Shakur Stevenson is targeting a unification showdown with Joe Cordina.
The Newark native is the current WBO and WBC champion at super-featherweight.
Stevenson has a record of 18-0 with nine quick finishes and is set to return to the ring on September 23 in his home city.
The fight will take place at the Prudential Center, exclusively live on ESPN, and is set to feature Keyshawn Davis on the card.
But the two-weight world champion who lost out to Robeisy Ramirez in the final of the Olympics at bantamweight in Rio six years ago wants to get the job done quickly before moving on to bigger and better things.
Robson Conceição, the Brazilian standout, is in the opposite corner.
He has lost just one of 18 fights since turning professional after clinching Olympic gold. That defeat came against Oscar Valdez, the Mexican who Stevenson beat last time out.
But the 25-year-old southpaw Stevenson, the Ring Magazine champion, wants to clean up at the weight and has stated a fight with the aforementioned Welshman Cordina is high on his wishlist.
In an interview with FightHub TV, Stevenson said:
“Joe Cordina has constantly been saying my name and hitting me up on Instagram.”
Cordina wowed the world in June as he sensationally stopped Kenichi Ogawa inside two rounds at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff to clinch the IBF title, with Stevenson taking to social media in the immediate aftermath to confirm his desire for a clash with his fellow former Olympian.
“His behaviour is motivating me to want to stay here and beat him up. If I stay at 130, I’ll stay to beat Joe Cordina up and try to stop him, but we’ll see.
“The bigger fights for me are at 130, even though nobody really knows who Joe Cordina is, but he needs to watch his mouth when he’s talking about me.”
