WBA super-flyweight champion Kal Yafai wants to be the best fighter on the planet. To do that he’d have to beat Roman Gonzalez, the WBC titlist in the division and the Boxing News pound-for-pound ruler.

“That’s a big one,” Kal said. “You’ve got fighters jumping up weights to try and get a fight with him.

“I’ve got a great team behind me, Eddie [Hearn] and Matchroom. Big time boxing’s over here. I’m sure in the next year to 18 months that’s a fight that can happen over here, a big unification fight.”
