Briton Kal Yafai hopes to put on an eye-catching display defending his WBA super-flyweight title against Norbelto Jimenez on Saturday.
The Birmingham fighter is yet to taste defeat in 25 fights and his next test is against Dominican Republic’s Norbelto Jimenez in Providence, Rhode Island, when he appears on the undercard of the WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade’s fight against Maciej Sulecki.

Yafai is keen to impress in order to raise his profile and remains ambitious about his future. “My eyes are solely on Norbelto Jimenez and I need to do a good job on him, but then I need a massive fight,” he said. “I haven’t had that big name yet, but that will come.
“I was going to fight at the end of April but I had a hand injury, so I’ve had to wait a little bit longer.” Yafai edged out Mexican Israel Gonzalez in Monte Carlo on points in November and hopes to line up future unification bouts with WBC champion Juan Estrada, IBF title holder Jerwin Ancajas or WBO champion Kazuto Ioka.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
