Kid Galahad says he is unlikely to face the winner of Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg, who could finally settle their domestic rivalry this year.

Along with Frampton and Quigg, Galahad is part of a thriving super-bantamweight division in the country.

Frampton and Quigg both hold versions of the world title and talks have already begun regarding a unification clash between the duo.

Galahad, 25, says it makes more financial sense if they fight each other and he does not expect to face the winner.

“To fight someone like me is very hard, because I’m not there to get hit and I can make a very good fighter look ordinary,” he told Sky Sports.

“Financially they are best off fighting each other and either they win or they lose, but they need to fight each other and make sure they get a good pay day.

“It will raise up our profile to the British public, make the super-bantamweight division even bigger than it actually is. It’s good if they box each other.”

If the pair do fight, Galahad is backing Frampton to come out on top.

“I reckon Scott Quigg will get stopped inside six,” said Galahad. “Frampton will be too strong for him – he’s a better all-round fighter than Quigg is.

“I personally believe the winner won’t fight me. I’ve got more chance of fighting the loser, but if I want to fight the winner then I’ll have to do an either better job on the loser.”
