Kid Galahad survived an early scare as he recovered from a flash first round knockdown to comfortably beat the experienced Jason Booth, and claim the WBC International Super Bantamweight crown.
Galahad, who has drawn many comparisons to Prince Naseem Hamed, looked classy throughout the bout and showed no signs of tiring as he went 12 rounds for the first time in his career.
Like Naseem, Galahad is mentored by legendary trainer Brendan Ingle, who he credits for turning his life around and it is clear to see that like Nas he has the potential to be a star.
As the contest went on Galahad grew in confidence and displayed the super quick hand speed and combinations that has everyone excited about this young prospect.
Growing up in the Ingle gym Galahad has been surrounded by Champions and will know what it takes to make it to the top.
Junior Witter, Kell Brook and Johnny Nelson were all ringside last night and would have been impressed with how easily Galahad handled the step up in opposition. Booth is an experienced fighter who has previously fought for a world title and Galahad handled him with relative ease.
The Sheffield man’s record now stands at a perfect 11-0 and the exposure on national TV last night would have only enhanced his reputation further.
Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg are championed as the starlets of the division, whilst the experienced Rendall Monroe looms large but Galahad shouldn’t be overlooked as he looks to take himself all the way to the top.
