Steve Lillis' Friday Boxing News Round-up

24 Jan 2014

Kid Galahad

HENNESSY SPORTS have won the purse bids for Kid Galahad's (left) vacant European super bantamweight title showdown against former Spanish champion Sergio Prado.

The Sheffield boxer, 23, won the British title last year stopping Jazza Dickens and is already chasing WBA  regular champion Scott Quigg and Carl Frampton who relinquished the Euro crown.

"Barry is a superb fighter, he is undefeated, the former WBC International super bantamweight champion, a British champion and I am proud and excited to deliver this fight for him,"  said promoter Mick Hennessy.

"I truly believe Barry is a great talent and destined for big things and this is the next step for who I consider to be the future of the division."

Hennessy hopes to stage the clash against Prado who has a 9-3-1 record, in March.


Ricky Hatton

RICKY HATTON is helping the homeless get a roof over their heads by cycling to the roof of Europe.

The four-time world boxing champion will take part in the 140km La Mont Blanc cycle on July 20 in order to raise money for Manchester-based charity Barnabus.

Hatton has already begun his training and is aiming to be in peak condition for the gruelling task.

"Often, when I'm out in Manchester, I see people sleeping rough and it's really upsetting," he said.


Luke Campbell

OLYMPIC gold medallist Luke Campbell (right) will face Norfolk's tough Scott Moises when he has his fight in hometown Hull on February 22.

Local rival Tommy Coyle who he could face later this year risks his IBF International lightweight title against Argentine Daniel Brizuela.


SAMMY CANTWELL, the son of former British flyweight champion and world title challenger Mickey will have his third pro fight at the Camden Centre.

The super-flyweight has won his first two fights without dropping a round and promoter Mick Helliett believes he can reach the top.
