Anthony Cacace has pulled out of his fight later this week.

The British super-featherweight champion had been set to defend his belt on Saturday night.

Cacace, 31, is from Belfast in Northern Ireland and has a record of 18-1 with seven quick finishes.

‘The Apache’ was in line to face Lyon Woodstock, the former WBO European champion in the 130-pound division, exclusively live on BT Sport, as part of the latest behind-closed-doors offering from promoter Frank Warren at the BT Sport Studios in Stratford, London.

But it was revealed on Monday that the fight –– originally set to happen in July –– has been postponed again due to an illness being suffered by Cacace.

Cacace would have hoped that a win against Woodstock (12-2, 5 KOs) would being him a step closer to a fight against Archie Sharp, who has previously outpointed Leicester’s Woodstock, but the show will go ahead without the fight.

Warren, the show’s promoter, has said that the fight will once again receive a new date and venue once it’s suitable.

Liam Williams will top the card while he waits for a shot at the WBO world middleweight titlist Demetrius Andrade, defending his British bauble at 160 pounds against Andrew Robinson, his mandatory challenger, while there is also action for Commonwealth super-welterweight champion James Metcalf who will take on former English champion Jack Flatley.

Undefeated talents Mark Chamberlain, Dennis McCann and Michael Burke Jr. will box on the card, while there is a return to the ring for former Central Area super-bantamweight champion Muheeb Fazeldin, Nathan Gorman looks to get back on the horse against Richard Lartey following last July’s crushing defeat at the hands of British heavyweight champion Daniel Dubois and Scotland’s former world amateur champion Willy Hutchinson will be in action over 10 rounds despite having been set to vie for the vacant IBF European title at super-middleweight.
