FIGHING fit and ready for action - that’s Kid Galahad and Jason Booth at Sheffield’s Meadowhall weigh-in ahead of their Saturday night showdown, writes Graham Walker.
Sheffield boxer Galahad weighed in at 8st 9lbs 10oz, just a 1lb more than Nottingham’s Booth, at 8st 8lbs 14 oz.
They fight for boxing’s WBC International Super Bantamweight title, 12 three minute rounds, in The Star backed Hennessy Sports promoted Men Of Steel event at Magna Centre in Rotherham, on Saturday, February 18.
It will be broadcast live on Channel 5 from 10am.
Also on the bill is Doncaster’s Jason Ball (11st 9lbs, 2oz), who believes boxing fans will be in for a treat when he takes on the much talked about Middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jr (11st 8lbs, 4oz) - who is hoping to follow in the footsteps of his dad, the former British boxing legend.
