Sheffield’s Kid Galahad feels he has some catching up to do.
The European champion seeks to add the Commonwealth strap to his collection on Saturday at Ponds Forge, in a 12-rounder against Aussie Fred Mundraby.
Galahad is in the ring a month after his two big domestic rivals hit the headlines.
World title hopeful and Belfast banger Carl Frampton KO’d Mexican Hugo Fidel Cazares on April 4. Scott Quigg then successfully defended his WBA World super bantamweight title last month against Tshifhiwa Munyai 15 days later.
Galahad fancies his chances against either, eventually. He said: “Quigg did good in his fight, he took the kid apart. The same with Frampton, he did a job on his opponent and now I need to do a job on mine on May 10.
“I’m too dangerous and I’ve got the style to make them look bad, I’ve got the style to beat them. A fighter like me, you don’t know what to expect” he said.
“I think I’m on a world level and when I go in that ring I’m going to show I am. It’s a good fight, the kid is tricky, he had a good amateur pedigree. I can change it up and whatever people bring I can go in their and adapt and change my style to whatever I have to win.
“I can do a bit of everything, I’m an all-round fighter. I love fighting in front of my home town, the atmosphere is always good, everybody comes and shows their support” said the Ingle boxer.
“Mundraby is dangerous, he’s got loads of experience in the amateurs and the pros, he’s strong, it’s going to be a hard fight. I don’t like losing no matter what it is or who it is – I have to win.”

n Amir Khan made his debut in Kell Brook’s welterweight division with a unanimous decision victory over Luis Collazo. Khan was looking to make a statement in the 147lb ranks as he attempts to lure Floyd Mayweather - who became the unified WBC and WBA welter champ on Saturday but was given one of the toughest tests of his career in a majority victory over Marcos Maidan.
And the 27-year-old Bolton man knocked down the experienced Collazo three times in a near punch-perfect performance on the Mayweather-Marcos Maidana undercard in Las Vegas.
Two judges scored the bout 119-104 while the third had it 117-106 to reflect the dominance of Khan, whose superior hand speed proved the difference in a bout that was for the lightly-regarded WBC Silver welterweight title.
