Kid Galahad is eyeing a fight with the winner of the possible Carl Frampton versus Scott Quigg battle when he returns from suspension.
The outspoken former former British, Commonwealth and European title holder is currently serving out a suspension for failing a drugs test, despite protesting his innocence.
The undefeated super bantamweight is due to return to action in September 2016 and wants a Frampton or Quigg clash.
The confident Ingle Gym graduate doesn’t think IBF world champ Frampton or Quigg would fancy the clash – and states he would have to secure mandatory status to get the fight.
In truth, by the time he returns, the winner of a fight that looks increasingly likely to take place early next year will be targeting unification and the biggest names in the division, but that hasn’t stopped Galahad setting high targets.
“Realistically, I don’t think fights with Carl Frampton or Scott Quigg were ever on the table before,” Galahad told World Boxing News.
“I sparred Quigg when I was 18 and he was on the way up, but he was – and still is, very one dimensional. I don’t think either one of them have ever been prepared to fight me. It will be interesting to see how far they have progressed by the time I step back into the ring and if they do fight I’d want to be facing the winner.”
“Whoever wins will be at the top of the division when I return then I would certainly want to fight them. I would have to put myself in position as a mandatory though as I don’t think they would ever fight me voluntarily,” he added.
