Kid Galahad Captures Crown, Dickinson Drills McIntosh

Ponds Forge Arena Sheffield, England - Kid Galahad (16-0, 8 KOs) continued his rise in the ranks with a lopsided twelve round unanimous decision over Spaniard Sergio Prado (9-4-1, 3 KOs) to capture the vacant European super bantamweight championship. The scores were 117-111, 118-110 and 120-108. Galahad was too fast, too strong and too skilled for Prado, who showed his chin by lasting until the distance.

Travis Dickinson progressed to the semi-finals of the MaxiNutrition Knockout tournament with a third-round stoppage of Danny McIntosh.

Dickinson, who will face Matty Clakson for a place in the final of the eight-man light-heavyweight competition, dominated a slugfest in Sheffield to win the vacant English title.

McIntosh was knocked down in the first round after taking a straight right hand to the top of the end but recovered to land some decent shots of his own before the bell sounded.

Dickinson continued to tee off with the right hand in the second round, although McIntosh was still getting though with his fair share of power punches.

But McIntosh was put down again, this time in much heavier fashion, after being drilled with an overhand right in the third round and although he beat the count a short left soon put him back on the canvas.

He managed to get back up for a third time but was on rubbery legs and referee Terry O'Connor waved the fight off.
Plan

"After the first round I knew (the knockout) was going to come, it was just a matter of when," Dickinson told Channel 5.

"It was just a matter of keeping boxing, not losing my head and everything went to plan - I boxed really well."

The win sets up a clash with Clarkson in the last four after the Central Area champion defeated Lee Duncan on points in the night's other quarter-final.

In a much cagier contest than the brawl between McIntosh and Dickinson, Clarkson stretched out a lead on the scorecards over the first half of the fight.

Home-town fighter Duncan did finish strongly, catching his opponent with a couple of good shots in the final round, but was too far behind to turn things around.

At the conclusion of the 10 rounds, Clarkson was favoured 97-94 on the referee's scorecard.

Former World Boxing Council junior welterweight champion Junior Witter (42-7-2, 22 KOs) is back in the win box, by dominated Max Maxwell (16-41-3, 3 KOs) over six rounds. The sole score from the referee was 60-54.

The kid can box, that's for sure. I think I saw him all of 3 times. Really smooth boxer, extremely quick feet and reflexes. Not a great counter puncher yet. Not a lot of power. From what I can tell…
