Blake Caparello: I'm Too Experienced For Joshua Buatsi!

Light heavyweight contender Blake Caparello 30-3 ( 13KO's ) believes Joshua Buatsi 12-0 ( 10KO's ) has stepped up too quickly and will realize inside the first round he's made a big mistake, when they collide on November 2 at the Manchester Arena

"You can't jump levels in boxing," stated Caparello. "I'm not sure why they're in such a rush with him, he's only had 12 fights. He'll realize this round one."

Caparello who's coming off 4 wins in a row says he's learnt many lessons from his stepup fights and now has experience is everything.

"I've fought the best and I know where I went wrong. Now I've learnt from that and I'm ready to make this my breakout fight." stated Caparello. "Everybody can  see Johsua's strengths, but we know his weaknesses, his last fight showed us everything we need to know. I'm going to win this fight."

In what's been promised to be a great night of fights by Matchroom Boxing. The event will be live on SKY TV in the UK, live in the USA on DANZ and live in Australia on Fox Sports.

IN OTHER NEWS: DECLAN GERAGHTY insists his luck will change when he challenges WBO European super-featherweight champion Archie Sharp next week.

Sharp (16-0, 8KOs) makes the second defence of his title against the Dubliner at London’s Royal Albert Hall on Friday September 27, live on BT Sport.

Geraghty (19-4, 4KOs) has fallen short in championship fights against Marco McCullough and world title challengers Jono Carroll and James Tennyson.

He bounced back last month with a win following the McCullough defeat in May and says: “You can knock on the door so many times. Eventually it has to be answered and opened at some stage.

“It is not frustrating going so close in big fights because Tennyson and Carroll were two fellas who fought for world titles.

“The McCullough fight I was winning handily and he caught me with a shot from God. He didn’t even believe he could do that.

“Marco and Tennyson got lucky in my opinion. Jono did beat me in our second fight and the first one against him when I was disqualified I don’t count as a loss.

“I have had enough setbacks, but I keep knocking on the door believing I can do things.”

Geraghty, 29, was based in Spain, but has been preparing in his home city for the Sharp showdown and is trained by his dad, Declan Snr.

And a win against Sharp who is ranked at number nine in the WBO rankings for American Jamel Herring’s world title will get the likeable Irishman’s career firmly back on track.

“I have been knocking on the door for long enough and I believe the time is now,” he added.

“If I didn’t think I was good enough and just believed my own hype I would pack it in, but everyone who knows me can see how good I am.

“I haven’t done half of what I can do. I see what I can do in sparring. I believe I can achieve good things and much more.”

Caparello is past his prime but he has loads of experience at a good level so not a bad fight for Buatsi at this stage. This and the last fight definitely a step in the right direction for buatsi

This would be a far worthy vacant Commonwealth title fight then Lyndon Arthur Vs Emmanual Anim!
