Kid Galahad v Jazza Dickens IBF Featherweight Title Fight Boxing Tips & Predictions

Kid Galahad and Jazza Dickens will share the ring for the second time – but this time it means more as the vacant IBF featherweight title is on the line.

Galahad claimed victory in their first fight back in 2013 when he stopped Dickens in the 10th round in Rotherham to win the vacant British super-bantamweight belt.

Since that victory, Galahad has won 12 of his last 13 fights – his only defeat was a split decision loss against Josh Warrington.

Dickens, who has three defeats in his career, has lost two since that loss to Galahad, but he has won his last eight fights – including a points win over Leigh Wood who became WBA (Regular) featherweight champion last weekend.

The winner of this fight will be looking to agree to a fight with Wood for two belts – whether that happens is yet to be decided but it would be a British blockbuster.

To only have one blemish on his record puts Galahad as the clear favourite, plus he has the mental edge that he has already defeated Dickens before.

I honestly think this will be a war. I wouldn’t be surprised if this went the distance, but I think we will see a late knockout. I am backing Galahad to be crowned world champion with a stoppage in the 11th round.

Dickens will do himself justice. I just think he will run out of steam. When he does that, Galahad will take over and end the contest.

Kid Galahad v Jazza Dickens IBF Featherweight Title Fight Boxing Tips & Predictions: Fighter’s Predictions

Kid Galahad: “Whatever happened in the past has happened. Me and Jazza will start where we left off. The first fight was unbelievable, and the second one will be even better. I know Jazza personally, he lives the life like me. I just believe I’m better in every department. It’s not personal, but we’ll both go in there to try and take each other’s head off.”

Jazza Dickens: “It’s been eight years since the first fight. I always knew it would come again, and I’ve been waiting for it a long time. I’ve had losses along the way, and I’ve had to build myself back up. There is nothing harder than having to do that, but I’ve worked hard to be here and I’m happy to have this opportunity. I need to thank MTK Global, Tony Bellew, DAZN, and Matchroom. Boxing is a conveyor belt, and it’s a blessing. I will take this chance with both hands and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
