I'm sure by now you are all familiar with my affection for the Super-flyweight division. For me, it is simply the best division in the sport of boxing right now, and it really is the gift that keeps on giving. 

WBA Super-flyweight champion Khalid 'Kal' Yafai is will make his American debut in his next fight. Top Rank vice president Carl Moretti has stated today that Yafai will defend his title for the third time against David Carmona on May 26th. Although the venue has yet to be determined.

Now, before we get too carried away, this fight is not yet a done deal. It is however far from speculation. Moretti has said that a deal has been made with the champion's promoter, Matchroom's Eddie Hearn and that paperwork is the only formality that lies in the way of the fight being signed. 

The fight will serve as a co-feature to IBF titlist, Jerwin Ancajas. Ancahas will take on his mandatory, Jonas Sultan and the fight will stream live on the new ESPN+ service that launched last week. Should both Yafai and Ancajas make it through their next tests it is expected that they will be matched together later this year. 

"I have made a deal with Eddie for the fight and it gives us a nice doubleheader," Moretti told ESPN. "They are both good fights, and if (Ancajas and Yafai) are successful, we'll look to match them later this year."

Yafai's last two opponents are not household names, and whilst Carmona will not be a name familiar to fans from Yafai's native England. Carmona (21-5-5, 9 KOs), 26, of Mexico, is certainly no stranger to world-class and elite competition. The challenger having been beaten by Carlos Cuadras and Naoya Inoue. So this really will be a yard-stick to just how far Yafai's talents can go should he be victorious. 

Ancajas is a hard-hitting southpaw who will make his second appearance in the states. It is to him that many in his native Philippines are looking to fill the void of their hero, Manny Pacquaio when the eight-weight world champion does retire. 

Yafai/Ancajas? A Rungvisai/Estrada rematch? I'll say it again ladies and gentleman. The Super-flyweight division really is the gift that keeps on giving.
