Gausha scores KO in pro debut

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.

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.
