Yafai, Ogogo, Cheeseman Win On Joshua-Breazeale Card


By Elliot Foster

Kal Yafai warmed up for a potential world title shot in spectacular style.

The Birmingham super-flyweight, who is the WBA Inter-Continental champion, scored a one-round stoppage at London’s O2 Arena.

Yafai moved to 19-0 (13 KOs) after getting rid of limited Hungarian Jozsef Ajtai, as part of the undercard to Anthony Joshua’s first IBF world heavyweight title defence against undefeated American Dominic Breazeale.

Having had an outing on the Sky Sports Box Office-televised card, the 27-year-old looks set to return in a big fight in Birmingham in October, dispatched of his vastly overmatched opponent with relative ease following two knockdowns within the opening three minutes.

Ajtai, 20 and now 15-4 (10 KOs), has also been in with British flyweight champion Andrew Selby when he was ended in two and most recently went the distance with double Olympic champion Zou Shiming a fortnight ago.

Earlier in the card, Anthony Ogogo continued his comeback from injury with another victory.

The 2012 Olympic bronze medal winner, who returned with a stoppage win on May 28 in Glasgow, recorded a first round retirement of Frane Radnic to move to 10-0 (6 KOs).

And Ted Cheeseman started proceedings with a five-round ending of Danny Little in the super-welterweight division.

He is now 5-0 (4 KOs), while Little –– in defeat –– slipped to 4-18-2.
