KID Galahad is not short of confidence or sporting swagger.

But he knows he would be foolish if he underestimated this weekend’s opponent.

The unbeaten Ingle bantamweight faces Isaac Nettey on the undercard of the James DeGale v Stjepan Bozic fight at Bluewater, Kent.

Nettey (W21, L8, D1) has boxed only once outside his native Ghana. That was a 12-rounds points defeat to Rendall Munroe in Sunderland 2009.

Nettey has won his last seven fights, all in 2012.

“All fighters from his part of the world are tough and very strong” says Galahad, who is seeking for his 14th consecutive victory.

“Look at boxers like Joshua Clottey (former IBF welterweight champion.) Nettey will be coming over here to bang - he’s coming for a fight.

“But I will have the speed, timing, accuracy and co-ordination to do the job.”

As always, Galahad, or Abdul Barry Awad, is hoping to impress a growing audience of fans on Channel 5, on the Hennessy show.

“This is a late notice fight but it doesn’t matter because it is against a decent kid and I’m going to put on a show. I’ll break him down and then take him out. I will be poetry in motion.”

Also on the bill is Sheffield middleweight Tyan Booth, who could upset the odds against Chris Eubank Jr. Killamarsh’s Lee Connelly boxes Sean Dodd in Liverpool tomorrow (see video on Lee at
