Cacace splits with Cyclone Promotions

Celtic super featherweight champion Anto Cacace has this evening confirmed that he has parted ways with Cyclone Promotions.

The talented Belfast star spent nearly two years with Barry McGuigan’s outfit, including a period being trained by Shane McGuigan in London.

Following rumours of contractual issues on social media, ‘The Apache’ released the following statement:

“Barry and I are parting company and I would like to express my gratitude to Barry and Cyclone for all the hard work they have put into me.”

The southpaw added that “comments on social media which appeared over the weekend have nothing to do with me and don’t reflect my views.”

“They [Cyclone Promotions] have a great stable of fighters and I wish them every success.”

Cacace, who has not fought since knocking out Ronnie Clark to win the Celtic title last October, is positioned at #3 in the British ranking and is sure to be highly sought after by both Irish and British promoters.
