Bout number 306 for Irish fighters took place tonight in Birmingham as a fantastic 2017 draws to a close.
What started with Noely Murphy on a big PBC card in New York ended with Belfast super featherweight Anto Cacace in action in a keep-busy at the Hilton Hotel in England’s second city.
‘The Apache’ geared up for a big 2018 with a comprehensive six-rounds points win on a Black Country Boxing card in the midlands.
The Belfast fighter defeated Nicaraguan Reynaldo Mora in what was his first fight back since a narrow British and Commonwealth title loss to newly-crowned European champion Martin J Ward during the Summer.
Cacace was completely dominant tonight, dropping Mora in the third and fourth rounds en-route to a 59-52 points win – after having a point docked in the final stanza for low blows.
The comeback win sees Cacace improve to 16(7)-1(0), while the outclassed Mora falls to 7(4)-31(9)-1.
