‘Feel like I’ve been robbed’

0 19


The IBF are known for being ruthless when it comes to enforcing their mandatory challengers and their latest victim is Joe Cordina.

The Welshman won the organisation’s world title in June in stunning fashion, as he knocked out Kenichi Ogawa in the second round of their bout.

At the time, promoter Eddie Hearn reacted on Twitter saying, suggesting it was a KO of the decade – or at least this year.

Cordina did not have long to enjoy the title, as he was swiftly called by the IBF to face his mandatory challenger, Shavkat Rakhimov, which was scheduled for November 5 in Abu Dhabi.

Recently, however, he was forced to pull out of his world title defence due to what looks to be a fairly gruesome hand injury.

Shortly afterwards, the IBF informed that, as a result of his withdrawal, he would be stripped of his world title.

Cordina reacted on Twitter by posting a picture of his hand injury, alongside the caption: “Absolutely gutted.

“Worked my whole life to become a world champion and I haven’t even had the chance to defend the title.

“Feel like I’ve been robbed!”

Cordina posted a picture of his injured hand, with stitches in it, explaining that he felt robbed given the IBF have stripped him of his title

This is not the first time we have seen the IBF being particularly strict when enforcing their rules around mandatory challengers.

In 2019, Canelo was stripped of his IBF middleweight title, which he had won against Daniel Jacobs just a few months earlier.

It came after the Mexican failed to come to an agreement with his mandatory challenger, Sergiy Derevyanchenko, before the IBF’s deadline had passed.

At the time, Canelo’s promoter, Oscar De La Hoya expressed his frustration with the IBF, saying: “We are extremely disappointed at the IBF for forcing the world’s best fighter to relinquish his world title. We have been in serious negotiations with Sergiy Derevyanchenko’s promoter. 

“We offered his team an unprecedented amount of money for a fighter of his limited stature and limited popularity, but the truth is that I’m now certain they never had any intention of making a deal. But instead they wanted to force us to relinquish Canelo’s belt. 

“This is an insult to boxing and more importantly an insult to the boxing fans of the world. This decision validates already existing concerns about the credibility of the IBF championship.”

Current WBC heavyweight champion, Tyson Fury, has also had problems with the IBF in the past, after he beat Wladimir Klitschko to win the unified WBA, WBO and IBF world titles in 2015.

Afterwards, Fury was contractually obliged to a rematch with Klitschko, but the IBF believed his mandatory should take priority and so stripped him of the world title.

IBF Chairman, Lindsey Tucker, said at the time, “Regarding the Klitschko rematch taking precedence, it’s just the opposite as the mandatory takes priority of the rematch.”

In the end it didn’t matter anyway, as Fury relinquished all his titles after taking an extended break from the sport due to suffering with mental health issues.
