WBA super flyweight champion Khalid Yafai, 24-0-(15), made a successful US debut on Saturday night by scoring a seventh round retirement win over David Carmona, 21-6-5-(9), at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California.


Yafai decked Carmona in rounds one, four and five, before Cermona stayed on his stool at the end of round seven. Yafai was deducted a point in round five for hitting Cermona when he was down.


Carmona weighed in over 3lbs over the championship limit at the weigh in so had he won would not have won the title.


Speaking after the fight Yafai said: “It was a great fight for the fans at home. I’m sure they enjoyed it. What a way to start my U.S. debut. I put on a show and all that.”
