Tyson Cave Injured, Pulls Out Of Kid Galahad Clash

By Shaun Brown

Sheffield’s Kid Galahad 17-0 (9 KOs) will have to look elsewhere for international experience after Canada’s Tyson Cave 24-2 (8 KOs) pulled out of their Sep 20 Commonwealth super bantamweight contest due to injury.

Galahad, who has also won the British (now vacated) and European 122lb titles will still fight that night at the Ponds Forge Arena in Sheffield, to be broadcast in the UK on Channel 5, but promoter Mick Hennessy now has his work cut out to get a credible opponent with just under three weeks to go.

With Carl Frampton due to challenge IBF world champion, Kiko Martinez on Sep 6 and WBA ‘regular’ champion, Scott Quigg returning to action one week later (himself without an opponent too) Galahad had hoped that a win over Cave would begin his ascent on the world rankings.

The Sep 20 show also sees the return of the unbeaten hard hitting Yorkshire middleweight, Adam Etches 16-0 (13 KOs) when he faces off against Samir Santos Barbosa 35-10-3 (25 KOs) for the vacant IBF International middleweight title.
