Lee Cannon has warned Queensbury novice Welterweight champion Tom Knight that he is “Bang in trouble” ahead of their highly anticipated title rematch next month on the league’s huge Edge Of Greatness promotion.
The pair were last in action together back in April on British Eurosport when Surrey’s Knight edged out Cannon in a sensational all action affair to claim the league’s vacant novice Welterweight title, but after watching the fight back many times Cannon still believes he should have got the decision and is now determined to rectify that mistake on November 24th by dethroning the champion.
“I’ve watched the fight back at least a hundred times now and analyzed it in detail, and although it was a tough close contest, I still think I won it, declared Cannon.
“I think there were things in that fight that I could have done better that would have made the decision clearer in my favour, but since that fight I’ve gone away and worked on so many things that have improved me as a boxer, and I think in my last fight against Stuart Goodwin in September I proved beyond doubt that I’m a much better fighter now”
Cannon’s last outing in the league back in September proved to be one of the Mitcham mans finest performances to date, after comprehensively dominating old rival Stuart Goodwin in a contest many had tipped Goodwin to win, and with preparations right on schedule, Cannon is more than confident of reversing the result from his previous meeting with Knight.
“This time around I’m feeling fitter, stronger and better in all departments of my game, and if Tom Knight thinks he’s facing the same fighter he fought back in April then he’s bang in trouble”
“I think this is going to be a cracking fight again and will probably go the distance, but at the end of the fight it will be my hand that is being raised and taking that title home”
Cannon’s title challenge will feature on the packed undercard of boxing taking place at the Effingham Park Hotel near Crawley in West Sussex, and with fourteen other bouts scheduled to feature on this bumper night of action, there will be no shortage of entertainment for fight fans to enjoy.
