Sheffield’s unbeaten Commonwealth and European Super Bantamweight Champion Kid Galahad will be back headlining at Ponds Forge on Saturday 20th September.
The night of championship boxing will be shown live on Channel 5 in the UK.
Galahad, who back in May added the Commonwealth strap to his growing collection after a blistering performance stopping Australian Fred Mundraby in 4 rounds was hoping to be facing the WBA World Super Bantamweight Champion Scott Quigg in his next contest.
Kid Galahad said “Straight after my last fight my promoter Mick Hennessyoffered Quigg by far a career best purse to face me in my home town in September live on Channel 5, but we are still yet to hear back officially from his promoter with an answer, so I’m guessing by the silence they are not prepared to take the fight as they know he will lose his world title to me in a brutal way.”
"If Quigg really believed he could beat me he would of grabbed this kind of exposure on terrestrial TV with both arms."
"As a world champion you can run but you can’t hide."
"I’m really looking forward to September 20th and my team are looking at world ranked opponents and we will have this sorted in the next few weeks.” Kid added.
Details on the exciting undercard will be announced soon.
