Kal Yafai won the WBA super-flyweight world title all the way back in 2016. He remains Britain’s longest continuously reigning world champion but has the most important fight of his career so far coming up. He meets Roman Gonzalez on Saturday February 29 at The Ford Center at The Star, Frisco in Texas. “Chocolatito” is 32 years old but with 50 fights, and only two losses, he has long been considered one of the greats of the divisions.
How much are you looking forward to this particular fight because I guess it’s your biggest one since winning the world title in the first place?
I’m very, very excited. Since the fight got announced I’ve been buzzing really. I can’t wait.
