Kid Galahad Feels Ready To Battle For World Title

KID GALAHAD believes he is ready for a world title shot after claiming his third belt in eight months. The Sheffield super-bantamweight added the Commonwealth title to his British and European crowns by beating tame Australian Fred Mundraby inside four rounds on Saturday night.

Galahad, 24, now wants a world title shot within the next year as his stock continues to grow.

He said: "I've won the British, European and Commonwealth titles inside eight months. I'm learning slowly but surely and now I'm ready for the world.

"I want the world title. I'm not sure what route is best for me, but there is no stopping me. I will get what I want."

Galahad may have to wait though and watch domestic rivals Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton get the big fights first.

Both are keen to land a shot at WBC champion Leo Santa Cruz or IBF king Kiko Martinez and are ahead of Galahad in the pecking order.

But the Qatar-born fighter predicts a domestic trilogy for the future.

He added: "I think it can happen. When Carl Froch retires, we can be the big dogs in British boxing."
