IT IS a fight that is bound to excited the boxing public.

Sheffield’s Kid Galahad, 22, takes on Liverpool’s James ‘Jazza’ Dickens, 21, to dispute the English superbantamweight belts.

The pair have identical records: 13 straight wins. So something has to give.

But Galahad (aka Abdul Barry Awad) has his eyes on a far bigger prize.

He is part of the Ingle dynasty currently grooming Kell Brook towards a world title match-up in America next month.

“I am not fussed about the English title” admitted the 22-year-old.

“I want to fight and I don’t mind who it is against, I won’t go in complacent. But I am not bothered about the English title.

“It is just a stepping stone. I’d like a British title more. But the only thing that really matters is a world title. And that’s what I am after.”

Galahad only boxed three times last year compared to five in 2011 and needs to get busier.

“No one will fight me” he said. “That’s the problem I face, the others duck and dive away from me.

“John Ingle (matchmaker) is doing his best to get me fights.

Hopefully I can get Carl Frampton (Commonwealth and IBF Inter-Continental title holder) and Scott Quigg (Interim WBA belt winner) soon.”
