Hughie Fury Moves Forward, Kid Galahad Wins Gold

By Alexey Sukachev

Ponds Forge Arena, Sheffield - Tyson Fury's younger cousin Hughie Fury (14-0, 8 KOs), a 19-year old hulking heavyweight, made another tiny step to the fame of his better known relative with a dull decision over barely capable Danny Hughes (12-3-2, 3 KOs) in an eight-rounder. The sole card of referee Jeff Hinds saw it 79-74 - for Fury. BoxingScene had it closer 77-75 - for the same fighter. The bout was hardly any memorable, looking more of a jabbing contest than an actual fight. Fireworks started with only thirty seconds remaining in the eighth round and didn't reflect a poor perception of this contest.

---------------

Talented Abdul Barry Awad, better known as Kid Galahad, once again proved his rightful place among the trio of the best British super bantams with a one-sided stoppage over Australian import Fred Mundraby (15-2-1, 7 KOs) after four complete rounds. With this win Kid Galahad (now 17-0, 9 KOs) added a vacant Commonwealth 122lb belt to his vast regalia, which also include BBBofC British, WBC International and European super bantamweight belts.

Kid Galahad, 24, was in firm control of the fight from the get-go. His speed, his precision and his desire couldn't be compared with those of Mundraby, who was going one or two divisions up for this fight. Galahad has gradually got bigger and bigger in the first three rounds. He was hitting Mundraby at will, adding some clinches and dirty action on the inside to frustrate the Australian even more. In the fourth, Mundraby tried to find any way out of this one-sided beating but the only exit has been found only after its conclusion, when the Australian retired on his stool for good.

Galahad is now looking more and more carefully to both Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton, although only future will tell if those collisions take place or not. In the meantime, Kid Galahad is expected to crack top tens of major sanctioning bodies sooner than later after this quality victory.
