Coach McGuigan: Cacace is ready for the best in Britain

SHANE McGuigan still see’s some room for improvement in exciting prospect Anthony Cacace. However, despite admitting there are some creases to be ironed out the World title winning coach believes his latest charge is right now ready for the best domestic fighters out there.

The former Irish super featherweight champion and Irish Prospect of the Year winner fought for the second time under the Cyclone Promotions banner in Liverpool on Saturday night and pushed his record 10-0 with victory over Simas Volosinas.

McGuigan, who has proved instrumental in Carl Frampton’s World title winning success, was impressed with what he saw and claimed his man is ready for anyone in Britain right now.

Speaking to David Kelly in the Belfast Telegraph Cacace said:

“Anto has the ability to make many fights one-sided and it’s the same with sparring sessions – we have good guys come in and because of his power and boxing ability he just dominates them.

“I believe that he’s ready for anyone in Britain right now, but he is still learning and the way I look at it, he’s just had two wins with us and we have a lot to work on.He has great potential and we’ll keep him very busy in 2015 so he really pushes on..

“When I look at the top British guys like Liam Walsh and Gary Sykes I have no doubt Anto can handle them. He is very big for the weight and punches really hard.
