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.

Simon Barclay speaks to BoxRec News from Klitschko's Champ Camp

Heavyweight world champion Wladimir Klitschko is preparing to face Australian Alex Leapai on 26th April and as usual he has chosen the familiar surroundings of the Austrian Alps. Just hours after winning his professional debut at the Copper Box in London, 24-year old Corby cruiserweight Simon Barclay was on a plane to join up with him in what the Ukrainian calls 'Champ Camp'.

Fight Reports

Brentwood’s ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (6-1) got back on track with a close points win over Peckham’s Diego Burton (4-4-1) over ten rounds at the York Hall on Saturday. It was a belter of a fight on a slightly smaller than usual Goodwin bill, partly due to 'Flash' Ashley Sexton not making weight again (more on this later) and 'Big Dog' AJ Carter’s opponent, who reportedly turned up with Evo-Stick holding his mooey in place.
