Cleveland native and 2012 US Olympian Terrell Gausha scored an impressive 2nd round KO over an outmatched Dustin Caplinger on Friday night at the Fantasy Springs Casino in Indio, California.
Caplinger seemed to want to turn the bout into a wrestling match, trying to tie up Gausha instead of getting into exchanges. When Gausha was able to create space he scored a knockdown near the end of the initial round, then floored Caplinger twice in the 2nd round, forcing referee Tom Taylor to stop the contest at 1:55 of that round.
Anything less than a knockout win over Caplinger would have been a disappointment, and Gausha did his part, dispatching his man in impressive fashion.
Gausha will look to stay active and will hopefully fight again before the end of the year. Caplinger’s record falls to 2-4.
