Barry McGuigan is enjoying seeing his young stable of fighters closing in on titles.

His first signing Carl Frampton claimed the IBF World title last year and on October 16 Anthony Cacace will fight Ronnie Clark

for the Celtic title in Edinburgh and on November 20 another of his fighters Conrad Cummings faces Alfredo Meli for another Celtic title in Belfast.

McGuigan’s Gym in Battersea in London also has Josh Taylor and Josh Pritchard making great strides and McGuigan says things are going well.

“The gym is buzzing at the minute and all the lads are working really hard and are all looking fantastic. We have a stable of champions here,” he added.

And the former World Champion says Cacace will show his pedigree against Ronnie Clark in Edinburgh.

“Anthony is looking great and I have never seen him so committed. He is buzzing and he is knocking lumps out of guys in sparring.

“He is very talented and he punches really hard. He will get the job done in Edinburgh,”

And McGuigan says Cummings will be one to watch in the coming months.

“He is a very ambitious guy and he wants to be headlining shows and be in the spotlight.

“He does not want to just make up the numbers and I believe he will go on to Commonwealth and British title fights after November 20,” he added.
