(JAN 16)  Debuting professionally at the tender age of 14 (February 27, 2010), Dayana "Diamante" Cordero is certainly a "Diamond in the Rough."

Cordero, born on December 18, 1995, in Caucasia, Columbia, fell in love with the sport at a very early age. By the time she was 7 or 8 years old she was already boxing with the local boys in her town. The lack of financial support in her household forced Dayana to work but boxing was her passion and at the age of 14 she turned pro defeating a much seasoned fighter in Maria Andrea Miranda.

Now 21, Cordero has already experienced world title bouts against the likes of former world champions Monica "La Gata" Acosta, although inexperienced at the time (May 11, 2012) and out of her natural weight class (Bantamweight- 118 lbs); against Yesica Marcos (October 6, 2012), and the most memorable of these against multiple world champion Alejandra "La Locomotora" Oliveras (February 23, 2013), in which Cordero went the distance despite numerous low blows by Oliveras; https://youtu.be/aidux6avxCc

Although from Columbia, Dayana Cordero resides and trains in Panama City, Panama under the tutelage of former world champion Ricardo Alberto Cordova, and managed by Alex Rambal.

WBAN Resource Team was contacted by Team Cordero who stated; "Dayana Cordero won the WBA World Bantamweight interim title on January 15, 2016, against Sayda Mosquera and, defended the interim title on May 20, 2016, against Maribel Ramirez. A year has gone by and Cordero is yet to be given the opportunity of vying for full title against current WBA Bantamweight World Champion Mayerlin Rivas," but that she is optimistic if getting her opportunity soon, they added.

Team Cordero also mentioned having watched the bout between Amanda Serrano vs Yazmin Rivas in the U.S., and said; "That was a great fight and a goal for women's boxing." That if Mayerlin Rivas (no relation to Yazmin Rivas) does not confirm mandatory title defense (immediately) as per WBA Rules & Regulations which states "a world champion MUST defend his/her title within 6 months of capturing it" (not 1 year), that they will seek to have M. Rivas stripped immediately of her WBA World Bantamweight title and begin negotiating to defend said title in the U.S., if given the opportunity.

Team Cordero thanked WBAN and said they will keep us informed of any developments.

WBAN certainly looks forward to new developments not only in the Cordero-Rivas matter but any and all data, reports, bios, photos and videos associated with women's boxing.
