‘Kell Brook is as good as world title fight for Michael Zerafa’

'Michael Zerafa is not here just to be Kell Brook's opponent, we’re here to shock the boxing world,' Blake Caparello tells Matt Bevan

MICHAEL ZERAFA hasn’t been billed as a dangerous opponent for Kell Brook. For the vast majority of the boxing fraternity, Zerafa is here to make Brook look good, as he continues along the path towards a fight with his bitter domestic rival Amir Khan.

However, Zerafa and his team are bullish in the face of all the talk and his trainer, and former light-heavyweight world title challenger, Blake Caparello is adamant that they are not here to make up the numbers.

Zerafa has been defeated both times he has fought outside Australia, by Peter Quillin and Arif Magomedov, and his record sits at 25-2, 14 by way of stoppage, but Caparello and the team have no doubt that it will be third time lucky for the Melbourne born “Pretty Boy”.
