Cacace ready to turn on the power again

Anthony Cacace says he is ready to give another explosive performance when he returns to the ring in Liverpool tonight.

The unbeaten super-featherweight faces Lithuanian Simas Volosinas in a six rounder as he seeks to continue revitalising his career under the guidance of new coach Shane McGuigan.

McGuigan, who coaches IBF World super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton, has been working hard on changing the Belfast man's overall approach to the sport and Cacace admits he is still learning.

"I can't wait to get into the ring and face this guy. I had a good win at the Titanic show and I'm ready to put on another good performance," said Cacace.

"Things have been going great with Shane, I've been learning a lot about what it really means to be a professional and to be honest I know I still have a lot to learn. But everything has been going great and all being well I can look ahead to some tough, 50-50 fights in 2015.

"I want to be right up there facing the best, I know there are a lot of good fights out there for me in Britain."

Coach McGuigan isn't expecting Volosinas to be easy, despite his journeyman status.

"He's a tough guy, the only time he has been stopped is when he has stepped out of his natural weight class and up to lightweight and light-welter," said McGuigan.

"If Anto manages to get him out of there that will be a good statement because he has been the distance with good British guys such as Martin Ward but I just want to see him put in a good performance."
