Joe Cordina says he will stop at nothing in pursuit of his dream of being world champion ahead of his June 4 encounter with IBF super-featherweight king Kenichi Ogawa.
Welshman Cordina (14-0, 8 KOs) will have home advantage against Ogawa, with the pair pencilled in to meet at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena live on DAZN.
Ogawa won his IBF strap with a unanimous decision verdict over Azinga Fuzile back in November, while Cordina was last seen comfortably outpointing Miko Khatchatryan in December.
“I’ve dedicated my entire life to boxing and to putting myself in this position,” said Cordina. “Now it all comes down to this opportunity, my world title shot.
“It’s a lifelong dream of mine to become a world champion and a stepping stone to securing my family’s future and making all of the times missed with them worth it.
“I’ll be taking this opportunity with both hands; I’m prepared to do whatever it takes to win and be crowned the new IBF world super-featherweight champion. Be ready to see the best Joe Cordina come fight night as I put my name at the top of the division.”
