Galahad, real name Barry Awad, won the vacant British title against Jazza Dickens last year but quickly relinquished the strap in favour international opposition.
The 23-year-old has some momentum behind him with four successive stoppage wins and has a career record of 15-0.
"The European title is just another stepping stone," he said. "It's a good title to have but it's just another step - Naseem Hamed had that same title, Carl Frampton had it, Rendall Munroe had it - all quality fighters have held that belt."
Prado holds the less-regarded EU belt but has resurrected his career after three straight losses to compile a 9-3-1 slate.
"I've seen one or two clips of Prado and he looks like a decent kid, he can come forward, he's strong, he can box and he's there to win," Galahad said.
"But, it really doesn't matter who it is - you can't take anybody lightly, you've got to train like it's your last fight and that's how champions are made."
