Carl Frampton has poured scorn on Sheffield’s Kid Galahad saying: “You’re not Naseem Hamed.”
British super bantamweight champion Galahad (aka Barry Awad) had suggested that Frampton was avoiding him, by relinquishing his European title, a trinket Galahad has his eyes on.
But Frampton said: “Barry likes to talk and he thinks he is Prince Naseem, but he is not. Prince Naseem could punch and was a fantastic fighter. Barry is not Prince Nassem.
“I have bigger fights on the horizon and I am looking to fight for a World title in the coming weeks. Why would I want to take a step backward?”
and fight Barry?”
Galahad is training to take on Spain’s Sergio Prado for the European title.
