Carl Frampton’s main event was set to for Saturday February 27, live on BT Sport. Despite the headline fights cancellation, the show will go ahead as planned at the Copper Box Arena with the British super featherweight title clash between Anthony Cacace and Lyon Woodstock headlining the card in a much-anticipated dust-up.
Defending champion, Anthony ‘The Apache’ Cacace, won the British belt on the second attempt, having first lost a close decision to Martin J Ward in 2017.
Ward won the belt outright with the UD win then collected the European title in his next fight. From Belfast, 31-year-old southpaw Cacace rebuilt with two points wins before upsetting the champion Sam Bowen (15-0) in his home show in Birmingham with a split decision win in November last year. In his maiden defence, he entertains challenger Lyon Woodstock, 26 from Leicester. The London-born ‘Lion’ tasted defeat twice within eight months when he first lost his unbeaten record to an enthused Archie Sharp (13-0) in a 10-round battle for his WBO European super featherweight belt in October 2018. Then, he challenged for the Commonwealth strap against Zelfa Barrett (21-1) in June last year and was outpointed widely over 12-rounds.
