Kid Hersh Talks Khalid Yafai – England has added another world champion to their list as the WBA world title at 115 pounds is going home with Khalid Yafai after the 27 year old won a wide unanimous decision over former champion Luis Concepcion on Saturday night at the Manchester Arena.
Concepcion went to England as the WBA’s beltholder but he did not make the weight and lost the belt on the scales Friday evening at the weigh-ins.
Many questioned Yafai’s level of competition prior to this fight but Yafai came through with a strong all-around performance that even saw him drop the experienced champion late in the fight. The highly touted Yafai comes with a strong amateur background and he has now improved to a perfect 21-0 as a professional.
