Kid Galahad wants his rematch with Josh Warrington!
Former title contender Kid Galahad (26-1, 15 KOs) returns to the ring February 8 to face Claudio Marrero (24-3, 17 KOs) in an IBF Featherweight eliminator hosted in his hometown of Sheffield, England.
A win sets up a possible rematch against IBF World Featherweight champion Josh Warrington.
Having fought and lost to Warrington by disputed split decision on June 15, 2019, the 29-year-old desperately wants a shot at revenge.
During an interview with Talksport, Galahad is still simmering over that defeat, feeling he did enough to earn the win.
“At the end of the day, as a fighter, you know when you’ve won and you’ve lost. I know 100 percent in the back of his mind he knows he lost that fight. He can say what he wants. He knows what happened that night. And he knows I beat him that night!”
However, to get the rematch he craves he must get past Marrero. The 30-year-old from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic has previously fought twice for a world title (losing to Jesus Cuellar in August 2013 and Jesus Rojas in September 2017) and would love another crack at a world belt.
It must be noted that Warrington is currently in negotiations to face WBO Featherweight champion, Shakur Stevenson. When asked about that fight he said while wanting Warrington to win, the match-up itself is a toss-up.
No matter who wins, a victory over Marrero means he gets a shot at the winner. The ultimate goal for Galahad is not just vengeance, it’s to achieve his dream of becoming a world champion.
