Kal Yafai will continue his education in the pro ranks against Mexican Gonzalo Garcia in Wolverhampton on Saturday night.

The Birmingham bantamweight made huge strides on turning professional last year, racking up six wins with five coming inside the distance.

Promoter Eddie Hearn has high hopes for the former Team GB youngster and will be looking to move him into title contention later this year.

But for now the 23-year-old will keep busy in a scheduled eight-rounder at the Civic Hall against Garcia, whose ledger reads 8-6 with two drawn.

Having lost his last three fights he is not expected to trouble Yafai, although he has only been stopped once.

The fight will take place between the semi-finals and the final of Prizefighter - Welterweights III, live on Sky Sports 1HD.
