FEATHERWEIGHT contender Kid Galahad will now face Jose Cayetano on July 15 after original opponent Dennis Ceylan was denied permission to fight in the UK following a positive drug test for cocaine.

Galahad – a former British, Commonwealth and European super-bantamweight champion – was set to fight Ceylan for an IBF featherweight ranking.

After it emerged Ceylan had failed a drug test, his clash with Galahad was pulled and the unbeaten Sheffield fighter will now face tough Mexican Cayetano.
