Yafai, making his US debut, rose to 24-0 with his 15th stoppage inside the distance while Carmona fell to 21-6 with five drawn.

International Boxing Federation super flyweight champion Jerwin Ancajas beat Jonas Sultan by unanimous decision on Saturday in the first all-Filipino world title fight in 93 years.

Judges in Fresno, California, awarded the verdict to Ancajas by scores of 119-109, 119-109 and 117-111 as the southpaw improved to 30-1-1 while Sultan fell to 14-4.

Sultan, whose win streak was stopped at five, had decisioned former world champion John Riel Casimero last September for his title chance.

It was the first all-Filipino world title fight since 1925 in Manila, when Pancho Villa kept his world flyweight title with a unanimous decision over Clever Sencio, taking the last victory of his career.

I'm going to give Khalid his respects. The fact that he's not a gifted destroyer and could stay at home fighting set ups is worth noting. It says a lot when the heavyweight "champion of the world" won't cut the…
