Kid Galahad plans to dedicate his European title performance to trainer and confidant Brendan Ingle on Saturday night.

The 24-year-old super bantamweight contests the Euro strap with Spaniard Sergio Prado at Ponds Forge Arena, Sheffield.

And Galahad, real name Barry Awad, can’t wait to move up a level and record his 16th straight win.

He particularly wants to give Ingle, who has overcome ill health problems recently, a night to remember.

“It’s going to be an unbelievable night – Brendan and my family are going to be there and it’s going to be a dream come true to pick up that title. I’ve always wanted the European title and me, Brendan and the rest of the team are going to be happy” said the boxer.

“If it wasn’t for Brendan I wouldn’t be where I am today, I wouldn’t be the person that I am and I wouldn’t be in the position that I am. I’m dedicating this performance to my family and to Brendan and my team. It’s not going to be an easy night, this guy is going to come and resist. But I’ve got to go in there and take him apart. He’s come to win, I’ve come to win, there’s a big title on the line so it will be a good night.”

Also on the bill is the MaxiNutrition Knockout second set of quarter finals as Travis Dickinson takes on Danny McIntosh and Matty Clarkson fights Lee Duncan.
