Galahad calls out Quigg

Kid Galahad is hoping to face WBA super-bantamweight champion Scott Quigg later this year.

Galahad has picked up three vacant belts in the last two years, including the British and European titles in his last two fights.

And although he is rated only the third-best super-bantamweight domestically, the 24-year-old believes he is ready to challenge one the best in the world.

"Let's face facts, I'm the upcoming star in the super bantamweight division," Galahad said. "I'm undefeated and I'm hungry for the big fights - I've held the WBC International belt, the British title and I've just won the European title and I'm about to add the Commonwealth to my collection.

"If Quigg comes through his fight on Saturday night, which he should, my promoter Mick Hennessy is going to make him and his management a substantial offer to defend his WBA title against me, in either July or September live on Channel 5.

"I'm ready and willing to fight and if Quigg really believes he can beat me, why not come and do it in front of the biggest audience possible on terrestrial TV.

"I hope he agrees to the fight and gives the fans exactly what they want, a mouthwatering world class domestic showdown.

"But, me personally, I believe that him and his trainer will want no part of it, as Quigg is probably still having nightmares from our last sparring session, as we both know what happened there!"

Galahad returns to action in Sheffield on May 10.
