Shane McGuigan: Cacace doesn’t know how good he is

ANTHONY Cacace was highlighted as one to watch when he impressed his way to 8-0 and picked up the Irish title with a first round stoppage of the tough Mikey Coveney in just his fifth fight.

Indeed, such was the super featherweight’s performances that he collected the Irish Prospect of the Year Award and trophy that Jamie Conlan, Carl Frampton and Marc McCullough all have.

However, new coach Shane McGuigan claims that impressive career opening was just the tip of the iceberg and Cacace and is adamant there is a lot more to come from a fighter, who returns to the ring for the first time since late last year on the massive Titanic Showdown card this coming Saturday.

“He hits the pads harder then anyone else I have done pads with,” Shane McGuigan told the Belfast Newsletter.

“Anto has great potential and we are now just working on his diet and his fitness. His diet before he came here was awful and he is now getting the hang of eating and living clean.

“He doesn’t know how good he is and there is so much more to come from him,” he added.
