Kal Yafai & Demetrius Andrade retain titles as Joseph Parker sends message to heavyweights


Britain’s Kal Yafai retained his WBA super-flyweight world title with a unanimous decision win over Norbelto Jimenez in Rhode Island.

It was the unbeaten 30-year-old’s fifth successful defence of his crown.

After the win the Birmingham fighter called out the likes of WBC champion Juan Francisco Estrada, and Roman Gonzalez, the former four-division champion.

“Those kinds of guys, they have to be next,” Yafai said.

“I want all the big fights. All the big guys.”

Judges scored the fight at 119-107 118-108 117-109 in favour of Yafai against the Dominican Republic’s Jimenez, 28, who had been unbeaten since 2011.
