Top featherweight contender and former title challenger Kid Galahad has promised a spectacular win, when he takes on former sparring partner Jazza Dickens in the main event of MatchRoom Fight Camp week 2 on Saturday, August 7th in Brentwood, Essex.
Galahad (27-1, 16 KOs) looks to show, he lent from his mistakes in his first title attempt against former world champion Josh Warrington. Warrington won Galahad the fight with a very close Split Decisions that could have gone either way.
Galahad was able to bounce back from his first professional career loss with a win over Claudio Marrero and will be hoping to achieve his long time goal of winning a world title when he takes Dickens (30-3 11 KOs), whom he previously stopped in their British super Bantamweight fight back in 2013.
Galahad looks to repeat that win against his friend Dickens but this time, he wants it spectacular and could afford pushing his friendship aside just for one night.
“I’ve actually done about 60 or 70 rounds with Jazza Dickens, probably more!” said Galahad. “When I boxed Marrero, I sparred Jazza. I’ve known him for a long time, we’re friends. Any time I ever fight a southpaw I always spar with Jazza because he’s a good southpaw. At the end of the day, when we get in there, friendship is going to be pushed to the side and that’s it. Seek and destroy, that’s it. I’m not here to make friends and everything else. When I get in there I’m here to win. I don’t care who you are.
Galahad admits Dickens is a good fighter but believes he is miles ahead of him and has won better fights and familiar Foes in a better fashion than him.
“Getting in with me is a different kettle of fish to getting in with all of them guys who he’s boxed” Galahad said. It doesn’t matter who he’s boxed. I believe I box in a higher category and I believe that I’ve taken less punishment than him. I believe that the wins I’ve got I’ve done in better fashion than he has.
“He’s very good. He’s well rounded and he can do a bit of everything. I just believe that I’m better than him in every little department. Whatever he does I can do better. He can say that he’s got the momentum and everything else. He can have the momentum – it doesn’t mean anything does it.
Galahad believes that Dickens will definitely come with his best but when the bell rings, everything between them will be put aside, making no mistake as he plans winning the title in a spectacular fashion.
“When we get in that ring on it’s just going to be me and him in there, nobody else. That’s when it’s going to matter. I’ve done it the hard way, and I’m going to win this World Title in spectacular fashion. I’m going to be a World Champion for a very long time. I’m not going to let it go.
