Unbeaten Sheffield puncher Kid Galahad will take on Fred Mundraby for the vacant Commonwealth super bantamweight title next month.

The 24-year-old, who has won four of his last five contests by knockout, faces Mundraby, nicknamed ‘The General’, at Ponds Forge Arena on Saturday, May 10.

“Mundraby is a game opponent and he’s coming to win, but it doesn’t matter what he does, it’s not going to be enough to beat me,” Galahad said.

It promises to be another big step up for Galahad, who claimed the European crown earlier this year by recording the 16th win of his unblemished record, with a 12 round masterclass over former Spanish champion Sergio Prado.

He said: “I’m not looking past Mundraby; I know he will be coming with a game plan and he’ll be confident, but when I enter that ring I know what I need to do and I know I can push myself to do whatever it takes to win.

“I want to win this belt for everyone that comes and supports me. It means everything to me and I appreciate all of them.

“This is another belt for my collection and it’s another step to where I want to be and that’s in the big fights at world level.”

Galahad, is chasing a world title and is out to show why domestic rival and WBA champion Scott Quigg will want “no part” of him.

“I’m going to show exactly why Carl Frampton vacated his European title rather than fight me and why Quigg and his promoter daren’t even mention me in the same sentence,” he said. “I know they want no part of me.”

Also scheduled to fight on the show is undefeated heavyweight sensation Hughie Lewis Fury as he looks to extend his perfect record to 14 straight wins. Joining them will also be a whole host of local talent, including Sheffield’s Dave Howe, Callum Hancock, Tom Mcassey and Ryan Hardy, Barnsley’s Lee Noble, Rotherham’s Karl Bell and Chatteris fighter Jordan Gill.
