Yafai faces Molina for IBF Inter-Continental title at the SSE Arena, Wembley

Kal Yafai (11-0, 8 KOs) will face Herald Molina (17-8-3, 7 KOs) for the vacant IBF Inter-Continental Super Flyweight title at the SSE Arena, Wembley on Saturday September 20, live on Sky Sports.
 
Yafai landed the Commonwealth title in style in Leeds in May, blasting away Yaqub Kareem inside three rounds, and the unbeaten Birmingham talent says he’ll take the first steps on the road to World title glory on the undercard of George Groves’ European Super Middleweight and WBC World title final eliminator clash with Christopher Rebrasse.

“I want to win a World title at Super Flyweight and I don’t think that I am far away from achieving that,” said Yafai. “I came back from a long time out and won the Commonwealth title and I felt great and showed the injury has not affected my power. So if I can pick up another title and get some more rounds, I’ll be in a great position to step up to World level sooner rather than later.”
 
Yafai is joined on the undercard by five of his Matchroom Boxing stablemates in Olympic gold medal star Luke Campbell MBE who faces Krzysztof Szot, former British Light Welterweight champion Darren Hamilton, unbeaten duo Martin J. Ward and Ricky Boylan and Kal’s younger brother Gamal.
 
Yafai’s clash with Molina is part of ‘Return of the Saint’ at the SSE Arena Wembley live on Sky Sports. Tickets are available via axs.com or by calling 08448 24 48 24.
