After being named mandatory challenger for the European title, rising Sheffield super bantamweight talent Kid Galahad (15-0) looks forward to a exciting 2014. In this video from Hennessy Sports, which captures him training at the Wincobank Gym, Galahad talks about Carl Frampton’s decision to vacate the title rather than take the fight with him, as the Belfast ‘Jackal’ chases another match with the now-IBF champion Kiko Martinez.
“I just don’t understand why you would give a title up if you think the fight was such an easy fight. Everybody wants to see that fight. It’s a 50-50 fight,” said the British champion, real name Barry Awad, who captured the domestic title with a tenth round stoppage of James ‘Jazza’ Dickens in September.
“Personally, I don’t believe (Frampton) has the confidence to beat me. I know he doesn’t, and I know Barry McGuigan doesn’t.
“For the next six months, he has to wait. He’s higher in the world rankings, but he has nothing to bargain with.”
