Sheffield boxing rivals: friends for now!

It was a case of friendly fire when Sheffield’s Kid Galahad met Australian Fred Mundraby this afternoon.

The two competitors in Saturday’s Commonwealth title boxing showdown at Ponds Forge were courteous and respectful with each other at the event at Napoleon’s Casino, Owlerton.

Galahad even put his arm round Mundraby for a press photograph!

It was a pleasant departure from some of the scenes we have witnessed in press briefings and weigh-ins, in the sport.

But the pleasant vibe ends on Saturday.

Galahad is a huge 33-1 favourite with some bookies to add the strap to his Commonwealth title.
