WBO #7 minimumweight Ali Raymi (21-0, 21 KOs) scored yet another one for the history books on Thursday night at the National Arena in Sanaa, Yemen. Raymi extended his own world record for consecutive first round kayos at the beginning of a career by recording a first round stoppage of previously unbeaten Prince Maz, who stepped in with a 8-0, 6 KO record. It was Raymi’s first fight of year. The talkative and colorful Ali later repeated his wish to move up five weight classes to take on super bantamweight Guillermo Rigondeaux.
