Kal Yafai extended his super-flyweight world title reign with a hard-fought decision win over Israel Gonzalez in Monaco.

The WBA world champion, who impressively stopped David Carmona in California last time out, was given a much tougher test by Mexico’s Gonzalez at the Casino de Monte-Carlo, rallying to take a 117-111 and 116-112 twice unanimous decision.

In the aftermath, the unbeaten Birmingham star, who improves his record to 25-0, voiced his disappointment at the performance as promoter Eddie Hearn reiterated a desire to now unify world titles.
