It may be unlucky for some, but in their 13th career fight both Brad Pauls and Darren Cordona are hoping to entertain at York Hall
Fighting over ten rounds for the Southern Area Middleweight Title, the undefeated Pauls goes into the contest as the favourite having won all 12 of his previous professional contests with 7 of those wins coming via knockout.
Having already had an active 2019 with fights in both March & April Pauls fights at York Hall for the ninth time in his professional career.
Cordona on the other hand boasts a winning record of 7-4-1 with some notable opponents on his resume. Stopped for the first time in his career by the talented Linus Udofia in his last fight, it took 7 rounds for Udofia to overcome the tough Cordona in a competitive bout which was an eliminator for the English title.
Unlike Pauls, Cordona has been in title action before in his career, fighting Tey-Lynn Jones in Southern Area title action last Summer and ended up being on the wrong end of a close points decision.
Other than that, Cordona took current British champ Liam Williams the full distance over 8 rounds in the 8th fight of the Welshman’s career.
Although with a better professional record, the Cordona has picked up valuable experience in his career so far against the likes of Udofia & Jones whilst it’s fair to say that Pauls hasn’t faced anybody of real note as of yet.
With the above making the fight even more interesting, those in attendance will hope for a York Hall classic with the winner moving on in a thriving weight division in British Boxing.
