Sheffield super-bantamweight star Kid Galahad continued on his comeback last night at London’s O2 Arena with a blistering performance to halt Italian Emiliano Salvini in four rounds.

The former undefeated British, Commonwealth, European, WBC International and IBF Youth Champion, had his second outing this year and dismantled Salvini, a former Italian Champion, with another clinical and brutal display.

In April he dispatched of Simas Volosinas, also in four rounds, after being out of the ring for 19 months to set himself on the road back and was due to feature on the original Tyson Fury v Wladimir Klitschko date on July 9 that was subsequently postponed.

Galahad, 26, was featuring on the undercard of his stablemate and close friend Kell Brook’s challenge against World Middleweight Champion Gennady Golovkin.

With his victory over Salvini, Galahad took his record to a perfect 20-0 with 11 stoppages and is now hungry to move on towards a world title shot.

Galahad said to Sky Sports after his win, “I was happy with the performance and went in there and did what I had to do.  The kid wasn’t the best opponent but I went in there and took him apart.  I just need to keep on moving, keep on getting these bouts under me and move forward to a world title. Hopefully if they offer me a world title in my next fight I’d take it with both hands, I basically believe I’m the best 122 pound fighter in the world and I’d fight any 122 pounder and stand them on their head.”
