Kid Galahad and his mentor Brendan Ingle

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.
