WILLIE Casey called for big fights after his first round knock out victory in Belfast last Saturday night and it seems ‘Big Bang’ might just get his chance to explode back onto the big time.
The charismatic Limerick puncher could bully the ‘Kid’, Kid Galahad that is, after promoter Mick Hennessy revealed a fight between the duo is in the offing.
The Southill southpaw did hint at a return to title action in Dublin in April last Saturday night, but the former European Champion and Prizefighter winner could be tempted by the opportunity to defeat the rising star of the ‘New Generation’ live on Channel 5.
Hennessy claims the fight is in the pipeline and he is eager to make in Sheffield for April or May.
“There is a lot of interest in that fight and we are looking at April-May time to get that on in Sheffield. It is in the pipeline. It is just a case of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. That would be another stiff test for Kid and it would be another step up in his development. Willie is a good quality operator. He has won the prizefighter title, been a European champion and lost just one fight so he has got good pedigree.” Galahad’s promoter revealed.
