Galahad ‘in limo’ over next fight

Kid Galahad has admitted that he does not have the first idea who his next opponent will be.

Galahad has recently been made the mandatory challenger to European super-bantamweight champion Carl Frampton - who successfully defended over the weekend against Frenchman Jeremy Parodi in Belfast.

The Upperthorpe prospect does not believe that Frampton, nor his British title mandatory challenger Gavin McDonnell from Doncaster, will want anything to do with him.

In a sort of limbo, Galahad wants to fight for the European title and defend his British but thinks he will continue to be avoided.

He said: “He (Gavin) doesn’t want it. I know that and the boxing public know it too. “Frampton will vacate as soon as he hears I’m mandatory. ”

Ingle-trained heavyweight Carl ‘The Fridge’ Baker got his first win since 2009 by upsetting Paulius Kasiulevicius in the first round at the York Hall, Bethnal Green.

Kasiulevicius, a two-time national champion in his homeland of Lithuania, was 2-0 with two knockouts but was shocked and floored when Baker landed a sharp combination.

Sheffield-based Kuwaiti Anwar Alfadli also got a rare win at the same venue. He dropped debutant Joe Stevens on the way to a points win.

Like Baker, Doncaster heavyweight David ‘White Rhino’ Allen scored an early KO win himself in Houghton-le-Spring.

Allen wasted little time with Hungarian Oliver Nagy and ended the contest in 45 seconds to move onto 4-0.
