Helena, Montana’s Duran Caferro (16-1, 12 KOs) turned in a dominant performance on Saturday night at the Shrine Auditorium in Billings, Montana, knocking out Cheyenne Zeigler (3-13, 2 KOs), of Lower Brule, South Dakota in the super middleweight main event of Silver Wolf Fight Promotions’ “Magic City Fight Night.” Caferro used his superior skills to out-box Zeigler for two rounds before ending matters in the third with a vicious uppercut.

Using his longer reach and lateral movement, Caferro quickly set the range of the fight in the first round, jabbing at a distance and following up with quick straight rights. Caferro maintained a steady work-rate throughout the first round, keeping Zeigler on the outside and unable to cut the distance, instead catching hard counter shots as he made the effort to get in close. Late in the round a crisp jab rocked Zeigler back and slightly buckled his knees. (continue reading…)

One of the best young prospects to come out of the state of Montana in some time made his second defense of the state’s Welterweight title this past Friday night a the Eagles Lodge in Helena, Montana. Local favorite Duran Caferro successfully defended his belt with a dominating two round display, pushing St. Louis, Missouri’s Kelly Wright to retire on his stool at the start of the third round. The match-up was the main attraction of a six bout Pro/Am show put on by H-Town Eagles.

Caferro (13-1, 10 KOs), a rangy fighter with a good jab, began the fight by quickly taking control of the range and setting the tempo. Using his stiff jabs and lateral movement, Caferro found openings for his straight rights and left hooks, countering his opponent well as Wright (4-17) made an effort to get in close. As the first round neared the end, Caferro was firmly in control, landing with precise combinations, rocking his opponent back.  (continue reading…)

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.
