Gamal Yafai proved too strong for Sean Davis as the brother of headliner Kal claimed the WBC International super-bantamweight belt.

The 25-year-old dropped Davis six times before taking out his fellow undefeated rival in the seventh round.

Yafai is now 12-0, while Davis drops to 12-1.

Birmingham results

Frenchman Renald Garrido was a tough nut to crack as the entertaining ‘Lion’ gave Frankie Gavin a scare or two.

Garrido, who holds a victory over Bradley Saunders, was never unfazed by facing the former world amateur champion and went the complete eight rounds with Gavin.

Ultimately, the pair were only separated by a couple of points as the home fighter won 77-75 to take the spoils.

Josh Kelly continued his impressive start in the pro ranks with a fourth-round stoppage of Jony Vina. Kelly showed why there’s so much about his career as the 23-year-old pushed to 2-0 with promoter Eddie Hearn.

Adam Harper claimed the spoils in a battle for the Midlands super welterweight title over ten rounds in a fiercely fought battle with Ryan Kelly.

Harper earned a 97-95 decision with referee Shaun Messer to make it a perfect eight wins from eight starts.

Jordan Clayton squeezed to 6-0 with a four-round nod over Nick Golubs. The pair engaged in a war in which the 23-year-old took by the narrowest of margins, 39-38.

At middleweight, Kieron Conway shut out Jan Balog to push to 3-0, while Aaron Lovell did likewise against Liam Richards to improve his C.V to 2-0.

Charlie Williams suffered the first blemish of his seven-fight pro career. He was held to a draw against nine-loss Josh Thorne before Cori Gibbs took every round from Ahmed Ibrahim on his way to an eleventh-straight victory.
