Undefeated featherweight contender Kid Galahad 26-0 (15) has hit back at Josh Warrington 28-0 (6) after the IBF featherweight champion questioned whether he had earned his title shot.
The 28-year-old Galahad is the mandatory to Warrington’s world title. The fight between Galahad and Warrington has been signed with the date and venue yet to be confirmed.
“He is a very emotional person and his dad is a very emotional person,” Galahad told Behind The Gloves.
“I can see his dad chucking in the towel. He is going to try to bring it when we get in there and I am going to beat him up very badly. And I think between the sixth or seventh round his dad will chuck the towel in.
“When we get in there you will see.”
The Sheffield native dismissed Warrington’s doubts over his championship calibre.
“I’ve more than earned my stripes,” said Galahad. “We’ll have to wait and see. When we get in there I will show him there are levels. They can believe what they want to believe.
“And if he doesn’t like me, he doesn’t like me. It’s a fight they didn’t want.
“The good thing is the IBF stick to the rules and regulations, They’re probably the strictest of the governing bodies. You have to fight the mandatory.
“He was in a position where he had to fight me. I’ve been training for this moment for all my life, I won’t be denied.
“If I had to fight in his dad’s living room, with his dad as a judge and his brother as a judge, I’d do it and make sure I win.”
