KID GALAHAD is convinced he has the mental capacity to come out on top in his British title clash with Jazza Dickens.

The two unbeaten super-bantamweights meet at the Magna Centre in Rotherham on September 14 in about that will be screened live on Channel 5. And Sheffield puncher Galahad believes he is more than a match for Liverpudlian Dickens in what promises to be a cracking contest.

Winner Galahad - real name Abdul Barry Awad - has won all of his 14 professional contests, with seven of those victories coming inside the distance.

The WBC international champion said: "I have the necessary mental strength to succeed. That, tied to my physical ability, makes me a winner.

"The only way anyone is going to lick me is by killing me. Everything is on the line. Pressure either makes you or breaks you - and it makes me. I have the mental capacity to handle it. I like pressure, so I don't mind at all when people put pressure on me."

Galahad, 23, is confident he can overcome Dickens, 22, who is also unbeaten with 16 straight wins, five of them coming via knockout.

He said: "Jazza is a tough kid and he's hungry and he's going to come with everything he's got, but my levels and my class are going to be too much for him."

Supporting Galahad at Magna will be middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jr and current world youth super-heavyweight champion Hughie Fury.

- DARREN Barker is ready to put his new IBF middleweight title on the line in a Battle of Britain with Martin Murray.

Barker, 31, stunned Aussie Daniel Geale to claim the crown in Atlantic City.

He said: "Martin Murray is a good bloke and me winning this belt could well set up big fights, like one with him."
