About


Joe Cordina, born on December 1, 1991, is a Welsh professional boxer who has achieved significant success in both his amateur and professional careers.

In his amateur career, Cordina participated in various international competitions. In 2011, at the AIBA World Boxing Championships, he lost in the first round of the lightweight event to Eugen Burhard of Germany. In 2012, he won a bronze medal at the European Under-22 Boxing Championships, defeating German boxer Artur Bril in the quarterfinals. In the same year, he represented Wales at the 2012 European Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament. However, his bout against David Joyce of Ireland was stopped in the third round, leading to his elimination.

Cordina continued his amateur career and represented Wales at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland. Competing in the men’s lightweight division, he won several matches but lost in the semifinals to Scotland’s Charlie Flynn, earning a bronze medal.

His breakthrough came in 2015 when he won the lightweight gold medal at the European Amateur Boxing Championships in Bulgaria. This achievement made him the only British boxer to secure a gold medal at the event. Cordina also reached the quarterfinals of the lightweight division at the 2015 AIBA World Boxing Championships in Doha, Qatar.

In 2016, Cordina participated in the European Boxing Olympic Qualification Tournament in Turkey. He secured qualification for the lightweight event at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, by defeating David Joyce in the semi-finals.

Turning professional in the super-featherweight division in 2017, Cordina began his career with impressive victories. He won his debut fight with a fourth-round technical knockout (TKO) against José Aguilar and continued to secure victories against opponents like Sergej Vib, Josh Thorne, Jamie Speight, and Lester Cantillano.

In March 2018, Cordina faced Hakim Ben Ali for the vacant WBA International lightweight title, winning the fight with a third-round technical knockout.

Cordina’s professional journey culminated in him becoming a two-time super-featherweight world champion. He first held the International Boxing Federation (IBF) title in 2022 and reclaimed it in April 2023, solidifying his status as a prominent figure in the world of boxing. Additionally, at the regional level, he held the British and Commonwealth lightweight titles between 2018 and 2019.

Cordina’s achievements as both an amateur and professional boxer highlight his dedication and skill in the sport of boxing.
