Lyon Woodstock has accussed Anthony Cacace of running from him after it emerged their long since proposed British title fight was off again.
According to the British Boxing Board of Control the cursed fight was reshecudeled for Frank Warren’s Saturday, June 5th, BT Sport-broadcast show in Telford.
It was the fourth date and fourth show associated to the voluntary defence.
Cacace [18(7)-1(0)] was set to defend his British super-featherweight crown against Woodstock [12(5)-2(0)] last October, but that clash was called off on fight week.
It’s was the second time the fight has been pushed back. The 32-year-old was initially penciled in to fight his promotional stablemate on the top of a TV bill in July only for a dental issue to force that postponement.
February 27 was the next date agreed upon but Woodstock tested positive for Covid and that fight was called off just days shy of the first bell.
It’s seems the fight was then penciled in for early next month – but ‘The Lion’ claims the champion has pulled out.
Speaking on Twitter, the would be challenger suggested the titlist wasn’t keen because due to weight issues – and labelled the Lonsdale belt holder an ‘unworthy champion’.
He took to Twitter to vent, tweeting the following:
So mr @AntoC6 has pulled out again with a month to go 😂 it’s getting funny now, guess the reason? he can’t make weight. Embarrassing your a professional athlete you should be living this life, your an unworthy champion. I could lose a fucking stone in a month buddy 😂— Young Simba 🦁 (@LyonWoodstockJr) May 12, 2021
…before following it up with more insults:
So to conclude @AntoC6 is a giant pussy, can’t keep the weight down but can knock them beers back ay lad 👀 case closed, when the lion roars the hyena run 🦁— Young Simba 🦁 (@LyonWoodstockJr) May 12, 2021
Cacace has remained silent with regard to the June 5 date but there are rumours he has something bigger lined up. The 32-year-old world title hopeful has been linked to the Gary Hyde managed European Champion Samir Ziani, and has recently called out Archie Sharp.
