Ringside report: Kid Galahad puts on another great performance to win Commonwealth gold

galahad534By Ian Aldous: This past Saturday night, former British champion and undefeated Kid Galahad (now 17-0) added the Commonwealth super-bantamweight belt to his European title with a destructive performance against the three-weight Australian champion, Fred Mundraby, at the Ponds Forge Arena in Sheffield, England, live on Channel 5. I was at ringside to cover all the action for BN24.

Going into the fight on Saturday, it had only been seven weeks previous that Galahad was last in the ring when he expertly dispatched Sergio Prado with a great display of his pure boxing talent to claim the vacant European championship. It’s refreshing to see a fighter willing to fight so regularly in this day and age.

Galahad was particularly bullish pre-fight when asked about British compatriot and current WBA super-bantamweight champion, Scott Quigg. “I believe that him and his trainer will want no part of it (a fight between the two), as Quigg is probably still having nightmares from our last sparring session, as we both know what happened there!!!” The name of Scott Quigg would arise post-fight as well.
