Fisticuffs inks Caputo Smith

By Rick Scharmberg

Dave Escalet’s Fisticuffs Promotions has signed light heavyweight banger Anthony Caputo Smith (14-1, 10 KOs) to a three-year promotional contract. Known as “The Bull”, Caputo Smith is coming off an upset of Dhafir “No Fear” Smith, who is best known for sending former world champion Jeff Lacy into retirement. With his win over Smith, Caputo Smith took home the Pennsylvania State light heavyweight title. He also earned himself a big ten round fight against unbeaten WBA #-11 ranked Sean Monaghan (18-0, 11 KOs) on October 12 at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The bout will part of the HBO PPV event featuring Timothy Bradley taking on Juan Manuel Marquez for Bradley’s WBO welterweight title. “Anthony is coming into his own,” stated Escalet. “With his big win over Dhafir Smith, he will get the opportunity to fight on a pay-per-view card.”
