23 year old Abdul Awad, better known as Kid Galahad, is the latest off the steel city production line. The rising prospect hailing from the Ingles Stable in Sheffield has eighteen wins no losses and looks to be improving all the time.
Like many Ingle fighters he possesses elements of the unorthodox elusive qualities that were first championed by Herol ‘bomber’ Graham allowing him to find punches from different angles whilst avoiding any unnecessary punishment. His punching power looks very big for a super bantam weight and he looks to pack a punch reminiscent to that of Prince Naseem Hamed. Although his punch resistance hasn’t truly been tested yet it is only a matter of time before Kid Galahad is mixing it with fighters in the higher echelons of the division. He adds to the mix of unbeaten rising British super-bantamweights in Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg although both those two are further along in their development.
He looks to have the raw ability to reach world level and in a really tough division that is be stacked with the likes of Nonito Donaire and the exceptional Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux there could some value in a bet for him to take one of the world title straps in the future if he continues to improve.
