Joe Cordina will be looking to win his first world title in front of his passionate Welsh fanbase.
Welshman Joe Cordina will be looking to fulfill his world title dreams when he takes on IBF featherweight champion Kenichi Ogawa in the Welsh capital on Saturday night.
After missing all of 2020 with a serious hand injury, Cordina came out of 2021 with three wins, including a first-round knockout win over Joshua Hernandez at last year’s Matchroom Fight Camp.
However, while Cordina impressed last year, Ogawa will be a huge step up in the competition. The Japanese fighter has just one loss on his professional record and is now targeting unification bouts after winning the IBF 130-pound title last November.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Ogawa vs. Cordina.
