Point taken, not the strongest Aus weight division and I like your backing him. I'm just saying, even then, he won't be rushed in. I'd still be very surprised to see him fighting that top 5 in 2013. Again, nothing against the bloke and wish him the best.

Horn look alright at the Olympics and his style and strength should suit the Pros. Ah See could be a darkhorse.

The obvious ones in this category would be Brad Pitt, Will Tomlinson and Blake Caparello.
..yeah true..

..I'd like to see Caparello fight some international opponents..the guy has got serious skills..capable of being a force on the world scene at lightheavy..definately..

It's really difficult to get much info out of Caparello's camp compared to others boxers. Anyone know what his plans might be for 2013?

ATM, none are prepared to challenge his OZ title & he ain't got a promoter to throw-in a voluntary. A dud in the game is trying to get him to contest a regional title 'cos he can get him a WBA rating, but it appears Caparello ain't interested atm.

Thanks DV. Last I checked, he wasnt rated in the top 15 of any of the major bodies. I guess we'll just have to see what he decides to do.

Ibby (Ibrahim) Balla is another to keep tabs on. But @ 55kgs will most likely be a problem.

Blake Capparello seems to be the pick.Hes dodged noone on the aussie scene and will have to go o/s to get fights.

Jeff Horn should make his mark fairly quickly on the domestic scene. For a junior welter he's incredibly big and strong, he;s also really awkward and has an unorthodox style. Could be a real good prospect if brought along over the next 4 years or so. Any word on who will be training him as a pro.

Blake is recoverying from elbow surgery at the moment so I'm not sure when his next fight will be.
