweight, before starting his climb up the divisions.


 
 

In 2017 he became World Boxing Federation (WBF) Intercontinental champion at Light Heavyweight, a title he defended once before moving down to Super Middleweight to win the WBF world title in 2019.

He has since won four bouts at Cruiserweight, and his “Last Ride” will be at this weight as he attempts to retire in a blaze of glory in front of his loyal fans.

Preceded by a well-matched undercard, the UBO title figh will headline a show promoted by East Coast Promotions.
