Alex Dilmaghani believes a fight with British champion Anthony Cacace will carry world ranking implications.
The British Boxing Board of Control, last week, ordered Belfast’s Cacace to defend his super featherweight crown against Dilmaghani before the end of December.
Dilmaghani is ready to accept the challenge and says he has nothing to fear about facing the title holder.
“This is a great fight and, as great a belt as it is, it is worth more than just the British title,” Dilmaghani said.
“Cacace is ranked in the top 15 in the world rankings and so this is a terrific fight.
“I want this fight; I don’t shy away from any fight and so I will be only too happy to oblige and challenge him.
“I respect Cacace, he’s a good fighter, but I don’t fear anything about him.”
