Default Thoughts on Blake Capparello

I like him and think he is pretty good, it seems he always tries to fight the best available, I know last nights fight was a little boring but his win over Berridge seems even more impressive now...

He looks huge at lightheavy, how do you think he would go against the likes of Bellow or Chilemba??

The cards for the Capparello v Berridge were not a fair assesment of how close the fight was imo.

In no way am I saying Blake didn't deserve the win, but I thought it was a closer fight than what the judges scored.

I think both Bellew and Chilemba outclass Blake at this stage in his career but he is on the right track.

He is impressive and holds a lot of impressive victories in his career albeit still a early career.Next big Aus thing IMO,compare his career to the likes of Will,Joel,2Gunz Fleming etc - Blake is miles ahead.

Old man seems to think he could beat anyone in aus from smw to heavyweight, i think he is talented and has a lot of potential and is definitely our best prospect for sure.

Seems like its been a while since McCulloch was last fighting. No word on next fight? Need to keep him active. I know he's been sparring Bika.

Seen 3 fights of his he's good. Would be nice if he was a bit more heavyhanded but he's winning all his fights. Can't ask for more than that.

I agree he is dominant at domestic level.
I think the borderline top 10 fighters Bellew & Chilemba may be a little too big a step up.

I would target someone like Commonwealth Champ Ovill McKenzie if I were Caparello's team. Good step up from what he has been fighting.
