THEY COMPETE AS GYM MATE AND UNDEFEATED FORMER WBC INTERNATIONAL, BRITISH AND NEWLY CROWNED EUROPEAN CHAMPION KID GALAHAD TAKES ON AUSTRALIAN CHAMPION FRED 'THE GENERAL' MUNDRABY FOR THE VACANT COMMONWEALTH SUPER BANTAMWEIGHT TITLE.

 

LEE NOBLE WILL PUT "HIS HEART ON HIS SLEEVE" ON MAY 10

 

Lee Noble will put his "heart on his sleeve" when he fights on the the undercard to Kid Galahad's fight for the vacant Commonwealth title, live on Channel 5.

 

The 27-year-old light middleweight, who has three straight victories to his name since returning to the sport in November, can feel"the momentum building" ahead of his fight on May 10 at Ponds Forge Arena, Sheffield.

 

 

 

 

"It's really good at the minute - I’ve always known and all the lads in the gym will tell you, that I’ve always had the talent and the ability but I haven’t been 100 percent focussed," Lee said.

 

"But, my mindset is completely different to two years ago – I want to succeed.

 

"My training is going fantastic, I can feel the momentum building, I’ve just got to keep going - I’m just going to take it one step at a time."

 

The Barnsley fighter, Noble, who has been sparring with newly crowned British light heavyweight champion Bob Ajisafe and former WBC world light welterweight champion Junior Witter, returned to the ring in November, after a one year absence, to give the sport his all and retire without any regrets.

 

Since returning, he boasts three straight victories, including a points win over local rival Dave Fidler for the International Masters light middleweight title.

 

"Since November I’ve been on it constantly, I’ve not been going out with my mates and I’ve told them all not to bother ringing me at weekends or anything," Lee said.

 

"All I want to do is box - a couple of years dedication and see where I get and that way at least I know when I retire from boxing that I did give it a go and I gave it my all.

 

"I want no questions, no stones unturned so that I know what I could have achieved and what I didn’t achieve.

 

"Everybody is looking at me in a different way – I want to box the best kids – I can’t get any more experience, I’ve boxed world champions, European champions, British champions – I’ve been in with the best.

 
"My heart is going on my sleeve and 10th of May you’ll see I’m going for it."
 

Lee fights on the undercard of fellow Ingle Gym fighter and newly crowned European super bantamweight champion Kid Galahad as he takes on Australian champion Fred 'The General' Mundraby for the vacant Commonwealth title.

"I want that first stoppage, I’m going to give it some this time, be nasty in there.

 

"I know I’ve got the power to knock anybody out - I’ve learnt from my six fights and this time I’ll put the pressure on, for definite.

Jordan ‘The Thrill’ Gill is feeling "brilliant" and “itching” to get back in the ring on May 10th at Ponds Forge Arena, Sheffield.

 

The undefeated 19-year-old super featherweight feels he is maturing and developing as a fighter and “can’t wait” to show the results on the undercard to Kid Galahad's fight for the vacant Commonwealth title, live on Channel 5.

 

 

"I’m feeling brilliant, I’ve been training now for weeks on end since my last fight and I’m itching to get back in and do it all again," Jordan said.

 

"I’m still only 19, I’m still developing and since my last fight I think my body has changed significantly - I’m filling out a lot more, getting stronger, I’m bigger at the weight and we’ll see what damage we can do on the 10th.

 

"I’ve been sparring with Kid Galahad, Leigh Wood, Atif Shafiq, I feel like I’ve improved since my last fight so I’m looking to showcase the results on the night."

 

Gill boasts a perfect record of nine straight victories and in his last contest won his first professional title, picking up the vacant British Masters Bronze light-welterweight beltwith an emphatic second-round knockout over Michael Stupart in Peterborough.

 

Jordan, who hopes to "follow in the footsteps" of the many champions that have been produced by the Ingle Gym in Sheffield, feels he is learning all the time and is motivated by the fighters training around him.

 

"I’m doing all the learning in the gym from the guys fighting for major titles soon," Jordan said.

 

"Like Kid Galahad, who has won the British title, the European title and now fights for the Commonwealth title in his last three fights.
 
"I’m watching every move and pinpointing what makes them successful and doing it myself and that’s why hopefully I’ll be successful and follow in their footsteps.
 

"In my last three fights I’ve been hit once, I’m practicing what I do in the gym in the ring and I think I’m going to get some hard fights now coming up and you’re going to see the best of me."

The 20-year-old lightweight feels he is "maturing physically" and is looking forward to "another big show" on the undercard to Kid Galahad's fight for the vacant Commonwealth title, live on Channel 5.

 

 

"I’m feeling really confident ahead of my fight on May 10th," Atif said.

 

"I’ve had some great sparring for this camp - the likes of Kid Galahad, Leigh Wood, Jordan Gill, Sam O’maison, Samir Mouneimne from Hull, so we’ve had a lot of variety.

 

"I’ve been doing a lot of strength and conditioning and I can feel myself filling out a bit more and maturing physically - Every time I go into a fight I’m feeling different and more mature as a fighter."

 

The Rotherham man, known as 'Unique' boasts a perfect 10 wins from 10 fights and in his last contest in March he overcame Michael Mooney over four rounds and admits it was a good learning fight as he looks to keep progressing.

 

"I felt really good last time out and my opponent wasn’t actually the weight I was meant to be fighting at and he had about half a stone on me," Atif said.

 

"It was another good learning experience, I enjoyed it and now I know that when I do fight someone my own weight it will be a lot easier, more comfortable and more natural to me - I’m excited and really looking forward to another big show."

CALLUM 'HITMAN' HANCOCK IS "ALL SYSTEMS GO" AHEAD OF MAY 10 FIGHT

The 23-year-old middleweight prospect is undefeated in five contests, boasting a perfect five straight victories.

 

In his last contest in March he overcome Steve Spence over four rounds and admits that it was the biggest performance of his career so far, as he returned to fighting after recovering from serious whiplash injuries sustained in a car accident that left him unable to fight for almost a year.

 

“It was a long time coming to get back in the ring following my accident, it meant everything to me,” Callum said.

 

“It was massive for me, I was absolutely petrified before my last fight, I was scared stiff and I’ve never felt like that before.

 

"I kept doubting myself – am I ready? Should I be doing this? Is it too soon? And I answered all the questions to myself which I was over the moon to do.

 

“In my training I was worried about doing something to my neck but this time I’ve been flying, so all systems are go for May 10th.

 

“In this game confidence is key, if you go in that ring doubting yourself, that’s it, game over – the demons have definitely been shrugged off the shoulders, I’m back and I’m happy.”

 

Callum fights on the undercard of fellow Ingle Gym fighter and newly crowned European super bantamweight champion Kid Galahad as he takes on Australian champion Fred 'The General' Mundraby for the vacant Commonwealth title.
