Cave, eight years older at 32, has a W24 L2 record and hasn’t been beaten in three years.

Galahad (Barry Awad) said: “ I know he is a tricky customer. But we’ve got plenty of southpaws in the gym who are very similar to his style. We will do what we have to do.

“I know he has lost to Willie Casey (2010) but then (IBF champ) Kiko Martinez lost to Rendall Munroe (twice, Barnsley and Nottingham) so you can’t go on people’s records. “Since being beaten by Casey he has come on leaps and bounds and is the NABA champion and is number six in the WBA.”

Galahad isn’t concerned about the Nova Scotia man’s threat.

“It isn’t going 12 rounds, I will tell you that. I am going in for the kill. I have been working on stuff in the gym...he is going to get seriously hit. As I’m getting older I am getting stronger. I am not going to take no prisoners.”
