Kid Galahad, real name Abdul Barry Awad, first came to the gym after a chance meeting with former Ingle Gym fighter Prince Naseem Hamed. Self-admittedly Barry was constantly in and out of trouble as a youngster and envisions that without the sport he would have probably ended up in prison.

 

Barry and his friend went to a gym to train and to get bigger and saw a boxing ring, after shadow boxing for a couple of minutes it was then that he decided he wanted to start fighting. Within a week, in his local mosque in Upperthorpe, Sheffield, he approached Naseem and told him he was thinking about starting to box and was told: “If you want to be a champion and you want to be a good fighter you need to get yourself to Brendan Ingle’s gym,” Hamed said. That very afternoon his mother drove him up to find the gym and after meeting Brendan Ingle and son Dominic, he has never looked back.

 

His name Kid Galahad originating from when he and Brendan watched the famous film ‘Kid Galahad’ starring Elvis Presley.

 

The Sheffield super-bantamweight certainly looks the part when training in the gym. Learning his trade amongst some of the best to put on boxing gloves he has had quite the education so far and regularly showboats and embarrasses others when sparring in the ring. Since his professional debut against Delroy Spencer, where Galahad eased to a points victory, he has racked up 20 straight victories with 11 knockouts.

 

The Sheffield man, earmarked as a future star, is certainly starting to make his name known; impressing on bouts on Channel Five and winning the vacant IBF Youth, Commonwealth, European and British titles.

 

With Kid Galahad aiming to become a multiple weight world champion, he is certainly making all the right steps.
