Galahad aims for the perfect ten

Have your say

KID Galahad is intending to round off an impressive season on another big bill.

The Ingle fighter, aged 21, has won all seven of his fights so far. Two have been by knockout and in his points victories he’s won every round.

Upperthorpe’s Galahad -real name Barry Awad - wants to maintain this record on the undercard to Dereck Chisora v Tyson Fury at Wembley Arena tomorrow against an opponent yets to be named.

He told The Star: “I don’t think I’ve fought anyone who has been at my level yet. I was supposed to be having a good name for this fight on Saturday but Ian Napa and Mike Robinson didn’t want it. I want to be tested before I get to the top level and if I can win every round tomorrow I’ll be doing well.”

Galahad has been very active this season. He’s fought at his natural super-bantam and heavier at super-feather. Another win will give him a further boost up the rankings and the youngster has an eye on next season and a title as a super-bantamweight.

“The plan is to get to ten wins and then go looking for a title, he said. “There’ll be two Sheffield shows later this year. One with the Hattons and one with Kell Brook so I’ll be on them and then I’ll be on the tenth win and hopefully in line for a British title fight.”
