Duran Caferro Set to Defend Montana State Title in Helena This Friday

by on Jul.27, 2015, under Boxing News

By Ricardo Ibarra

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. In addition to holding the Welterweight title, Caferro added the Montana State Middleweight title last January with a unanimous decision win over long time regional stalwart Daniel Gonzalez. Caferro will attempt to make the second successful defense of the state’s 147 lbs. belt against journeyman Kelly Wright. (continue reading…)

LAS VEGAS, NV, July, 25, 2015 — Sergey Kovalev did what was expected of him in outclassing and annihilating mandatory challenger Nadjib Mohammedi in 3 mostly one sided rounds.

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!” (continue reading…)
