ANDREW CAIN IS blasting a trail of destruction through the super bantamweight division and intends on doing much the same at bantamweight.
After demolishing all but one of the opponents put in front of him, the Liverpool man seized his first title belt last year by becoming the new WBC International Silver super bantamweight champion.
He poleaxed the usually durable Pablo Ariel Gomez with pretty much his first shot of the fight in Telford last time out and subsequently carried the appearance of an agitated prizefighter who had too much left in the tank.
Gomez, it should be noted, was last stopped back in 2014 in two six-rounders early on in his career in his native Argentina, so being clubbed to the canvas was not a familiar experience for him.
This time it was all over in an official time of 19 seconds when you take into account the count and referee John Latham’s assessment of his ability to continue.
His next fight in May 2022, a defence of his WBC belt, came against the normally formidable Mexican Luis Moreno, who promised he would be fighting fire with fire when he stepped into the ring at London’s York Hall.
Moreno was chopped down and stopped in just over two minutes and twice put to the canvas.
Cain is considering his options moving forward as he believes he will enjoy even more advantages a weight down. A frightening prospect for the bantamweight division.
