Boxing: Kid confident of putting on a successful show

In an era when boxing is seldom on television Kid Galahad says that he deserves to be one of the lucky few.

“Not every boxer gets the chance to be on TV but who else are they going to put on? I’m a special talent and we belong on the big screen,” declared the 23-year-old from Upperthorpe.

His confidence, often mistaken for arrogance, along with his stock, will rise yet further should he claim the British super-bantamweight title on Saturday night at Rotherham’s Magna Centre.

In his way is another unbeaten prospect in Liverpool’s James Dickens. Southpaw Dickens has had two more fights but scored two less stoppages. He does not frighten Galahad.

“He looks like a strong, tough kid and I’m sure he’s got a good plan but that will all change when he gets hit,” he said.
