Right road: Anthony Cacace can take the next step on a path to a world title shot

Pat Magee knows all about the pitfalls of managing and directing the right pathway for fighters, so the importance of this Saturday night's bout for Anthony Cacace is all too clear.

Cacace makes the first defence of his British super-featherweight title against Lyon Woodstock at the Copper Box Arena, London. At 32 years of age and ranked ninth in the WBA, there is more riding on the fight than the Lonsdale belt; a money-spinning future is on the line for the Belfast man.

The sport has seen quite a few upsets in recent weeks, with fellow Belfast man Sean McComb losing a Commonwealth lightweight title shot, Josh Warrington suffering a first loss to Mexican outsider Mauricio Lara, rising English star Josh Kelly stopped by David Avanesyan last weekend and across the Atlantic the WBC super-feather belt changed hands when Oscar Valdez stunned Miguel Berchelt.
