Australia - As all eyes are on Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (24-0-1, 22 KOs) and the possibility of a unification fight with Bernard “Alien” Hopkins later this year, Blake “Il Capo” Caparello (19-0-1, 6 KOs) sees everyone in the boxing community forgetting about the undefeated southpaw from Australia who is challenging Kovalev for his WBO Light Heavyweight World Title August 2 at Revel in Atlantic City, NJ.
Fans and the media alike are mesmerized by Kovalev’s ability to knockout the majority of his opponents, but Caparello has the ability to go the distance and that could prove troublesome for Krusher, who has never gone more than 8 rounds (and has only done that once in his career: against Darnell Boone on Oct. 9, 2010). Blake is no stranger to lasting deep into the later rounds of a fight, with 14 of his 20 career professional bouts going the distance. He has four complete 12-round fights and five complete 10-round fights. (continue reading…)

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, July, 18, 2014 — Paco Presents in association with Golden Boy promotions made boxing’s return to Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco a successful one with a passionate sellout crowd at the Longshoreman’s Hall.
The headliner of the night featured San Diegan by way of Cebu, Philippines Mercito “No Mercy” Gesta vs tough Tijuana veteran Luis “El Vampiro” Arceo. The first round and a half featured a somewhat tentative and possibly ring rusty Mercito back pedaling around the ring throwing 1 shot at a time. Luis stalked forward on spindly legs throwing long right hands, some landing and most missing. At the end of the second round, Mercito rocked Luis with a southpaw straight left then teed off for 15 seconds, folding Luis into the ropes, which Luis used to bounce back and blast Mercito with a hard right at the bell.
