Top of the bill, in Rotherham, last night was a tasty encounter for the vacant British super-bantamweight title.

It pitched two unbeaten fighters, in Kid Galahad against James Dickens.

In a scintillating encounter that saw Dickens start well and push Galahad back, the Liverpudlian was probably leading on the score-card.

However, in round 10 a punishing left hand from Galahad sent Dickens crashing to the canvas. Arising before the count hit ten, it was noticeable that the referee, Mark Green, was contemplating stopping the contest but was saved from doing so when Dickens? corner pulled their fighter out.

Commenting on his success, Kid Galahad, as brash and as outspoken as all those fighters that emerge from the Brendan Ingle camp, had this to say,

‘I knew he was going to come out fast and he charged around like a bull, but when I found my distance… boom!’

Although he?s the new British super bantamweight champion, Galahad still has several flaws in his make-up with Dickens catching him far too easily, but with power like that in his left hand he?s definitely one to watch.
