Galal Yafai scores dominant win as he powers into Olympics last 16

British star put on a real show as he hit his way past Koryan Soghomonyan in Tokyo.

Galal Yafai put on a ruthless display to power into the last 16 at the Tokyo Olympics.

Yafai was up against Armenia's Koryan Soghomonyan in the flyweight bout on Monday, and he was credited with three knockdowns, the last of which forced a stoppage.

The fight was quick to get going, with Soghomonyan receiving a standing eight count midway through the first round.

He responded well, though, and bounced back immediately to land a right hand on Yafai. However, the Brit was always able to stay a step ahead and swept the round.

The second frame followed the same template as the first, with Soghomonyan trying to hit his way back into the match. Yafai would again proved too good for him, and he landed another standing eight count to seriously apply the pressure.

From that point on, the writing appeared to be firmly on the wall. Yafail had a commanding lead on the scorecards, but he continued to press.

A brutal combination in the third round of a straight left body shot followed by a blow to the head produced another eight count, with the stoppage immediately following.

It was certainly a statement performance from the 28-year-old southpaw, and he will face Zambia's Patrick Chinyemba in the last 16.
