It’s a fantastic day for boxing fans. Later tonight we get the fight of the year, Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia. If you want to make it a full day of boxing, you’re in the luck — especially if you’re in the U.S. That’s because Joe Cordina and Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov will be fighting for the IBF Super Featherweight World Title in the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, Wales. Fights in the U.K. mean lunchtime fights in the U.S., so you can use this fight as an appetizer for Davis vs Garcia.
Joe Cordina (15-0, 19 KOs) and Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov (17-0-1, 14 KOs) were supposed to fight in November. Cordina had the belt and was set to defend it, but a hand injury forced the fight to be cancelled and Cordina was stripped of his belt entirely. Rakhimov then won the vacant belt by beating Zelfa Barrett, who stepped in to replace Cordina. The tables have now flipped, with Rakhimov defending the belt and Cordina hoping to win it back. Boxing drama at its finest.
Rakhimov vs Cordina starts today, Saturday April 22, at 2 p.m. ET. The main fight will likely start around 5:30. Here’s how to watch it on DAZN from anywhere in the world.
