Panel: How should Terri Harper and Kid Galahad rebuild from here?
We ask a panel of experts what Terri Harper and Kid Galahad should do next
Terri should probably have a warm up fight. The fight she had at the weekend was quite evenly matched and that’s hard for someone coming off two hand surgeries and a year out of the ring. She could possibly look at moving up a division. Kid Galahad could also go up in weight and have a fight for confidence.

A tough comeback but that’s the test a great champion passes. Galahad was in with a real puncher in Kiko Martínez but I was surprised at how hittable he was. Maybe he looked past him. Terri had been inactive due to injury but her opponent boxed well. Terri has achieved so much at a young age, she will come again.
Galahad should take the immediate rematch, at 31 he has no time to waste. For Harper it’s different. The last two years have been a huge rollercoaster for her. She’s proven herself to be a very good fighter already and she’s still only 25, there should be a lot more to come so there’s no need to rush.
I think both should go for rematches. Galahad looked class before he got hurt and will tighten up defensively for a rematch. Harper’s confidence will be hurt and she has been inactive for a while. But I expect her to want to jump back in.
