Default How far will Blake Capparello go?

I reckon he is very good, he has won some good fights early in his career.
I like his style awkward southpaw and is a reasonably big lightheavy.

You guys reckon he could win a world title in the next couple years?

Possibly not but with a bit more experience could give it a good shake. Good fighter willing to step up.

Robbery against Berridge... He will take a beating, when he steps up.

Caparello has been well matched thus far & not protected at all which is great to see, & he has shown terrific progression.
While i wouldnt expect Caparello to win a world title, when he does face top calibre opposition he will be much more prepared unlike some other Aussies who get to 25-0 fighting bums.

Looks awkward and works the body well from what I have seen. Hopefully he goes well when he steps up.

It will be interesting to see what his team's next move is. I'd really like to see him take on another young contender like Tony Bellew or Ryan Coyne.

I would back Bellew to beat Caparello clearly at the moment...Bellew is a top 15 Light Heavy.

Coyne on the other hand could be very interesting...has come down in weight from Cruiser. Good luck getting Coyne tho as he is in legal battles with the devil Don King.

Fit, strong and awkward, sounds similar to Soliman and could probably achieve to same things eg Multiple Australian Titles, Commonwealth Title and world ranked fighter.

I think he could work his way to earn a world title shot, but am not sure if he would have enough to beat a genuine world champion, well not yet anyway. I just don't think being fit, strong and awkward would be enough to make up for the basic fundamentals that he lacks and he would get exposed against a real world class boxer, however I would be happy to be proved wrong.

I would rate Capperello to be Heavyweight and Cruiser as well as Light heavy Australian champs if he chose to be.

He beat Berridge no question, only time Berridge was robbed was against Foley.
I disagree that Capparello is like Soliman, Capparello is more accurate with his shots and doesn't swing like a gorrilla, also Capparello has more power, he would have more KO's if he chose to fight bums.

He could win a world title tommorow if he wanted to. Pay $3k to wbf find a blown up thai preferbly a light middle . Hardest part is he will have to find his own opponent.

He was getting robbed by Broadhurst before he ko'ed him. That Capparello fight was not wide at all. Rematch in NZ and see who win's.
