Super bantamweight Kid Galahad, real name Abdul Barry Awad showed last weekend just what an exciting prospect he is, against the previously unstopped Isaac Netty.
Galahad was utterly dominant and composed. He looked technically brilliant picking off his opponent and landing shots at will. He rarely missed a shot that he threw. He just looked several classes above Netty who did well to last as long as he did. Galahad is quick, flashy, and reminiscent of former top-level British fighter Naseem Hamed. To be compared to the great Nassem Hamed is a true compliment showing just how great a prospect Galahad is. Naseem was a classy, show-boaty type character who provided great entertainment as Galahad does.
Galahad did all his work behind the jab working his way in and landing lightning-quick blows to Netty. It was a technically brilliant performance and one that bodes well for the future.
I am predicting big things for this young man aged 23 and expect to see him progress through the division very quickly. Despite this Galahad needs to remain grounded and make sure that complacency doesn’t set in.
I am very excited about this young boxer and is one of my tips to be a future world champion.
