Undefeated puncher Kid Galahad has promised to wow his home crowd when he faces Sergio Prado for the vacant European super bantamweight title later this month.

The Ingle boxer challenges Prado, who is a former Spanish champion and the current EBU-EU title holder, at Ponds Forge, Sheffield, on March 22.

Galahad, who turned 24 yesterday, is keen to emulate Naseem Hamed, who won the bantamweight title at the Sheffield venue 20 years ago and then went on to conquer the world.

“I can feel myself developing and getting stronger all the time and I’m going to show that in this fight,” he said.

“All I care about is my next fight and my fans and I’m going to show them what level I’m on at Ponds Forge.

“I feel like I could be facing anyone and believe me Prado is in for one tough night.”

Galahad, real name Barry Awad, is aiming to extend his unbeaten record to 16 bouts. He has won his last four duels by knockout.

“I finished last year strong by picking up the British title and next stop is starting 2014 strong by winning the European on March 22nd, with another tremendous performance.
