Anthony Cacace Poised to Upset Odds Against Cordina for IBF Super-Featherweight Title

Anthony Cacace underdog title shot

In a highly anticipated showdown set to unfold in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Anthony Cacace (21-1, 7 KOs) is gearing up to face his toughest adversary yet, Joe Cordina (17-0, 9 KOs), for the IBF super-featherweight championship.

Despite setbacks including cancelled fights, opponent withdrawals, injuries, and the pandemic, Cacace, the former British super-featherweight titleholder, has persevered, with just five fights since February 2019. Now, he finds himself on the undercard of the momentous clash between WBC titleholder Tyson Fury (34-0-1, 23 KOs) and unified champion Oleksandr Usyk (21-0, 14 KOs).

Originally scheduled for February 17, the Cordina-Cacace bout was postponed due to Fury’s sparring injury ahead of the historic undisputed title fight.

While Welshman Cordina has voiced frustration over facing Cacace instead of pursuing unification bouts, Cacace remains undaunted by his underdog status.

“I’m not just here to fill a spot. I’m here to seize that belt,” Cacace affirmed to Belfast Live. “Sure, the odds may favor him, but the pressure is on him to maintain his status. I’m just a guy from Andytown chasing a dream. Part of that dream is claiming victory on Saturday night, and I have full confidence in my ability to do so. This opportunity in Saudi Arabia is what boxing is all about, and I’m prepared to rise to the occasion.”
