2012 US Olympian and Cleveland native Terrell Gausha makes his professional debut tonight at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California. Showtime is expected to televise Gausha’s bout, as he is one of several 2012 US Olympians debuting.

Gausha fought as a middleweight in the Olympics and will fight in the super-middleweight division for his debut against Dustin Caplinger.  Both fighters weighed in yesterday with Gausha hitting the scales at 164 pounds, while Caplinger was 165 1/2.

While Gausha has plenty of in ring experience as an amateur boxer, Caplinger has been a professional since 2003, but has only fought once since 2005, losing a four round majority decision in July. Overall Caplinger brings a record of 2-3, with 1 KO. He has been stopped one time among his three losses.

Gausha shouldn’t have any issues tonight and a knockout should be expected.
