Albone warns Cannon his time is up

Queensbury Boxing League - Albone warns Cannon his time is up

Light-middleweight title challenger Steve Albone has warned champion Lee Cannon that his reign as regional king is on borrowed time.

The 35-year old jeweller from Croydon will face Mitcham rival Cannon next Saturday night when the pair contest the title at the 2017 season finale.

Albone has made a big impression in the competition with his dynamic performances, including a narrow defeat at the hands of newly crowned National Light-Middleweight Champion Kane Baker. And he now has his eyes firmly set on acquiring the Regional title held by Cannon when the duo finally go head to head at the aptly named “Dynamite” show.

“I'm looking forward to performing at the season finale more than any fight I've ever had before" said Albone.

“It may sound cliché but this training camp has been the best I've ever had. I've been so focused on my training as there have been no distractions outside of the ring and I am completely injury free.

“Boxing is as much mental, if not more so, as it is physical and my mind is spot on for this fight. I'm in the best shape that I have ever been in and my coach Martin down at Dynamo Boxing in Croydon has really pushed me harder than ever."

Cannon will make the first defence of the title he won back in July after beating rival Jimmy Haughney in one of his best performances, but Albone is confident his game plan will see Cannon lose his status as champion at the final show of the year.

“I have seen Lee fight a few times. He looks strong and very fit but I will be focusing on what I need to do rather than what he does or doesn't do. I've studied his style and I have seen weaknesses which I will be exploiting on November 4th.

"I learned so much in my fight against Kane Baker. Although I lost the fight the experience I gained was invaluable and I think Kane would agree that I gave him a hard fight. I have seen and noted my mistakes that night and they won't be happening again.

“I’ve improved after each fight I've had on Queensbury and on November 4th you are going to see the best Steve Albone to date. I’ve the upmost respect for Lee as he’s been on the Queensbury platform for many years, but I’ll be taking his belt home on November 4th!”

Albone versus Cannon headlines an explosive night of Queensbury Boxing at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel on Saturday November 4th. For further information on the event call the box office on 0203 751 8599 or visit www.queensburyboxing.co.uk
