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.

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…
