FORGING CHAMPIONS SINCE 1964

Witter: There will be fireworks between Galahad and Dickens

 

Updated 28th August 2013

Junior Witter has backed Kid Galahad to come out on top in “excellent” and “hard fought” British title showdown with Jazza Dickens.

 

The former WBC world light welterweight champion, Witter, who trains alongside Galahad (real name Abdul Barry Awad) in the famous Ingle Gym, predicts “fireworks” when the pair clash at the Magna Centre, Rotherham, September 14th live on Channel 5 from 8pm.

“There’s definitely going to be fireworks, Barry can punch hard, so can Jazza and they’re both coming to land the big shots,” Witter said.

 

“There’s no doubt about it, there’s going to be some real excitement in that fight.”

 

Kid Galahad, 23, is the unbeaten WBC International super bantamweight championand is already drawing comparisons to former Ingle Gym fighter Prince Naseem Hamed, but Witter warns he cannot afford to overlook the undefeated English champion, Dickens, 22.

 

“It’s not an easy fight, it’s not a foregone conclusion – Jazza will be calm and confident, he knows he’s the underdog and he’s coming to win,” Witter said.

 

“I know the calibre, I’ve seen the skills - he works to a game plan and will have studied Kid Galahad, he’s coming for him and Barry’s got to be on it, there’s no two ways about it.”

 

Both fighters are highly skilled and highly motivated, with Galahad boasting 14 wins with seven knockouts, to Dickens’ 16 wins with five knockouts and Witter sees the clash of two hungry fighters as a potent mix.

 

“This fight is an excellent fight – it’s the skills, the moves, the talent – they’ve both got flashy styles, they both can move, they both can bang and it just gels really well,” Witter said.

 

“Galahad is ready for this fight, he’s training like a demon, he’s on it.

 

“He isn’t interested in messing about, he’s focussed on being champion and making the next move.

 

“It’s going to be a great fight - closer than people are expecting, but Barry’s going to come out on top - I just think it’s going to be a really hard fought fight.”

 

Also supporting Galahad when he fights for the British super bantamweight title at Magna, will be hot middleweight sensation Chris Eubank Jr in his 11th professional contest and current World Youth super-heavyweight champion Hughie Lewis Fury in his ninth outing as a pro, as well as a whole host of local talent on the undercard.
