Josh Warrington will step inside the ring after a long hiatus of almost 16 months to take on Mauricio Lara in a 12-rounder featherweight clash. Warrington has beaten enormous noteworthy opponents and maintained his undefeated streak. However, his arch-nemesis Kid Galahad feels he hasn’t fought any notable opponents yet.

Talking to Gareth Davies, Galahad shed some light on ‘The Leeds Warrior’s career and his only watch-worthy fight.

He first asked Davies to name a few exciting fights of Warrington‘s career. In response, Davies mentioned the Lee Selby fight. But the 30-year-old rubbed off his claims, saying it was an abruptly boring fight.

Galahad then added, “The only exciting fight he’s had in his whole career was against a washed-up (Carl) Frampton was being battened. Like Frampton actually said in the interview, he fell out of love for boxing and all he did was beat a guy who didn’t actually be in the ring and that’s the truth in it.”

Warrington fought Frampton back in 2018. He bagged a hard-fought unanimous decision victory in that fight and defended his IBF featherweight title. However, this fight didn’t impress Galahad much as he felt Frampton was ‘washed-up’ and didn’t present his best self. This helped Warrington claim an easy win and signify his spot.

Ever since his own loss to ‘The Leeds Warrior’, Galahad has asked for a rematch, but has failed to secure one until now.

Will Josh Warrington ever fight Kid Galahad?

Warrington, 30, is the number 1 ranked featherweight at present. He fought Galahad in 2019 and secured a split decision win. ‘The Leeds Warrior’ will look to add another win to his resume tonight, as he has his eyes on bigger fights in the future.

The Leeds native wants a shot at resilient champions of his division rather than lower-ranked contenders. He’s keen on tracing a path to the unified featherweight belt.

Considering the same, a fight with Galahad might not be on the cards immediately. However, if the latter makes his way to the top by bagging constant wins, he might earn his shot at redemption.

It will be interesting to see how things play out for Warrington tonight.

What do you make of Galahad’s comments?
