Mansour-Gavern not for NABA heavyweight title

By Boxing Bob Newman

NABA director George Martinez has informed Fightnews.com that the heavyweight bout at Dover Downs Hotel & Casino in Dover, Deleware between Amir “Hardcore” Mansour (17-0, 13 KOs) and late sub Jason Gavern (21-13-4, 10 KOs) will not be for the NABA title. The originally scheduled fight between Mansour and Devin Vargas was approved for that title, that once Vargas fell out of the fight, a suitable opponent had to be submitted for NABA approval to have the fight sanctioned. Jason Gavern was inserted into the match by organizers, but NOT approved as a challenger for the vacant belt.
