Tyson Fury undercard against Dillian Whyte takes huge blow with Anto Cacace axed from card 'as he is MTK fighter'

FEATHERWEIGHT boxer Anthony Cacace has confirmed he will no longer be fighting on the Tyson Fury vs Dillian Whyte undercard.

SunSport understands the reason he has been axed from the show is because he is a fighter for MTK Global.

MTK was co-founded by alleged mob boss Daniel Kinahan.

The 33-year-old had been scheduled to take on Colombian Jonathan Romero.

But in a blow to the Fury vs Whyte undercard the 19-1 fighter will no longer step foot inside the ring, despite three months of training away from his family.

Cacace vented his fury on Twitter after being cut from the event, blasting the decision as a "f***ing kick in the teeth".

"What an absolute f***ing kick in the teeth.

"Boxings broke me many times but this time just feel shattered. F*** boxing!!"

Cacace's scheduled fight against former IBF world champ Romero was for the vacant WBO International title.

Kinahan, a former advisor to Fury, was named as the head of the "murderous" Kinahan Cartel by the United States Government.

He was accused of sourcing and selling "large quantities of cocaine from South America" across the globe.

Fury this week has been under pressure to renounce Kinahan after the WBC slashed ties with him.

The Dubai-based ‘businessman’ has a £3.8million bounty on his head from US forces for allegedly running a "murderous" drugs empire.

The 44-year-old helped broker Fury a two-fight deal with Anthony Joshua in 2020 – only for it be cancelled – and had lunch with the Gypsy King in February.
