Gamal Yafai Says There Will Only Be One Winner Saturday Night
Yafai is looking to put on a memorable performance this weekend
Gamal Yafai says it’s time to show his class and take Bobby Jenkinson’s Commonwealth Super-Bantamweight title on Saturday night at the Genting Arena in Birmingham, live on Sky Sports.
Yafai’s first title shot comes just shy of two years in the paid ranks, and the hard-hitting Birmingham talent has had to be patient for his first crack.
Jenkinson landed the Commonwealth belt in London in September, stopping Lewis Pettitt in the 11th round of their clash at Wembley Arena, but Yafai believes he’ll have too much in his locker for the Lincoln man to retain the title. Yafai said:
“This is a massive fight for me. I think I can win and I think I am better than him but it will be a tough night. I have trained hard for it and I am expecting a difficult fight and that is what I will probably get, but I have a big belief that there is only going to be one winner.”
“I am not the type to go on about how good I am because I haven’t shown how good I am but the bookies don’t normally lie and I am a big, big favourite in the fight. But you can’t go off that in boxing and I am not bothered about that.”
