Welshman Kody Davies will get the opportunity to fight in front of his home fans once again as the super-middleweight contender has been added to the Joe Cordina v Sean ‘Masher’ Dodd JDNXTGEN undercard at the Ice Arena Cardiff on August 4.
Davies, 24, is undefeated in five pro bouts and has been tipped for big things following an impressive run in the amateur ranks.
Manager Sam Jones confirmed the news on Tuesday night as Davies prepares for yet another big undercard slot in the early stages of his career.
Previously, Davies had featured on the Tony Bellew v David Haye 2 bill at the O2 Arena on May 5th.
A stacked undercard will support the Cordina v Dodd main event in the Welsh capital, and it’s a huge night for Wales’ Commonwealth gold medal man Sean McGoldrick fighting on home soil for the first time in the paid ranks in his seventh pro fight.
Natasha Jonas steps up her hunt for World honours with a first defence of her WBA Super-Featherweight Inter-Continental title, Rio Olympic gold medal stand-out Daniyar Yeleussinov fights for the third time in the pros, unbeaten Featherweight talent Jordan Gill continues his journey to more titles and there’s more action to be added.
“I’m excited to be bringing JDNXTGEN to Cardiff for the first time and even more excited by the main event,” said promoter Eddie Hearn. “Joe Cordina has looked sensational since his pro debut but now faces a different test all together in a very experienced and gritty Masher Dodd who is determined to win his title back.
“The undercard is stacked with talent. Local boy and Commonwealth Games gold medallist Sean McGoldrick finally getting the chance to box in Wales and 2012 Olympian Natasha Jonas will defend her WBA Inter-Continental title. Rio Olympic gold medallist Daniyar Yeleussinov is in action again and undefeated Featherweight star Jordan Gill continues to hunt down titles.
"There’s lots more to add and plenty of Welsh talent on this juicy August 4 card.”
