Joe Cordina v Anthony Cacace: Fight date, time, undercard & how to watch

Welsh fighter Joe Cordina will make the latest defence of his IBF world super featherweight title later this year when he takes on Anthony Cacace in Saudi Arabia.

The pair were initially expected to lock horns in February on the undercard of Tyson Fury's heavyweight showdown with Oleksandr Usyk.

However, Fury's team confirmed last week the fight on Saturday 17th February would be postponed after the 35-year-old suffered a "freak" cut while sparring in the final days of his training camp.

Promoters had initially tried to salvage the card, but the decision was made to postpone the whole event until later this year, meaning both Cordina and Cacace can take a break before restarting their training camps.

Joe Cordina v Anthony Cacace odds

Cordina is the overwhelming favourite to win the fight at 1/6, while Cacace is considered to be the outsider at 4/1.

Joe Cordina v Anthony Cacace venue

Cordina and Cacace will trade leather at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The venue is usually used for football, but thanks to its retractable roof, it can host indoor events as well.

Tyson Fury's contest against Francis Ngannou was held at the Kingdom Arena in October 2023, as was Anthony Joshua's bout with Otto Wallin in December of that same year.

The venue is also set to host MMA and UFC action in 2024.

Being on the Fury v Usyk undercard, Cordina's fight with Cacace is set to be part of a historic night of boxing.

The card will be shown on the first-ever tri-broadcast PPV, with viewers able to tune in across TNT Sports PPV, DAZN PPV and Sky Sports PPV, with organisers wanting the event to be as widely available as possible.

Joe Cordina v Anthony Cacace belts

Two belts are set to be up for grabs when Cordina and Cacace meet in Saudi Arabia in May.

Cacace will put his IBO super featherweight title on the line, while Cordina's IBF world strap will also be up for grabs.

Joe Cordina record

Welshman Cordina has an incredible 17-0 record as a professional. The 32-year-old turned pro in 2018 and won his first four fights by stoppage.

He has nine stoppage wins to his name since turning pro, while he was also a decorated amateur, representing Great Britain at the European Amateur Championships, Commonwealth Games and World Combat Games.

Cordina won his first world title in June 2022, when he stopped Kenichi Ogawa with a stunning right hand in the second round. He was stripped of the belt later that year after suffering a hand injury, but he won it back in April 2023 after a split-decision win over Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov.

He defended his belt in Monaco in November, winning a majority decision over Edward Vazquez, and he hopes to improve his record against Cacace in May.

Anthony Cacace record

Irish fighter Cacace has a record of 21-1 since turning professional in February 2012.

He won the first 15 fights of his career before losing to Martin J Ward as he challenged for the British and Commonwealth super featherweight titles.

Cacace has since responded in style and won six fights on the spin, claiming the British super featherweight and IBO titles along the way.

His clash with Cordina will be his first for a recognised world title.

Joe Cordina v Anthony Cacace undercard

With the original card being postponed, there are no guarantees that all the fights will be moved to the new date in May, but Cordina and Cacace are still expected to face each other on a stacked card as Fury and Usyk meet in Saudi Arabia.
