Hennessy: Galahad Will Go After Frampton and Quigg

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

PROMOTER Mick Hennessy has warned Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg that Kid Galahad is closing in on them. Galahad – real name Barry Awad – faces fellow unbeaten Jazza Dickens for the vacant British super-bantamweight title in his home city of Sheffield on Saturday.

Galahad’s British rivals are further ahead in their careers as Quigg challenges for the WBA world title on September 28 and Frampton defends his European belt on October 19.

But Hennessy insists 23–year-old Galahad will this weekend prove he is ready to take on either Quigg or Frampton and believes they are fights that can happen next year.

He said: “Dickens is a dangerous fighter but this is the fight Galahad needs for people to sit up and take notice of him.

“We want him to go on and fight for the European title late this year and then we will be looking at the likes of Frampton and Quigg because he is better than the pair of them.

“He’s not only ready for them now, he will rise to the occasion and do it in style. Frampton and Quigg are fights we are going to pursue very quickly.

“But I want to get Kid Galahad a bit more exposure before we make those fights, so we bring a lot to the negotiating table. He won’t fight them on anybody’s terms.

“But it’s not about holding him back – he beats the pair of them tomorrow – it’s about getting him more exposure over the next two or three fights.”

Unbeaten Brighton middleweight Chris Eubank Jr, 23, will face Sheffield’s former ABA champion Liam Cameron over eight rounds on the same bill.

Kid Galahad v Jazza Dickens is live on Channel 5 on Saturday.
