Kid Galahad added the Commonwealth super bantamweight title to his European crown at the Ponds Forge Arena in Sheffield, England on Saturday when he forced Fred Mundraby to retire at the end of the fourth round.
Galahad completely dominated the fight from the opening bell against a very limited opponent and did not really have the opportunity to showcase his full arsenal of skills. Quite where the talented Galahad goes form here is anyone’s guess but one thing his promoter Mick Hennessy must do now is provide the Sheffield based boxer with a world top 10 opponent to bring the best out of him.
The 24 year-old local fighter extended his unbeaten record to 17-0-(9), while Mundraby drops to 15-2-(2).
On the Hennessy Sports promoted undercard young heavyweight prospect Hughie Fury gained invaluable rounds as he progresses by out-pointing experienced journeyman Danny Hughes over eight rounds. Referee Jeff Hines scored the bout 79-74 in favour of Fury, who improved to 14-0-(8), Hughes falls to 12-3-2-(3).
