Anthony Cacace’s jab hit Lyon Woodstock with so much cold reality it would be no surprise if he left Birmingham with frostbite. This was an awakening. Not only for a game Woodstock but also the British boxing fraternity of just what the Belfast man has to offer.

Cacace retained his British super-featherweight title with ease and this 21 months on from his last bout when in the same city he demonstrated his grit to overcome world rated Sam Bowen to lift the Lonsdale belt. Woodstock had previously put up solid challenges to Commonwealth champion Zelfa Barratt and Archie Sharp – currently ranked higher in the WBO ratings than the Belfast man – but this was a comprehensive beating he could never have imagined.
