Queensbury regional welterweight champion Anthony Ayinde has guaranteed there will be "Fireworks" in the ring on Saturday night, when he defends his title against confident challenger Lee Cannon.
Ayinde will make the first defence of the title he ripped away from former champion Danny Stalford in the main event of the league's opening show of the 2016 season at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel, and the champion believes that his sparring in the build up to the fight will be far tougher than anything Cannon will throw at him when the pair collide.
In the build up to the fight, Cannon a former novice champion himself has been very vocal in his prediction that nothing will get in his way of ending the reign of Ayinde, but in response Ayinde has promised to send the challenger back home empty handed after showing him just why he's the regional ruler.
Talking exclusively to QBL TV in his fight week interview Ayinde said, " I don't care what Lee Cannon has done before in the league and how well he's prepared for this fight, when he steps into that ring he's going to find out the hard way why I'm the champion"
" I've been preparing for this fight all over Christams and the New Year and sacrificed everything to make sure I'm in the best possible shape, and I can guarantee him the people I've been sparring with have been far harder than anything Cannon will bring"
"I've been a champion before in the league and the feeling I felt when I lost that belt was the worst feeling I've ever had, and there is no way I'll be feeling like that again on Saturday night and people coming to watch are really going to get their money's worth in this fight"
Ayinde's title defence will headline the league's opening show of the year this Saturday night in the millennium arena of the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel, and for ticket information contact the shows Box Office on 0203 751 8599.
