Joe Cordina will defend his IBF Super-Featherweight World Title against American rival Edward Vazquez at the famous Casino de Monte Carlo in Monte Carlo, Monaco on Saturday, November 4, live on DAZN.
Cordina (16-0, 9 KOs) is widely regarded as one of the best British fighters today, a two-time champion of the world in just 16 fights, and returns to the ring following his breathtaking victory last April over Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov
The Tony Sims-trained champion, 31, will face a tough challenge in Vazquez (15-1, 3 KOs), who gets his first-ever World Title shot thanks to a four-fight winning streak. The 27-year-old Texan’s only career loss to date was a controversial split decision defeat by Raymond Ford in May 2022.
A win for Cordina should set up a unification fight with the O’Shaquie Foster-Rocky Hernandez winner, the pair meet on Saturday, October 28 in Cancun, Mexico for the WBC world title.

South Africa’s Sive Nontshinga puts his IBF Light Flyweight championship on the line against Mexico’s Adrian Curiel (22-4-1, 3 KOs).
The ‘Special One’ (12-0, 9 KOs) makes the second defence of his IBF crown, which he won in a fight of the year contender against Hector Flores Calixto in 2022, and this bout promises to be another enthralling 12-round fight.

The 2016 Olympic Bronze medallist is undefeated as a professional (16-0, 9 KOs), and will be looking to put on another strong showcase of his incredible talents on home soil when he collides with hard-hitting Mexican, Lucero (16-1, 10 KOs).
The inspirational Ramla Ali will seek redemption as she looks to avenge her only professional loss to date in a rematch with Julissa Guzman for the IBF Inter-Continental Super-Bantamweight Championship.
Mexican Guzman (13-2-2, 7 KOs) sensationally stopped Ali (8-1-0, 2 KOs) in round eight when they met in New Orleans back in June.
A win over rival Guzman will reignite Ali’s dream of becoming a future World Champion.
