Kapuler Wins Amateur Title

Miroslav Kapuler won the 71 kg (156.5 pounds) Israeli national amateur championship last weekend. For the second year in a row he beat Chananya Davids (also spelled Hanania Devida) by decision. Last year's amateur championships were postponed due to covid-19, so the 2021 Israeli nationals took place in August.

Kapuler, who sometimes performs under the surname Ishchenko, also fights professionally. These days boxers can straddled the amateur/professional line. Kapuler is 3-0 with one KO as a pro. His last prizefight was in September.

As a pro, Kapuler has fought as a junior middleweight and as a middleweight. Standing 6' tall, he's a slick southpaw with speed and skill. Miroslav, who is 24 years old, might have a foot in the amateur game with an eye towards to 2024 Paris Olympics, which is only a bit over two years away.
