Kid Galahad-Tyson Cave on September 20 in Sheffield

London - Commonwealth and European champion Kid Galahad will defend his Commonwealth super bantamweight title against Canadian Tyson Cave* on Saturday 20th September in Sheffield.

The night of championship boxing from Ponds Forge sponsored by MaxiNutrition will be shown live on Channel 5.

Cave from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada is ranked number 6 by the WBA and Galahad is expecting that an impressive win over the ‘Prince of Hali’ will propel him up the WBA ratings and ultimately give him the world title shot that he craves against title holder Scott Quigg.

Kid said “If I’m honest I haven’t seen much of him but that isn’t a problem as come the 20th September in that ring I will be prepared for anything.”

“I’m looking forward to jumping over Cave in the (WBA) ratings so eventually Quigg will stop running and will be forced to fight me.” Galahad added. 

Cave, the 32-year-old NABA super bantamweight champion said  “He has never been in the ring with an alien like me. Everything that he's trying to do, I’ve perfected.

“He (Galahad) should stop trying to be like the prince, there's only one prince in the game now and that's the Prince of Hali.”

Galahad’s promoter, Mick Hennessy said “This is a genuine step up in class for Kid, if he wins this fight in style like I believe he can, I will be pushing for a world title fight for him.”

Popular Sheffield fighters Adam Etches and Scott Jenkins will also be in action along with local fighters Atif Shafiq, Sam O’Maison, Callum Hancock, Bradford’s Golden Boy, Nadeem Siddique and Team Fury fighters Isaac Lowe and Tyson’s cousin Dempsey Fury.

The packed crowd will also see highly regarded featherweight prospect Yusuf Safa from Bexleyheath in action.

Tickets for the Hennessy Sports promoted event at Ponds Forge, Sheffield, priced at £35 general admission and £100 ringside are available to purchase by calling the SIV ticket box office on 0114 223 3777.

Tickets are also available from www.sivtickets.com or in person at the Sheffield City Hall, Crucible Theatre and Motorpoint Arena Sheffield.

[B][COLOR="DarkRed"]I was hoping after Richie Woodhall's mention of Cave a couple of times on Channel 5 that this fight would be made. His mention of Shingo Wake was a bit of a stretch.[/COLOR][/B]
