Need help with cutting diet (whilst keeping energy up for boxing & mma)

I am going to cut quite soon, the problem is I do a lot of cardio (boxing, mma and running) nd so I am not really going to be following a 'typical' BB style cutting diet
 
I need to know how to keep my energy up for 2hr+ boxing and MMA sessions whilst also maximising fat loss!
 
Training is (roughly-it changes a lot)
 
Mon- AM Weights PM Boxing
Tues- AM Running PM MMA
Wed- AM Weights PM Boxing
Thurs-AM Running PM MMA
Fri- AM Weights PM Boxing
Sat- 'Crossfit' (Insanely hard fitness thingy)
 
If I just go low carb I feel I will not be taking enough calries in to give myself the energy to do all the training, with also the possibility of my body clinging on to bodyfat if it goes into stravation mode (something I have been warned about by a couple of people elsewhere when talking thru it)
 
What would be the best was to cut my BF right down with that training schedule?
 
I am currently 100kg looking to lose 10-15kg with minimal muscle loss if possible and without it impacting too much on my energy levels for fighting
 
Thanks in advance for any useful input

    whats your current diet like? how do u fuel your training at the moment?

    id just look at taking some of the cals out (mainly taking carbs out) around parts of the day where u are not training so in the afternoon then have some carbs before training

    or

    u could just cut the carbs down through out the day but keeping them spread out in every meal

    Just reduce current diet down gradually until you start to see fat loss. You will still be able to eat quite a few cals with all that exercise in there. No need to go low carb. Just lower portions a bit.

    My current diet is very sporadic and unstructured at the monmet so I guess I also need help planning a diet..so following my current one and reducing cals isnt much of an option

    My main problem is eating too much b4 cardio/boxing so I am sluggish and obviously all I do is burn off the food I ahve eaten, or I eat too little/dont fuel it properly and I am knackered too quicly

    well then just adjust what u eat now. eat inbetween what u do when u eat too little and too much and u should see an improvement.

    Bump for this...

    Would it be feasible to do a carb ctycling diet whilst maintaining that sort of training programme or is there too much in there to have no carb days (I couldnt really see how I could fit a no carb day in apart from on a rest day)

    Thanks
