Pro Boxer Tyler Canning Cannon will box Tyler Vogel for the sanctioned ABF190 Title, September 15th at the Event Center. Vogel Known more so as a MMA fighter, will try his hand in Casper against the well known Wyoming boxer, in Canning. Both fighters have been creating some noise in their back in forth, war of words on social media, which is consistent with Vogels M.O., but this situation has grown enough concern to give the promoter some possible anxiety for the weigh ins/face offs. Vogel’s last MMA bout he won, by KO. June 23rd, 2018 Canning, fought former 4x Boxing World Champion, Canning, winning the Bare Knuckle Cruiserweight Strap, also by KO (2nd round).
Canning starts his days off at 4:30 am with a run, then off to work on a Wyoming oil rig till 3:30pm then, training at the gym from 6:30-9:30 pm. Canning has struggled in recent years with weight, but has lost a considerable amount lately. When I inquired his secret or approach he took to achieve this lighter weight bout with Vogel, he said this:
“I use a keto diet. Stopped drinking pop, sweet drinks, and limiting carbs. I never realized how badly I ate, until I started counting calories. I realized then, holy shit I’m eating bad. One of my fights in the recent past was at 240lbs. In October I’m doing another Bare Knuckle bout at 180lbs. I’m pretty sure I can get down to around 160-168 after that. My days of 154 are over.”
When asked why Canning was doing more of the Bare Knuckle bouts vs Boxing he had this to say:
“If I can make extra money doing Bare Knuckle fights (in addition to boxing), I might as well.”
I asked Canning opinion of how this bout is gonna go and end with Vogel?
“I’m going to hurt him.”
