Lee Cannon ready to his achieve National title ambition

Queensbury Boxing League - Lee Cannon ready to his achieve National title ambition

LEE CANNON claimed John Falzon is the only thing on his mind right now, as the two prepare to battle for the National light-middleweight title. 

The National l title fight will be staged on the undercard of the Queensbury Boxing League's ‘Capital Shakedown’ bill, staged at the Troxy, in London, on November 24. 

Cannon suffered a devastating points loss back in November 2017 against Steve Albone on the ‘Dynamite’ show, however, in June of this year the Mitcham man got back to winning ways as he outpointed Brighton Wolf Griffiths for the Regional light-middleweight title. 

The Like2Box fighter admitted returning to winning ways was important for his career, but he also cited every fight is as important as each other. 

“For me every fight is important to win,” Cannon said.  

“The only fight I’ve lost in the last three years was against Albone and I still think to this day I didn’t lose. 

“But it’s one of those things, you take it on the chin and you move forward. So to get the win against Wolf and to walk out there with the Regional belt it meant alot. 

“To wake up in the morning to see my youngest daughter with my belts there is the same kind of feeling that I’m looking to retain this time around for the National." 

Cannon has won gold at Novice and Regional level at both welterweight and light-middleweight, and the two division champion claimed reaching the heights of the National title was always his goal. 

“I’ve always aspired to reach the National, and there’s only been a few fighters in the league that have managed to obtain all the belts from Novice, Regional and National,” he said. 

“I’ve obviously come from welterweight, I’m now light-middle, so to be a three time champion and two different weights is a great accomplishment. 

“To cap it off now it would be for me to get the National and get all the belts, that’s pretty much what I need to do." 

Despite Cannon’s eagerness to secure a rematch with Albone, the 29 year-old admitted Falzon is the only opponent on his mind right now. 

“I wanted the Albone rematch this time around, but unfortunately for personal circumstances this time around Albone couldn't commit to the time and training that he felt he needed to. 

“Providing things go the way I think and I know they’re going to go, we can get it on next year. 

“But right now I’m not thinking about Albone, I’m thinking about John and doing what I need to do and walking out there National champ.

“We’re going to prepare ourselves for every occasion. I know he sometimes likes to come forward, but he can box a little bit also. So we’re going to be prepared for whatever he has. 

“If he wants to come forward, then that suits me just fine, I like coming forward and meeting people in the middle. 

“If he wants to box, then once again I’m fine with that as well. I can box, I can fight, no matter what he brings we’ll have something there.”
