Kenichi Ogawa will defend his IBF junior lightweight title on the road today in Cardiff, Wales, facing hometown fighter Joe Cordina in a 12-round main event airing live on DAZN.

Live coverage and updates will come in the comments section of this post starting at 2 pm ET.

Ogawa, 34, won the vacant belt last November, taking a decision over Azinga Fuzile in New York. The 30-year-old Cordina was once a hot prospect for Matchroom, but has sort of stagnated the last couple of years, and the former British and Commonwealth champion will be taking a sizable step up in competition with this fight.

Also on the main card: Faroukh Kurbanov defends the European 130 lb title against Zelfa Barrett; Dalton Smith takes on Mauro Perouene in a 10-round bout at 140; featherweight prospect Skye Nicolson makes another quick return; and Gamal Yafai moves up to featherweight looking to get his career back on track after losing to Jason Cunningham 13 months ago.

There are also prelims starting at 11:45 am ET but even by prelim standards they’re pretty awful.
