Kid Galahad has had his next opponent confirmed.
The Sheffield featherweight is the mandatory challenger to Josh Warrington’s IBF world title.
Warrington takes on former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton on December 22 at Manchester Arena, exclusively live on BT Sport Box Office. And while Galahad waits on the result of that fight, he will be in action on December 8.
The man who beat Toka Khan-Clary in a final eliminator at the TD Garden Arena in Boston back in October will box at the FlyDSA Arena in Sheffield, exclusively live on Sky Sports, as part of the supporting cast of Kell Brook’s official WBA super-welterweight title eliminator against Michael Zerafa.
Galahad will take on Nicaragua’s Brayan Mairena in a six- or eight-round contest on a card that features Liverpool’s Anthony Fowler in title action.
Jono Carroll will take on Guillaume Frenois in an official final eliminator for Tevin Farmer’s IBF super-featherweight world title and there is action for Stefy Bull-managed duo Terri Harper and Anthony Tomlinson.
WBA International and Commonwealth welterweight titlist Josh Kelly is in against former WBA ‘regular’ world champion David Avanesyan and the card is also set to showcase Callum Hancock, Qais Ashfaq and Shakiel Thompson.
