Matchroom inks Kid Galahad

Kid Galahad has signed a multi-fight promotional deal with Eddie Hearn and Matchroom Boxing. The Sheffield star (28-1, 17 KOs) turned in a superb performance on Saturday as he clinically stopped Liverpool’s Jazza Dickens in eleven rounds to claim the vacant IBF crown at the top of the bill on Fight Camp Week 2.

Trained by Dominic Ingle out of the famous Ingle Gym, Britain’s latest World Champion is targeting supremacy at 126lbs, and has already called for unification fights with the likes of WBC ruler Gary Russell Jr. and WBO Champion Emanuel Navarrete.

“We’ve been working closely with Kid for some years now but it’s great to make it official and sign a multi-fight deal at this exciting stage of his career,” said Matchroom Sport Chairman Eddie Hearn. “His performance on Saturday was faultless and stands him as one of the seven British world champions in boxing right now. I’m looking forward to the future and seeing him in some big unification fights.”

  • They have a lot of options at featherweight now. As long as they don’t do a rematch with Warrington, it should be interesting.

  • He seems to have really grown into his style very well. I think he will be very difficult to beat. The main concern is he could still lose on the cards in a balanced fight, if his opponent is deemed more aggressive (like the Warrington fight).

  • Have to be honest I thought he was already with Eddie.
    It’s great for KG that he finally got there but I’m not sure too many will be queuing up to put it on the line against him. Hard to see , hard to beat.

  • Kid Galahad put out 1 of the worst beatdowns Ive seen in a good while. That was what you call a “glove whipping”. Seems like he carried him just to beat him good to the body in the later rounds.
    Dickens will go into anxiety, fight or flight anytime he even smells leather.
    We’ll see in time, but doubt Dickens will have much anything left after that fight.

  • Not a fan of PED cheats, even if it was years ago. Excuses like “my brother spiked my smoothie”, or “I ate bad meat” just don’t carry much weight in my book. The successes of such fighters are suspect both before and after a known offense. Boxing needs zero tolerance on the PED front. I would like to feel good about congratulating a fighter for their success, but it just does not feel right under the cloud of past PED use.
