There is a significant discrepancy with Cordina vs Vazquez boxing odds, which heavily favors Cordina winning the IBF World Super Featherweight title.
The current champion has a -1250 chance to win the featherweight boxing fight, which isn’t surprising.
Vazquez is a fine fighter at 15-1, but it’s always tough for the challenger to win.

Day/Time: Location: Casino de Monte Carlo Salle Medecin, Monaco
Money for Cordina
The 31-year-old British fighter is ranked fourth in the world, and a win on Saturday would take him a long way to getting a WBA or WBO title fight.
He is 16-0 following a split-decision win over Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov, which was closer than he would have liked. However, it was always going to be a tough matchup.
He should be featured in most boxing bets, given the short odds, but he shouldn’t be overlooked as a betting proposition because of the odds.
Cordina enjoys fighting in Monte Carlo, so the unusual arena won’t do his chances any harm.
“I have happy memories of fighting in Monte Carlo, landing the WBA Continental Title in my first outing down at Super-Featherweight, and I’m looking to put on another explosive performance on November 4 as I continue to work towards unifying the division,” Cordina said.
Cordina vs Vazquez boxing odds might have the Welshman at skinny odds, but he shouldn’t overlook his opponent.
He was given a scare in April, and he has been tested in the past against easier fighters.
Is Vazquez a Good Underdog Bet?
Tonight’s boxing tips might not have Vazquez winning, but he has done well to get a title shot.
The 28-year-old American is ranked outside the top 50 in the world, so he shouldn’t be expected to beat Cordina. However, he defeated Brayan De Gracia nicely to win the IBF Inter-Contiential featherweight title.
That fight came in July, so it hasn’t been long between drinks. That could help him in preparation for this fight, as thinking about it for too long could be counterproductive.
Cordina vs Vazquez boxing odds have him at +700, so he’s unwanted by the sportsbook, and it’s rightfully so.
He might have a nice career at a more manageable level, but we can’t see him winning a world title anytime soon.
“With the resources I have around me now, I can throw all my focus into boxing,” Vazquez said. “With Cordina, I plan to give him different looks. If he is studying my last fight, thinking I’m going to be flat-footed and right there to hit, he is going to be wrong. The key to beating Cordina is not allowing him to fight from range, to keep him uncomfortable.”
Cordina by Decision
The most likely outcome is Cordina winning by decision, which pays -105 with the sportsbook.
Cordina doesn’t have a massive right hook, and he’s not always looking to win by knockout.
Therefore, we’re taking the -105 to win by decision for the 12-round fight, which could be void of big moments.
