Video Highlights – Kal Yafai Vs Roman Gonzalez WBA super Flyweight Title Fight
Roman (Chocolatito) Gonzalez confirmed his championship capabilities with a ninth round knockout victory over Kal Yafai to win the WBA super Flyweight title on Saturday night on Mikey Garcia vs Jessie Vargas Undercard at the Ford Centre.
2½ years from his brutal Knockout loss in the hands of Sor Rungvisai, Chocolatito blasted Yafai with a right hand that sent the champion to the canvas and left him barely unable to beat the referees count in the ninth round of their scheduled 12 round fight.
The second half of the fight was largely one sided as Yafai was so fatigued and was barely able to hold on with Gonzalez unslaught continuously coming after sensing a knockout around the champ Yafai.

Gonzalez gradually broke down Yafai that at the eight round Yafai was wobbled by every shot and was even sent to the canvas before the end of the round.
Both fighters got involved in an accidental head clash that left a cut on Gonzalez’s head but that didn’t deter him from drilling Yafai with some serious body shots that forced the champ into using some clinching tactics.
