BIOGRAPHY

The younger brother of fellow boxers Khalid and Gamal, Galal Yafai qualified for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games thanks to a semi-final victory at the 2016 European Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament.

Competing at light flyweight, Yafai won his first-round match but lost out in the last 16 to Joahnys Argilagos of Cuba.

But he was to underline his status as one of the world’s most emerging talents in 2017, helping the British Lionhearts to the World Boxing Series semi-finals with a plethora of bout victories.

Yafai would box his way to Commonwealth Games gold in 2018, defeating Amit Panghal in the final on Australia's Gold Coast.
