The pair contest the vacant British super-bantamweight title. The Hitman feels Dickens has what it takes to become the latest Scouser to take a Lonsdale belt back to Merseyside, after recent months have seen Paul and Stephen Smith add to domestic titles already held by David Price, Tony Bellew and Kevin Satchell. Hatton said: "Kid Galahad is tricky and likes to move, but so does Jazza. He's quick, strong and was a top amateur so has the boxing brain to suss out Kid's style. "I've said before that I think Jazza is a bit of dark horse at this weight and I think he can surprise a few people with a fantastic performance." Hatton's long-time nemesis and former WBC light-welterweight champion Junior Witter has trained at the famous Ingle gym for many years, and while he admitted the match-up isn't a foregone conclusion, he picked Galahad to come out on top. Hatton says: "Junior is obviously going stay loyal to his stable mate. I'm Jazza's promoter so I'm loyal to my fighter. "I don't think this fight is going to be like a lot of people are predicting. I think it's a real pick 'em fight, but I think Jazza will win a close battle." Jazza Dickens versus Kid Galahad is promoted by Hennessy Sports and will be televised live on Channel 5.
