Not sure why because I definitely think he is in the mix.
I would like to see him against Monroe perhaps that would give us a good idea.
His only real downside is power, but as Malignaggi has shown you don't necessarily need it to be a success in the modern game.
Galahad is starting to sit down on his shots a little more, especially when he switches downstairs. He's not completely featherfisted & punching power is a vastly overrated aspect of boxing imo.
He's been sparring with Burns recently which should be a good learning experience & is fighting TBA on 8th Dec, same bill as Degale. Its a shame he hasnt fought since May but will hopefully have a busy 2013.
