Caparello put on an old school boxing display of hit and don’t get hit as he cruised to a points win over tough kiwi Daniel McKinnon.
I caught up with Team Caparello at training and manager/ trainer Sam Labruna had the flowing to say; “I was very happy with Blake’s performance against McKinnon, Daniel is very experienced and he used every trick in the book to get Blake off his game and make the fight messy.”
I asked Blake what he thought about the fight; “I though I fought a smart calculated fight, I thought I landed the decisive blows and the cleaner punches and hardly got hit. I give credit to McKinnon though he was a awkward opponent who was fit to go 12 hard rounds. I did leave a bit too much gas in the tank so I know to trust my fitness and training a bit more for my next title fight.”
When asked what’s next for Caparello co manager Brendan Bourke had this to say; “We have already received a few tantalising offers that are on the table right now. Blake is making some impact into the boxing world and is getting noticed far and wide. I can’t let the cat out of the bag just yet but if this offer comes off it will be big for the team and Australian boxing.”
Sounds like interesting times ahead for Blake Caparello and its rumoured he will be back in the ring this October.
