Default Kid Galahad is a pretty talented guy

Had a chance to catch his past couple of fights. Still young, but the talent is there. Does a good job of fighting in the pocket without getting hit much. He doesn't seem to have to run around to avoid shots or whatever. He can stand there with his opponent, get off, and not get hit. Was impressed with how he closed the show today.

Default Re: Kid Galahad is a pretty talented guy

He looks quite talented but he has close to zero power, which will hinder his prospects. But he is still young and that may come as he gains experience and grows in natural strength.

Right now he isn't ready for the top domestic fighters at 122 or 126 but with a few more fights against decent journeymen like Ancliff he should be ready.

Hurting an opponent isn't only about brute strength. Galahad has the other intangibles that will allow him to hurt guys such as good punch placement and the ability to hit an opponent with punches he doesn't see coming. He was def. hurting his opponent this evening.

He's not a feather fisted guy like Malignaggi as an example.
