Kid Galahad will look to take the next step against Fred Mundraby in a Commonwealth title fight on May 10 in Sheffield.

Kid Galahad will face Fred Mundraby on May 10 at Sheffield's Ponds Forge Arena, with the vacant Commonwealth super bantamweight title on the line. Channel 5 will televise in the United Kingdom.

Galahad (16-0, 8 KO) has become the last of Mick Hennessy's cards to play on the network, as Tyson Fury and Chris Eubank Jr have gone to BoxNation, and James DeGale has decided to leave Hennessy Sports. Galahad, 24, has become one of the young players in the super bantamweight division, and the Commonwealth belt is a good next step.

Mundraby (15-1-1, 7 KO) is an Australian fighter, 26 years old, whose loss came in a shot at the OPBF super flyweight title in 2011, when he retired after five rounds against Ryo Akaho.

Galahad says he's looking to show why -- as he says -- Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg won't fight him:

"I'm going to show exactly why Carl Frampton vacated his European title rather than fight me and why Quigg and his promoter daren't even mention me in the same sentence," he said. "I know they want no part of me."

How soon will Galahad really be on the level of the world title contenders?
