Behind The Camera With Kal Yafai

Ding, ding, ding, look who stopped by the Barclaycard Arena for a few shots ahead of his first world title defence which takes place right here this May! Check out all the photos and fight info here! 

Birmingham's first world boxing champion goes head-to-head with Suguru Muranaka with his prize possession on the line - his WBA World Super-Flyweight title!

We caught up with Kal on a recent promo shoot, which included a few shots canal-side of our arena. We agreed to meet the champ just outside the main entrance...only to be greeted by a swarm of fans grabbing selfies with the historic Birmingham boxer. The success doesn't seem to be phasing Kal, who looked very cool, calm and collected on his shoot.

The champ headlines a huge night of boxing here in Birmingham with a fight-card packed full of eagerly anticipated bouts, including Sam Eggington vs Ceferino Rodriguez, Frankie Gavin vs Dave Ryan and Kal's brother Gamal Yafai takes on Sean Davis!
