GB flyweight Galal Yafai was dominant in his first bout at the Expo Arena in Ekaterinberg, Russia.

He set about Alex Winwood as if the Australian had done something to offend him. He opened the first round slamming a hard southpaw left over and went straight after Winwood as he unleashed combinations of punches. Winwood had to retreat on to the backfoot as Yafai harried him.The Australian managed to uncork a right hook to the body but he was under pressure. A straight one-two slammed Winwood’s head back. He tried to fight back in the second round but Galal soon resumed control. He fought with tremendous energy, a right hook setting up his cross. That solid left knocked Winwood back.
