I think he looks like somebody who could go all the way, I would fancy him against any of the other british fighters out there at the moment.

You can only learn so much from knocking the shit out of journeymen.

The way he's going he'll probably have to fight Booth or Haskins this year. There just isn't the depth in Britain.

Who is the British Bantamweight champion?

I know this is becoming a cliche but he should get out of Britain and fight abroad, if he's a strong enough character to do that at his age.
There isn't any depth at home to move him on so try a base in the Southern US having fights in Mexico where (big presumption here) I would expect to be more quality at the level he needs. He can still pick up fights over here if he wants to hold and keep a Lonsdale strap but he'd learn alot from better matched opponents abroad. The other added benefit is would dampen the hype, although I suspect that isn't part of Eddie's plan.

Jason Booth - A great old pro who has done well in his career. I think this would be a great fight for Yafai over 8 rounds with a chance to be in there with a wiley fighter. Booth could provide a test with his skill and experience. Former world title challenger.

Josh Wale - Josh Wale has a fight come in February but he is a tough kid. Who deserves some credit but I think Yafai could use him as a stepping stone.

Craig Lyon - Another good pro who can learn Yafai alot to be honest and he will be able to gain some valuable experience while also overstepping a good fighter.
Some one who won't fold up after the first body shot. Garcia was nothing much , but he showed Yafai's limitations.
Yafai needs solid pros who will take him into deeper water , so he can hone his skills.
