After Hennessy Sports successful purse bid to host Kid Galahad’s contest for the British super bantamweight title against James ‘Jazza’ Dickens, Mick Hennessy announced today that the fight, will top the bill in a night of championship boxing at the Magna Centre on September 14th.
The bout will be broadcast live on Channel 5 from 8.00pm.
This is a contest between two very talented and undefeated super bantamweights, as Galahad looks to extend his perfect record to 15 wins and add to his WBC International super bantamweight title.
"It’s a dream come true fighting for one of the best belts out there, the British title, I can’t wait," Galahad said.
"I’m feeling good, feeling strong, feeling sharp - I’m still in good condition from my last fight and I’m ready for September."
In his last contest Galahad outclassed and outgunned the resilient Isaac Nettey at Glow, Bluewater, to give the African fighter his first stoppage defeat in a now 31-fight career.
Already, comparisons are being made between Galahad, 23, and former Ingle Gym stable mate and former world champion Prince Naseem Hamed.
After winning the WBC International title in less contests than it took Hamed and less than even multiple-weight megastar Manny Pacquiao, Galahad is certainly living up to expectations.
But the 22-year-old Liverpool man, Dickens, is confident in his abilities and will certainly not be an easy night for Kid.
