Decision between Yafai and Ruiz

Diego Alberto Ruiz def. Gamal Yafai by unanimous decision (98-89, 97-90, 97-91)


Yafai vs. Ruiz

Yafai hits the deck as Ruiz connects with a fine left hook. Again the Brummie beats the clock, he’s just a standing target for the last 90 seconds or so when Ruiz picks him up again.

I’m stunned that Yafai makes the last bell but he does! By my count he won two rounds out of 10, what do the judges think?


Yafai vs. Ruiz

More courage from Yafai in what is now clearly and literally a losing battle. Heeding his corner’s advice, he starts to move his head and Ruiz struggles to land a meaningful punch for the first time in the fight.

In the tenth…


Yafai vs. Ruiz

Yafai has been second best the whole time but he’s not half trying as we enter the final two rounds, going hard in the body but being clocked with the right hand on the bell.

Yafai’s corner is furious with him and threatens to throw in the towel if he doesn’t start moving his head.


Yafai vs. Ruiz

After a few rounds of hope for Yafai, Ruiz has regained control of the fight. He tracks his opponent in a calculated manner, just waits for Yafai to attack, and then just takes them down.

Yafai looks all the more tired now.

It starts in round eight…



Yafai vs Ruiz

Yafai hit the canvas twice in the first three rounds of this 10-round contest.

The lettering already appears on the wall for the man from Birmingham.


This is a super bantamweight fight. Diego Ruiz is looking to win his first fifth fight after suffering two defeats last year.
