Anto Cacace
[15(7)-0] came face-to-face with British champion Martin J Ward this afternoon in London ahead of their big double title fight this weekend.

The pair will meet over twelve rounds on Saturday night for the Lonsdale belt held by Ward [17(8)-0-2] and the vacant Commonwealth title.

The bout forms part of the Poxon Sports undercard to the Chris Eubank v Arthur Abraham IBO title fight at the Wembley Arena, live on ITV pay-per-view.

The build up to the fight has been relatively quiet, although the pair have traded occasional barbs on Twitter, with Cacace seemingly having riled up the Leeds boxer of Irish descent.

The two met today for a sit down chat with Mark Pougatch today where they had some heated exchanges before facing off.

It was a feisty enough head-to-head and this will be ramped up further at the weigh-in tomorrow, an event which will hopefully be attended by plenty of Irish as the final stop on the Mayweather-McGregor press tour takes place at the same venue afterwards.

Watch Anto Cacace and Martin J Ward go head-to-head below:
