Caudle has deservedly earned his nickname “The Quiet Storm.” He has quietly taken the North Carolina boxing world by storm to become one of the top ranked Heavyweights and arguably the best pure fighter in North Carolina. His 6-0 record includes a signature KO win over respected Heavyweight Miree “Pink Panther Coleman.” After the win, Caudle did not celebrate, he acted like it was expected of him.
Driven by family, he was raised with nine other siblings. He has three kids that give him life, and the will to succeed.
A Graduate of Wake Forest-Rollesville High School where he focused on construction, technology, and drafting. As a Freshman, he played running back on the football team. That same year, he joined the wrestling team and fell in love. After making varsity his freshman year, he quit football to become a full time grappler. He would excel and become the team captain his senior and junior years. His senior year would see him place ninth in the state, and he would break the High School take down record. He finished his storied wrestling career with a record of 44-5.
Made his pro debut on July 2015 in Fayetteville, NC winning a unanimous decision over previously undefeated fighter Lawrence Blackwell. The win was significant, because it was Caudle’s first official fight as a boxer (Amateur and Professional). He has won five consecutive fights by KO. The win over Coleman put him on the map, but his third round stoppage of Dennis McKinney solidified his place as one of the best fighters and best heavyweights in North Carolina. McKinney was a veteran of over eighty fights, and has been in the ring with notable heavyweight contenders Malik Scott, Jason Tufte, Oleg Maskaev, and Vinny Madalone.
Had MMA record of 5-2 and won 2 Light Heavyweight titles. He joined combat sports to cut weight, and get into body building. He hated running, so began training with Steven King at Innovative Mixed Martial Arts. King encouraged and gave him guidance to start fighting. King sent him out to other gyms to work on specific techniques, and Caudle came across his current trainer and coach Keedar Massey of the Inner City Gym in Durham, NC. Unable to get any MMA fights, Massey introduced Caudle to Boxing and he has not looked back.
