By Terence Dooley

It was a case of "What the dickens" this week when popular Sheffield fighter Kid Galahad decided to withdraw from the purse bids process for the vacant English super bantamweight title, which has nixed a mooted showdown with domestic rival James "Jazza" Dickens. John Ingle, the matchmaker for Hennessy Sports, today confirmed that Galahad, 13-0 (6), will instead concentrate on defending his WBC International title and is in the running for an outing on the undercard of James DeGale's March 23 appearance at Glow, in Kent's Bluewater shopping and leisure centre.

Liverpool's Dickens, 21, will remain in the running for a crack at the title, but a meeting with his 22-year-old rival remains a dream for the time being.
