Galahad boxes Spaniard on Saturday night

Kid Galahad is looking to take his perfect record to 13 straight wins when he meets Spaniard Ivan Ruiz Morote in an eight round contest this Saturday (8th Dec) at the Sports Arena, Hull.
The international contest will be shown on Channel 5 from 10pm.

Since his professional debut in 2009 Galahad, 22, has taken his record to 12 wins with five knockouts, no losses and no defeats. He is currently in training camp in Fuerteventura.
“Can’t wait until Saturday night, he is a seasoned pro, so this is a great test for me. The fight fans will see that I’m the best super bantamweight in Britain and Europe.
“I’m really looking forward to putting on an impressive performance against Morote live on Channel 5.”
Morote, the WBC Latino featherweight champion fought for the vacant EBU-EU super bantamweight title in 2011 and represents another step up for Galahad. His record stands at 15 wins from 17 contests with only two defeats and he boasts seven knockout victories to his name and has also won the Spanish featherweight title.
Headlining at the Sports Arena will be the WBC Silver title contest between European champion James DeGale MBE and former world champion Fulgencio Zuniga. Supporting will be middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jr (out for the second time in a week, if he boxes).
The action packed undercard will feature Hull's Samir Mouneimne Jr who will be challenging the Scottish Area super featherweight champion David Savage over 10 rounds in a British featherweight title Eliminator and Hull based fighters, Ricky Dudding, Nathon Smith, Joel Haigh, Goole's Zac Collins and Jordon Gill from Chatteris.

Crolla V Murray

A lot of people consider the lightweight bout taking place in Manchester this weekend between Anthony Crolla (27-4-1) and John Murray (32-2) to be a very close call indeed. The contest, in UK's second biggest city on Easter Weekend, is for the WBO lightweight Inter-continental title, but the significance of the result means more than the marginal title as it will put them a step closer to a world title fight. Even if this isn't immediately forthcoming, the division is stacked in Britain, and can throw up some massive domestic scraps.

Crag Whyatt v Ben Moorish, Camden Centre, 11th April

Last Friday at the Camden Centre, Morden super featherweight Craig Whyatt (7-1) liquidated Plymouth’s Ben Morrish (3-8-2) in the first round to bag the Masters Bronze super featherweight belt. This was scheduled for eight, but when Morrish tried to turn it into a brawl he quickly came off second best after Jeff Hinds halted proceedings following his third knockdown.
