Sheffield fighter Kid Galahad is certain about two things ahead of the Tyson Fury v Wladimir Klitschko re-match on July 9.

One: Fury will win, again. Two: his own performance will earn rave reviews around the world.

The 19-match unbeaten super bantamweight wants to make up for lost time after returning from a drugs ban.

And he can’t wait to take part in what will be the biggest show on earth. “It will be good for my profile, it’s the biggest heavyweight fight in the world” he said. “Fury will win. Klitschko cannot change his pattern, he always sticks to what he knows but Fury is a different kettle of fish to anyone he has fought before and he is too good for him. The whole show is on Boxnation, it is not like Sky TV where they have only got so much time, so my fight will be broadcast in America on HBO, across Europe, Al Jazeera, all over the world.”

The Wincobank boxer stopped limited Lithuanian Simas Volosinas in his return-match. “He was a journeyman, and I needed to get him out in a couple of rounds. They are trying to get me a decent Russian kid from my next fight- maybe his isn’t a world beater but hopefully he will stay with me for eight or ten rounds, so I can get the rounds in.

“It is important that people remember my fight, even though it is on the Fury bill. This will not just be a tick-over fight for me”.
