Blake Caparello Takes Down Trent Broadhurst in One Round

The Melbourne Pavilion, Flemington - Light heavyweight contender Blake Caparello 27-3 ( 11 KO’s ) put on a brutal power punching display against fellow Australian Trent Broadhurst 20- 3 ( 12 KO’s ) dropping him three times in a hectic first round.

There was no love lost between the two best light heavyweights in the country with lots of talk in the build up about ending each other’s careers.

Broadhurst came out swinging at the bell and was loading up with big shots. After several heavy exchanges Caparello lands a huge uppercut that floored Broadhurst.


Taking no backward step Broadhurst beat the count and attacked again throwing everything he had at Caparello. Several more exciting exchanges took place before a brutal combination floored Broadhurst again.

Caparello knew he had Broadhurst badly hurt and finished him off with a left to the body and right hook to the head.

Caparello said after the fight: “Credit to Trent for really having a go! He got up twice after being dropped with clean shots but I wasn’t going to let him off the hook.”

Interestingly Caparello stopped Broadhurst quicker that the current WBA light heavyweight champion Dmitry Bivol. When asked if he’s interested in fighting Bivol, Caparello stated: “I’ll fight anybody but I leave that up to my managers Sam Labruna and Brendan Bourke and my promoter Lou DiBella.”
