Former QBL novice Welterweight champion Lee "The Loose" Cannon has warned regional champion Tony "Macaroni" Ayinde that he'll be going to sleep early in his first title defence, as Cannon prepares to face the newly crowned champion on February 6th.
Mitcham's Cannon will collide with the champion at the opening show of the 2016 season in a clash that the Mitcham man has fancied for some time, and after watching Ayinde perform live in his last couple of victories, Cannon his confident he'll be shooting down Ayinde and making it an early nights work for himself.
Cannon was last in action back in September when he produced a conclusive finish to his clash with late stand in Andy Cosnett finishing the veteran in the second round of the contest, and after securing his shot at Ayinde, Cannon believes he's seen too many mistakes in the champions game for him to lose.
"This is going to be an interesting fight on February 6th against Ayinde, but if he fights like he did against former champion Danny Stalford then I'll put him to sleep early, said the challenger.
" I've watched a few of Ayinde's fights and he looks like he's grown in confidence and skills since his second win over Kane Baker, but I know he's not fought anyone like me before and he'll know that when we meet next year.
" I'm not going to give away too much right now but he's going to struggle with my movement and hand speed which I know will give him problems, so I can't wait to get in that ring and face him.
Cannon's challenge for the Queensbury regional Welterweight title will take place on Saturday February 6th at the Millennium Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel, and tickets for the opening show of the year will go on sale on December 14th from the QBL box office on 0203 751 8599
