USA Boxing News: Caro Looking For An Upset
No one is doing Giovanni Caro any favors that’s for sure. In his last five fights the combined records of his opponent’s reads 80-12 and he has fought in his rivals backyard on four of those fights, yet he is 3-1-1 in those.
So now Caro ,11-4-4,-(9), of Mexico City, is travelling to El Cajon, California to face the world ranked Bernabe Concepcion this Thursday, September 25 in the main event of a card promoted by Manny Pacquiao Promotions (MPP) in association with Sycuan Ringside Promotions at the Sycuan Casino.
Manny Pacquiao manages the career of Concepcion,26-1-1-(15), who is ranked #3 by the WBO and #5 by the WBC and who, at 20 years old is considered by many the top candidate to take his boss’s place at the top Filipino boxer in the future.
For Caro the challenge is a difficult one, but surely not impossible. On May 2 of this year he travelled to Mexico to face Ricardo “Piolo” Castillo for the Mexican Super Bantamweight title and walked away with the title with a 11th round TKO in front of a stunned hometown crowd that included Castillo’s, older brother the two-time world champion Jose Luis Castillo.
In his last fight he was on the canvas in the third round and got up to beat Gabriel Perez in the fourth round to retain his Mexican 122-pound belt. So you know tt’s going to take a lot to intimidate Caro, who is coming for a win no matter what it takes.
