Emerald Promotions are excited to announce that they have secured a fight for their unbeaten Irish super featherweight champion Anthony Cacace 6(3)-0-0 against British ranked number 10 fighter Kris Hughes 16(2)-3(2)-0.
“This is a great start for 2013, and will see Cacace climb to the top, Cacace is ranked number 8 and Hughes is number 10 so this has the making of a real classic between to hungry and determined fighters”
It’s been rumoured that Gary Buckland is thinking of vacation his British title which leaves both boxers the opportunity of a big title showdown.
Chris Graham told Irishboxers.ie “This fight is worthy of TV coverage and it’s a possibility that the fight could be on the undercard of the Frampton V’s Martinez show in Belfast, but if that falls through we will have it on one of our shows in March or 6th April in Belfast, I know Kris Hughes team would like the fight in London or Scotland but I’m sure we can bring this to the Belfast fans”
Emerald Promotions and KO Promotions are also looking at running some “Small Hall Style Shows” in Dublin in 2013 including a St Patricks day card with the possibility of Phil Sutcliffe, the son of legendary amateur start and co owner of KO Promotions Phill senior making his pro debut on one of the shows.
