One of Montana’s most promising professional hopefuls will look to continue his ten fight unbeaten streak this Friday, July 31st, at the Eagles Lodge in Helena, Montana. Local favorite Duran Caferro will defend the Montana State Welterweight title, taking on the challenge of St. Louis, Missouri’s Kelly Wright in the main event of H-Town Eagles Promotions’ eight bout Pro/Am show.
Caferro (12-1, 9 KOs), an amateur standout whose lone defeat came two fights into his pro career three years ago, has been on a roll since suffering his first setback, claiming ten straight wins, seven of those within the distance.

The Main event is beginning as the lights dim and the light heavyweight challenger begins his ring walk. Nadjib Mohammedi of Marseille, France ( 37-3, 23 Kos) is wearing a classy Vegas themed hat and walking confidently to the ring when the lights suddenly brighten to trigger the imminent arrival of light heavyweight champion “the Krusher” Sergey Kovalev of Kopeysk, Russia (27-0-1, 24 Kos). The ring entrance music drowns everything out. It’s interesting Russian rock, uncharacteristic of what one would normally hear in a boxing ring. Kovalev is looking very serious, knocking his gloves together during Buffers customary “Let’s get ready to ruuuumbllle!” Read the rest of this entry “
