    Good point tbf. There has to be some incentive for Hearn to bid big on this as most of the money will be going to Josh. Can't see it though, as has been mentioned MR could end up doing Josh and Frank a massive favour, with the free publicity etc
    Who most had, 'not been able to beat'

    Perhaps you didn't see Selby spar him.

    Warrington had been boxing 7 years longer and it was Galahad's 3rd and 4th fight.

    "Destroyed?"
    Warrington remembers differently:






    One recipient of the resulting Warrington whirlwind was former British, Commonwealth and European super-bantamweight champion Kid Galahad (currently serving a suspension after failing a drugs test). Warrington edged defensive wizard Galahad twice thanks to his father’s cool corner-work.

    “I remember it well,” he said. “We were only amateurs like, but I boxed him at his home show and bloody hell, I remember going back to the corner after the first round and saying to my Dad: “I can’t hit him!” He was awkward.”

    Fully agree, same as people wanting Manny Pacquio to win after all his antics, can’t understand it myself

    You might not see it, but Galahad does:


    "As for when, the sooner the better. I have faith in Eddie Hearn and Matchroom delivering that, so I'll leave that to them.

    "I'd fight him in his own back garden. By the end of the contest, I'll have converted some of them Leeds fans into fans of Kid Galahad."

    Well that's BS pal, the second bout was either 15/0 or 15/1. I can't remember exactly but defo one of those scores
    That in anybody's book is destroying him.
    And I've been through where they both were in there am careers with you before, so stop trying to make out there was some massive gulf in experience.
    They were both considered novice when they met. Stop trying to confuse posters.
    The bout you referenced was their 1st bout against each other and it is correct kid bamboozled Josh in the 1st rd, however Josh soon worked him out and went on to a close win. The 2nd bout was how I mentioned above. Quite easy for Josh. Josh did start boxing years before that is correct but he didn't have many bouts and by the time he met kid in the 1srmt bout, Josh hadn't fought for over 2yr.

    BS? I've quoted Josh Warrington!!
    He started boxing 7 years before Galahad and it was Galahad's 3rd and 4th fight.
    The result is as relevant as this fight:

    You havnt quoted Josh at all, you've quoted someone who has allegedly spoken to Josh.
    Josh has explained to me personally how the 2 bouts went and he's not the type to make up tall storys. So either the quotes you posted are wrong or what Josh told me is wrong.
    Thing is bent nose you are being very selective in the information you post, I understand your backing your man but Josh has beat kid twice. You keep bringing up that josh started boxing 7 years before, tjat is correct but by the time they met the ring experience wasnt that diffetrnt. They were both considrrrd novice by the ABA
    Fact is that it was quite a while ago and it may or may not have a bearing on what will go on when they meet again.

    Just listened to Warrington on 5live boxing saying he's very disappointed that he's got to fight Galahad and thinks the fight will be in Leeds in late May or June.
    Is he unaware that the IBF have ordered that the fight must be before 4 May?
    The purse bid was high for non-PPV. I'm still dubious that this will happen. Convenient injury, perhaps?

    How would a convenient injury benefit Josh?

    I listened to it too. He was uncertain about the date because he said with the purse bid having been pushed back it may impact on the date of the fight. No idea if that's the case though, this was just what Josh had said to Mike Costello.

    He'd be deadly with knock out power
