Khalid Yafai is a professional British boxer. To date, Yafai remains an undefeated professional boxer.
In the last battle to date (held on June 29, 2019), the opponent of Khalid Yafai was Norberto Jimenez. Yafai won by unanimous decision (UD).
The British boxer in December 2019 was supposed to combine the belts with WBC champion Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada but then refused the fight. Yafai was expected to share the ring with a mandatory challenger in the person of Andrew Moloney, but Hearn agreed on the fight with the legendary Roman Gonzalez.
The British have owned the WBA belt since December 2016. Despite the bright speeches, Khalida is not considered one of the leaders of the second flyweight because of the lack of fights with other tops.
Yafai is a boxer with a good amateur base who can work from a distance. Khalid quickly enters the fight, bringing down power strikes from the first round. The Briton has small problems with endurance, which do not manifest themselves so clearly around the champion segments. The champion has a good hit on the right and knocked out 15 opponents.
Roman Gonzalez is a professional Nicaraguan boxer. In the last battle to date (held on December 23, 2019), the opponent of Roman Gonzalez was Diomel Diocos. Gonzalez won the fight by TKO.
Gonzalez has already entered his name in the history of boxing, having conquered four weight categories. At the end of 2015, the Nicaraguan led the pound-for-pound rating, which became real nonsense (previously, small-scale fighters were not even in the top three of this rating due to unpopularity).
However, like any great boxer, Roman began to decline in physical condition. In March 2017, Gonzalez met Thai Rungvisai and was knocked down, but then leveled the match. However, the judges were not convinced, and they delivered a verdict in favor of Wisaksil Wangek, depriving the Nicaraguan world champion’s belt and the “zero” in the track record.
The revenge with Rungvisay ended for Gonzalez more deplorably – a brutal knockout defeat in the fourth round. Absolutely all experts put an end to Roman’s career. Nicaraguan disappeared from sight for a year, and then returned to the ring. Now the ex-champion in four scales is on a series of two early consecutive victories over Moises Fuentes and Diomel Diocos.
Gonzalez’s professional record: 50 fights, 48 wins, 2 losses.
Kal Yafai vs Roman Gonzalez Prediction
Bookmakers immediately reacted to the official announcement of the match and put up the first odds. Suddenly, a boxer from Nicaragua opened a favorite. Roman Gonzalez is 32 years old, has been boxing in the professional ring since 2005 and is an ex-world champion in four weight categories. Gonzalez is one of Nicaragua’s most legendary representatives in boxing history.
Khalid Yafai is a 30-year-old British boxer, reigning WBA world champion in the second flyweight title. The upcoming fight will be the sixth title defense for Yafai. In the professional ring, Khalid has been boxing since 2012 and has no defeats.
If the Nicaraguan still has gunpowder (bookmakers believe this), then he will give boxing fans a couple of spectacular battles. The main plus of Gonzalez is a strong blow from both hands. Roman has 40 knockouts, which is a high indicator for small divisions. But the ex-champion will be inferior in size (height 160 cm with an arm span of 163 cm).
