Galal Yafai v Tommy Frank: Fight date, ring walk time, undercard & betting odds

Galal Yafai has made a promising start to his professional career and is next in action when he defends his WBC international flyweight title against Tommy Frank at Birmingham’s Utilita Arena.

The 2020 Olympic gold medalist is one of the brightest stars in British boxing and the 30-year-old headlines Matchroom Boxing's latest NXTGEN card on 19th August.

Birmingham-born Yafai has contested only four fights in his short professional career but the Beast was a seriously impressive amateur fighter, and a late move to the paid ranks means that Yafai can’t afford to hang around. 

Frank put up a good show in a ding-dong British title clash with Jay Harris last time out, and the Sheffield man will be sure to bring maximum effort to Birmingham. 

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of what should be a compelling night of boxing.
