One of Sheffield’s hottest boxing talents is back - and ready to go all the way to the top.

Ingle fighter Kid Galahad (Abdul Barry Awad) returned to the ring following an 18-month doping ban.

The Wincobank powerhouse failed a drugs test for the banned substance stanozolol after beating Adeilson Dos Santos in September 2014.

His defence that a family member had spiked a protein shake led to a two year ban being reduced to 18 months by the United Kingdom Anti-Doping agency. And the super bantamweight - who had been challenging the likes of Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton before his ban - returned to action at Wigan Athletic’s DW stadium last weekend.

It was a walk in the park for the 26-year-old. In four rounds, he stopped Simas Volosinas, a Lithuanian journeyman - with a won six lost 46 record, with a classy display. Galahad’s return was praised by the likes of Kell Brook, Junior Witter, Johnny Nelson, Sam O’maison and Lee Noble. The fighter now resumes his plan to conquer the world.
