Queensbury regional Welterweight champion Anthony Ayinde has fired out a warning at title challenger Lee Cannon ahead of their February 6th showdown, telling the contender to concentrate on the fight rather than talking big in the build up.
Ayinde will make the first defence of the title he ripped away from former champion Danny "Relentless" Stalford in the main event of the league's opening show of 2016 at the Millenniun arena in West Sussex, and after producing a career best performance last time out, the Surrey based champion has warned Cannon that the best is still to come and the challenger will find that out the hard way when the pair collide.
Talking ahead of the showdown the Kingston based champion said, " Lee Canon is a big talker and thinks he's going to put me to sleep, but that's got me even more fired up for this fight and I'm looking to knock him out now.
" I've seen Cannon box a few times and he's a completely different type of fighter to Stalford, but he's not boxed anyone like me before and when he steps in that ring and actually has to try and fight me, he's going to realise I'm a difficult puzzle to crack"
" For this fight I'm aiming to show something different, and instead of being the backfoot boxer I'm looking at coming forward and chasing Cannon down and finish him inside the distance"
Ayinde versus Cannon will headline the league's stacked "Who Dares Wins" promotion taking place on Saturday February 6th at the Copthorne Effingham Park Hotel in West Sussex, and tickets for the show are now on sale priced at £35, £60 and £75.
